Today’s Principle to Follow:
Principle #9: Read a Wide Range of Material, and Learn Broadly.
Even if you goal is to be an expert in one field, the world is becoming increasingly multidisciplinary. The people that make the greatest breakthrough discoveries often have some understanding of other fields. Einstein was a fantastic violinist in addition to being a leading physicist, for example. Often, what holds back some of the world’s experts is that they become so fixated on a narrow subarea within their field, and they don’t learn and grow in other areas.
This can be a mistake, because the world is naturally all interrelated. Biology and physics are related, Physics and math are related. Math and music are related. And music and sculpture are related. You get the idea. You can even make the jump that biology and sculpture are interrelated, as da Vinci did, one of the greatest artists, inventors, engineers, and polymaths of all time. He used this understanding of human anatomy to make his paintings and sculptures more vivid and real, and this is what captured people’s imaginations when they saw his work,. Imagine if he hadn’t learned broadly. He may have never become the great artists that we’ve all heard of.
