I asked Jarvis to write about things a person could be excited about each day and here is what I got:

“What are you excited about today?

Every day, there's always something to be ecstatic about. Something in your life to look forward to and be happy for. It doesn't even have to be a big event or momentous occasion; it could just be the smell of fresh laundry or coffee in the morning that gets your mood going. It could be the face of someone you love when they walk through the door, or a long lunch break to relax and recharge. It can be anything, really!”

I’m still excited about using Jarvis ;)

Booked tickets to Madeira for a week. Warm weather, beautiful coasts, surfing, world-class hiking. Should be awesome.

It's been a long time since I've last been this excited. :)

Looks like a nice place man, enjoy!

I'm constantly using my abundance of free time to travel as well. My favorite way to spend money.

What have you been excited about recently?

Are you moving to a new cool place? Excited about new opportunities in your industry? Learning about a new business idea? Discovered a new fun passion? About to begin a new workout regime? Testing a new diet? Traveling to a new area or country? Found a new cool website, watched an awesome movie, listened to some great music, met a cool inspiring person? Whatever it is, feel free to share it here.
I've been working on a studio album. Just the mere fact of bringing a song in my head to life fills me with excitement.

Highly excited about the next 3 years, personal development wise but also because of the pandemic, things change faster than ever before in my life and new opportunities keep opening up.

Truly a unique time to be alive.

Personnally excited about the future, very blurry for now but just excited about life really.
Excited about the women ive not yet met but who will change everything, the problems that i will solve or the businesses that i will build that will give me the life i want.

Excited about the choices that i will have to make.
Excited about the thought of moving in the South of France or maybe another country where life is great , somewhere warm and with a seaview, a place that will be able to call home, but also to feel home.

The lack of directions doesnt change anything to me really, the visions has been there for years its just a matter of taking the right actions, step by step toward making that visions reality.

I'm excited by how many big opportunities there are in 2021. You can connect with people all over the planet and accomplish some really cool projects - make money, create digital and real communities, and make great friendships. Jet skis are also awesome, and I look forward to hitting 70+ miles per hour on the water again soon.

There has never been a better time to be alive - don't let anyone convince you otherwise.

I did my annual blood tests today, including a few new blood tests I didn't do last year. It'll be interesting to compare them considering big differences in my diet (switched from vegetarianism to veganism) and lifestyle (last year I lived in the tropics with ample sunshine, this year in a temperate climate).

Though perhaps excited is not the right word lol. I'm just relieved. I'm not a fan of blood tests but as much as I dislike them I believe it's a good investment in my health.

Because of the few more tests, I hit my personal record today. The nurse filled 12 vials of blood. My entire body was drenched in sweat by the time she finished and I was very close to fainting. Nothing like a fun bloodletting morning. :)

I'm on vacation on Madeira (actually about to leave tomorrow which makes me sad but that's another topic).

Today I surfed on waves at the upper limit of my comfort zone, roughly chest to shoulder high.

Sketchy at first to get into the water off a rocky beach and get used to the size of the waves but then much better.

I've surfed every single day since I arrived here (with the help of a local coach, an excellent surfer with 28 years of experience surfing and an inspiring guy in general) and it's been great for improving my skills.

Surfing is a hugely exciting thing for me and one of the reasons why I'm looking for a second home is to be able to live by the ocean. It's very hard to have a bad day when you start it with a nice surf session. :)

I'm in the US, and moved to California a few years ago after living in the midwest my whole life.

I won't stay here due to ridiculous living expenses, but after getting more comfortable with the ocean and getting into boogie boarding, it is an addiction. It would be incredible to own a home where you can just walk to the water each morning, and just take some time to get in the water and surf or boogie board.

What a thrill, it's been my favorite part of living here.

it is an addiction.

Oh yes definitely. Before I tried surfing I had been afraid that once I start doing it I'd become addicted to it. People had warned me that my life would change. And it did. It now dictates my travel plans and where I want to live in the future as well.

I’m working on a project that will help combat fast fashion.

“Yet another clothing brand”

Nope. None of mine. Yours, from your closet.

That if I can make it work, of course :rofl:

1st prototype works but will have problems with wear & tear.

I've printed over 600 invitations, went door to door and delivered them. The invitation is to a dinner at my house, for neighbors, once a month.
Do you have space for 600 people? :)
We invited neighbors and friends over all the time until C0VlD hit, it's been pretty boring/lonely lately. I've been talking to my wife about having people over again and this is a great idea.
I just wondered if you were out in the woods or something with enough space to have such a big gathering.
Obviously, we could start with 5~10 neighbors and their kids, which would be more than enough to overwhelm my wife.

possibly 600 people for dinner?

Can one afford such a thing on a regular basis?

Assuming only $5/ person that’s $3000 :(


Also, don’t get me started on social distancing :rofl:

No, what I do is I send those invitations over, with my WhatsApp number. People confirm their interest, and I add them to a waiting list.

Once a month I host a dinner at my house for 6-8 people. So a week prior to the dinner, I send out a few messages and whoever replies first gets a seat at the table.

Two days ago had our third dinner. It's been amazing, creating some awesome connections and friendships.

Very nice, thank you! My wife liked the idea!
