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.
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.
