On confidence and procrastination

Low confidence and feelings of incompetence are often linked with lower motivation levels and a greater likelihood of procrastination. Particularly, Da Vinci has frequently been noted for being an obsessive perfectionist— often delaying the completion of artwork for several years because the ‘hands and faces’ were not perfect.

On motivation and goals

Leonardo Da Vinci would have an instant burst of energy and enthusiasm after committing to a new project—only to lose motivation shortly afterwards, get distracted and start working on another project.
