Who is your “Leonard Cohen”?

Insightful author Susan Cain (I wrote about Susan with videos here and here) posted some questions at the end of her Facebook post yesterday. She talked about her crazy love for Leonard Cohen as she recently flew to Montreal to attend a concert that marks the anniversary of Cohen‘s death (a Jewish tradition to mark the end of a year of mourning). Here are Susan‘s questions:

Do you have a person like this [Leonard Cohen] in your life, who embodies things you want to say or do or be? Who is your person [Leonard Cohen]?

Here is my answer:

For me it is kinda a bunch of people instead of one person. I’ve a list of people that I call “Great Minds of Our Time” as they all inspire me in some ways. Here is my eclectic list of people from physicist to shoe designer, each very awesome in their own ways: Richard Feynman, Warren Buffett, Ronald Coase, Bill Cunningham, Malcolm Gladwell, Stephen Cook, Uli Sigg, Steve Wozniak, and Christian Louboutin.
