The Renaissance Man of Today

The Term

What does "the renaissance man" mean? Does it refer to a male being caught in history? Does he wash his face in a basin, live in a house he built, or grow his own food? Not at all. The term "renaissance" in this theory is a sign of intelligence. The renaissance man is knowledgable about different topics not only in todays society but also throughout history. He is open to new idea's and theories.

This type of man constantly attempts to learn; always studying and searching for reasons. He isn't satisfied being good in only one subject. He has many different hobby's and very handy to have around.

How to become a "renaissance man"

You might not have a lot of time to learn new trades. Full time at work and a family at home, you barely have time for yourself. Go to Borders, Barns & Noble, or and search for books that interest you. You might not read much so there are other options. Go to netflix and watch documentaries. You don't only learn through reading. Learn every way possible. In your home, while you are at work, even when you are with an enemy.

Pick up cook books about grilling. Build a shed in your backyard if you have never attempted before. Try new projects that you never considered before. People focus on what they have learned and use these talents to their advantage.

Learning new talents opens possibilities that you have never considered before. People will consider you as valuable as a friend and acquaintance. Your mind with be filled with knowledge.
