In Others’ Words: Something Else
I don’t know about you, but there are days when life feels simple … and then there are days when life is nothing but a snarl of complications.
Today I’m going with Leonardo da Vinci’s “Life is simple” view of things. Why not? If a true Renaissance man like da Vinci — a painter, sculptor, inventor, musician, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist, and writer — can call life “pretty simple,” I’m intrigued.
Unpacking today’s quote, I like how da Vinci acknowledges how our efforts produce both success and failure. But for him, the most important thing — “the trick” — was in doing something else.
Doing something else. Never settling. Forward motion. Not quitting — whether you failed or won and could enjoy a round of applause.
That’s the part of the quote that’s caught my attention: the doing something else.
In Your Words: Do you agree with da Vinci? Is life simple or complicated? And when you succeed or fail, do you pursue the doing of something else?
