Domen Mavrič – Grab Life by the Balls

POSTED IN Personalities TAGS , , COMMENTS 0

I believe that life is wasted if you just sit around and wait for things to happen, I believe that we should grab life by the balls and make great things happen! Seen by his lifestyle and his nickname DOLO (Domen Only Lives Once) Domen Mavrič shares this philosophy and makes sure every second counts. Domen, with his business partner Katja Mlakar, runs AVI (Agencija vrhunskih idej) where his crazy ides can become reality and in his free time he’s all over the place kiteboarding, skiing, partying, traveling and spreading his positive energy on everyone he gets close to. I don’t even think it’s possible to be in a bad mood around him as his positivity is so contagious! So with his Sine Metu mentality he was an obvious choice for our interview.

Where do you get energy for all your activities?
A special energy came when I got a son. Even today he drives me and gives me fantastic energy that propels me forward every single day. The other energy is the one I get from people like myself, positive people. There’s not much, but believe it or not a few of those can give you enough energy for a whole army!

What’s the dumbest thing you’ve ever done?
What some people perceive as dumb, I usually perceive as different, daring. It is true though that recently my head was so full in the morning that I pulled up to the gas station and filled up my car. It would all be cool if I hadn’t just drove off without paying haha. It all turned out to be fine – in the company of many men in blue and lots of laughter.

How do you stay creative?
With positive attitude towards the world and everything around me. The more positivity you give, the more you get it back. I call it the boomerang of happiness.

What’s your favourite destination and why?
Well, I love to travel, at wintertime I like snow and in the summer I like to take a break for a while. Lately I’m attracted to endless lagoons where, through kiteboarding, you can find freedom that’s indescribable. But if you ask me where I like to lose myself it’s the streets of New York. Life there is a lot like myself – going on at tremendous speed. There’s no better feeling like good music in your ears and strolling around the avenues of Manhattan.

What’s your favourite gadget and why?
Everything related to iDevices. I’m actually and Apple freak. And other technical breakthroughs as well. Everything that’s unknown in Slovenia, I always like to test.

What’s your philosophy?
Life’s a vacation. If you know how to enjoy it the right way, of course.

Jaz verjamem, da je življenje zapravljeno, če sediš na svoji riti in čakaš, da se ti stvari zgodijo, verjamem v to, da moramo zgrabiti življenje za jajca in poskrbeti, da se dobre stvari dogajajo! Glede na njegov življenjski slog in vzdevek DOLO (Domen Only Lives Once) vidimo, da Domen Mavrič misli prav tako in poskrbi, da vsaka sekunda šteje. Domen skupaj s poslovno partnerko Katjo Mlakar, vodi Agencijo Vrhunski Idej, kjer uresničuje vse svoje nore ideje v prostem času pa je vsepovsod: kiteboarda, smuča, žura, potuje in širi pozitivno energijo med vse, ki pridejo blizu. Mislim, da sploh ni možnosti za slabo voljo v njegovi bližini, saj je njegova pozitiva tako nalezljiva! Z njegovo Sine Metu mentaliteto je bil očitna izbira za naš intervju.

 

Od kje črpaš energijo za vse svoje aktivnosti?
Prav posebna energija je prišla, ko sem dobil sina. On me še danes žene naprej in daje fantastično energijo, ki me vsak dan znova vleče naprej. Druga energija pa je tista, ki jo jemljem od sebi enakih, pozitivnih ljudi. Ni jih veliko, ampak verjeli ali ne, manjšina le-the ti lahko da energije za celo vojsko!

Kaj je najneumnejša stvari, ki so jo naredil?
Tisto, kar je za nekatere neumno je zame ponavadi drugačno, drzno. Se mi je pa resda pred časom zgodilo, da je bila glava že zjutraj tako polna, da sem zapeljal na bencinsko črpalko, natočil gorivo. Vse ok, če se zatem ne bi preprosto odpeljal, brez da sem plačal. (smeh) Pa se je kljub temu na koncu vse dobro končalo – v družbi veliko mož v modrem in smeha. 🙂

Kako ostaneš kreativen?
S pozitivno naravnanostjo na svet in vse, kar te obdaja. Več kot daješ svoje pozitive, več je prejmeš nazaj. Jaz temu pravim pojav bumeranga sreče,

Katera je tvoja najljubša destinacija in zakaj?
Huh, rad potujem, pozimi imam rad sneg in poletje, poleti se rad odklopim za dlje časa. Zadnje čase me vleče v neskončne lagune, kjer s kajtanjem zares najdeš svobodo, ki jo težko opišeš. Če me vprašate, kje se najraje zgubim pa so to vsekakor ulice New Yorka. Tam življenje kot tudi sam – drvi 300 na uro. In ni boljšega občutka kot dobra glasba v ušesih in lahkih nog naokrog po avenijah Manhattna.

Tvoj najljubši gadget in zakaj?
Vse kar je povezano z iNapravicami. Dejansko sem Apple freak (pacient). Pa tudi tehnične novitete nasploh. Vse, kar je v Sloveniji še nepoznanega, vedno rad testiram.

Kakšna je tvoja filozofija?
Življenje je dopust. Če ga seveda znaš užit na pravi način.
