    Da Vinci's 7 Keys to Unlocking Genius

      *Apply the "Seven da Vinci Principles" and unleash your inner
      genius.*
      After studying da Vinci and his work, Gelb identified seven principles that
      all of us can use for tapping into our innate genius.

      • Curiosità: Be curious about everything around you.

      • Dimostrazione: Demonstrate things through your own experience. Think for
        yourself.

      • Sensazione: Sharpen your senses (this is the secret to enjoying life and
        savoring every sensation).

      • Sfumato: Be open to the unknown and willing to embrace uncertainty.

      • Arte/Scienza: Balance art and science, logic and imagination. Leonardo said,
        "Study the science of art and the art of science."

      • Corporalita: Balance your mind and body. In addition to being an artistic
        and scientific genius, Leonardo was physically gifted. He emphasized the
        importance of diet and positive attitude, and the effect of that positive
        attitude on health and well-being.

      • Connessione: Realize that everything connects to everything else. Look for
        ways to transfer your knowledge from one area to another.

      To be a genius like da Vinci, let your mind be alive with curiosity, then
      think things through in an original and open way by sharpening your senses,
      embracing the unknown that emerges before you, using logic and imagination
      together to solve problems, generating tremendous physical energy through the
      integration of your body and mind, and then making new connections.
