How to live an exciting life

Here's a collection of my favorite advice on living an exciting life.

From Paul Graham’s Life is short

  • Life is too short for the unimportant, unnecessary things in life. Focus on the things that make you happy, the things you love.

From Neel Nanda’s Live a Life You Feel Excited About

Life is most interesting when you have:

  • Inherent motivation
  • Autonomy
  • Novelty
  • Learning
  • Tight feedback loops
  • Social connections
  • Visceral experiences
  • Pursue the best

From Dustin Curtis’ Life is too short to be a boring company

  • Focus on finding things that excite you, don’t copy what other people are doing. Take inspiration, but know you can’t find happiness in another’s life.
