“He who can copy can do.”
Leonardo da Vinci

Leonardo da Vinci, the quenticential Renaissance man!
His unquenchable curiosity and desire to invention make him not only one of the greatest painters of all time, but probably the most diversely talented person ever to have lived.[1]


The idea of “faking it until you make it” doesn’t actually mean being a fake.

It means knowing that you are probably not blazing any new trails and that there was someone who came before you that you can learn from.  Mentor, coach, copy… what ever you want to call it.

The greatest gift a mentor can instill is confidence; “You know you will because they can!”

Are you struggling with something today?

Find a mentor.
Look up someone who has done what you want to do and research how they did it. Create a plan and act.
