Leonardo da Vinci on Focus

Discipline, Focus and Consistent Effort


“You will never have a greater or lesser dominion than that over yourself...the height of a man's success is gauged by his self-mastery; the depth of his failure by his self-abandonment. ...And this law is the expression of eternal justice. 
He who cannot establish dominion over himself will have no dominion over others.” 

― Leonardo da Vinci
“As every divided kingdom falls, so every mind divided between many studies confounds and saps itself.” 

― Leonardo da Vinci

A small daily task, if it be really daily, will beat the labors of a spasmodic Hercules.

-- Anthoony Trollope
