If you’re reading my blog and returning, maybe you are too.
So, what is that?
I was introduced to the term in “The Davinci Method” by Garret Loporto. To date, it is the only book I’ve ever read in one sitting.
I was so excited because it was the first time I’d ever been shown the template to my type of personality! It was as if Garrett had interviewed me to write it!
A Davinci searches, seeks and strives
We are the artists, the innovators, the big thinkers, the dreamers, the sometimes insane or unbalanced, the champions, the warriors, the charismatic criminals, the addicts, the painfully misunderstood, the geniuses.
We think in wholes, not parts
Davincis see events on many levels, simultaneously and easily give voice to complicated topics. We don’t kneel before anyone, can’t keep our thoughts to ourselves and we won’t shut up. The status quo nauseates us. Authority makes our skin crawl.
We create beauty and remarkable items of interest that cause everyone else to think or wake up
We’re the canaries in the mine
DaVincis are the people that can spot the shifts in our cultures before everyone else.
We are the agents of change, the trendsetters.
A Davinci feels more
We emote more, are more descriptive and make deeper connections with others, faster.
We solve the problems no one else can
This is purely due to the fact that we completely do not see the world the same way as the masses around us do. And we see connections across multiple levels of thought and feedback.
We see deep, wide, and high…and we see how it all connects, assists, and influences one another. Life is a 3D map to our minds, defined by an envisioning ability most lack.
We see what’s not there…yet and have the faith to know that it will be and that we have what it takes to bring it to reality.
We’re the Sauce, the Zing, the Flavor
Davincis make life friggin’ interesting for everyone else in our lives. This is sometimes fantastic for us and sometimes a disaster. The things that make us the most interesting, the drivers deep within us, can also cause us pain.
“Normal” is painful to us
We have a higher threshold for excitement, fear, chaos, and danger.
When everyone around us begins to freak out as a new disaster hits, we come alive. We are the calm ones directing the screaming hordes. We are the fireman, the cop, the warrior, the boss everyone else turns to for help when everyone’s job is on the line as a group.
Understanding all of this kickstarted my awareness that I should demand more from myself, in order to have what I really deserved.
I had to somehow help others get what they needed on a scale I’d never attempted, because that same scale was how big my goals had become.
The way I’ve chosen to do that is through Ken’s Road Trip. Welcome. Let’s poke around in the fog together a bit, shall we?
