To Do Lists

Leonardo da Vinci is definitely pre-Georgian era, but his To Do list is fascinating. I wonder what Isaac Newton's list might have contained? Or Humphrey Davy's?

What do you think?

From top to bottom: Leondardo da Vinci self-portrait, Isaac Newton, and Humphrey Davy.

Both Newton and Davy were president in the Royal Society: Newton (who had been knighted) from 1703-1727, and Davy (who had been created a baronet) from 1820-1827. But their contributions are stories for another day.
