Micheal J. Gelb has included discussion of this in the seven Da Vincian Principles (or seven steps to genius).

He uses Latin names (Leonardo's native language) to describe the seven principles.

The principles are:

Curiosita - An insatiably curious approach to life and an unrelenting quest for continuous learning.

Dimostrazione - A committment to test knowledge through experience, persistence, and a willingness to learn from mistakes.

Sensazione - The conmtinual refinement of the senses, especially sight, as the means to enliven experience.

Sfumato (literally "going up in smoke") - A willingness to embrace ambiguity, paradox, and uncertainty.

Arte/Scienza - The development of the balance between science and art, logic and imagination. "Whole-brain" thinking.

Corporalita - The cultivation of grace, ambidexterity, fitness, and poise.

Connessione - A recognition of and appreciation for the interconnectedness of all things and phenomena. Systems thinking.

that is precisely what i`m on about. renaissance thinking. question everything, especially if it doesn`t meet your needs.
if the job doesn`t exist you have to create it.
