How I am similar to Leonardo Da Vinci, the Renaissance genius?
I'm a 35 year old guy from India. Married since Y2K with two kids.(My wife made me put this).
I am an proud alumni of University of Florida, U.S.A where I completed Masters of Science in Industrial and Systems Engineering. Now I'm working in Bangalore, India as a Senior Program Manager. I have expertise in supply chain management, software development, software testing, and quality assurance. I am Six Sigma Black Belt trained too.

As for similarities between Leonardo Da Vinci and me, I think that both of us could count from 1 to 100. He could count in Italian too. I cannot.
How I continually refine my senses (Sensazione) like Leonardo Da Vinci used to?
I'm a fan of Bond movies and this is the official website . The mother - lode itself.
Check out the best Bond related website here.
If you want to check out another fantastic 007 site, check this out
In his lately discovered notebooks, Leonardo Da Vinci has mentioned that he was a fan of Bond movies too. Before he discovered Austin Powers movies.
How I have developed the balance between science and art, logic and imagination. (Arte/Scienza) like Leonardo Da Vinci?
You cannot leave without checking out Happenstance, Coincidence, Enemy Action , my James Bond web site. I would rather make a web site rather than make frescoes on other people's walls.
Each webpage on this web site is devoted to a single Bond movie. The page is subdivided into three categories. Happenstance (Prologue), Coincidence (Main body) and Enemy action (Epilogue). The immortal line in Goldfinger inspires the title of the web site. "Once is Happenstance. Twice is Coincidence.The third time it's Enemy action".
This website may not be Vinci's Last Supper but still figures in the Ultimate list of James Bond sites.
How I have a willingness to embrace ambiguity, paradox and uncertainty (Sfumato) like Leonardo Da Vinci?
If you people think that work sucks, check out The Dilbert Zone for laughing at your own misery!
Also you can read some Dilbert related stuff here where the concept of a happy and cheerful work life is discussed Dilbert style.
Alleged reliable sources tell me that Leonardo Da Vinci used to draw a daily comic strip for The Daily Italiano which was kind of like the Dilbert comic strip.
How I have recognition of and appreciation for the inter connectedness of all things and phenomena (Connessione) like Leonardo Da Vinci?
There is a Indian (not Apache or Seminole, but from India) hymn which goes like this

Om bhur bhuvah svah
tat savitur varenyam, bhargo devasya dhimahi
dhiyo yo nah prachodayat
This can be translated: Let us contemplate the spirit of the divine of the earth, the atmosphere and heaven. May that direct our minds.
Sounds like Zen or Confucius (whose best quote was: Man who jump off cliff, jump to conclusion) but it isn't.
Leonardo Da Vinci? Who? What? Is he Leo DiCaprio's Uncle?
Leonardo Da Vinci Leonardo Da Vinci (b. 1452, Vinci, Republic of Florence [now in Italy]--d. May 2, 1519, Cloux, Fr.), Italian painter, draftsman, sculptor, architect, and engineer whose genius, perhaps more than that of any other figure, epitomized the Renaissance humanist ideal. His Last Supper (1495-97) and Mona Lisa (1503-06) are among the most widely popular and influential paintings of the Renaissance. His notebooks reveal a spirit of scientific inquiry and a mechanical inventiveness that were centuries ahead of his time.
[Encyclopedia Britannica, 1994]
In the words of his biographer Giorgio Vasari: The most heavenly gifts seem to be showered on certain human beings. Sometimes supernaturally, marvelously, they all congregate in one individual. . . . This was seen and acknowledged by all men in the case of Leonardo da Vinci, who had. . . an indescribable grace in every effortless act and deed. His talent was so rare that he mastered any subject to which he turned his attention. . . . He might have been a scientist if he had not been so versatile.
If you want to know more or to become like me or Leonardo Da Vinci, read the book How to Think Like Leonardo da Vinci: Seven Steps to Genius Every Day by Michael J. Gelb.
I did. Now my IQ is half of Leonardo da Vinci's.
