I still in Hawaii for another couple of days trying to build some momentum on my list. Luckily my friends out here have been really supportive in helping me do some really cool things.
So far I have Hiked Diamond Head and watched the sunrise, Stand Up Paddle Surfed Wikiki Beach, Ate a Fish Head, Ate a traditional Hawaiian Meal, I sat in Pele's chair and hiked Makapu'u where I was able to swim in a beautiful tide-pool.
It has been fun being here in Hawaii and seeing how eager my friends are to support me in this endeavor. They all have jumped at the opportunity to take pictures, suggest places to go, and get up before the sunrise to brave throngs of Japanese tourists to get to the top of Diamond Head.
What has also been really special for me is that I have had several people email me to tell me that my list is now inspiring them to make lists of their own. This is EXACTLY what I wanted to come from this challenge. I wanted people to challenge themselves. To say, "Gee if he can attempt 1000, what can I do?" That is just it, what CAN YOU DO???
It does not matter if the list is 1000, 100, 10 or even 1 the point is that you are making a list, demanding more for yourself and what you will do in your life. We all have the same 24 hour clock to work with and thus it falls on each and everyone of us as to how we will do our best to maximize it.
I love all your feedback. I want to apologize in advance if I cannot get back to everyone individually. As I am getting more followers (yea!!!!!! Remember 50,000 is the goal for FaceBook) it will be more difficult for individual responses, but I will do my best.
Thank you all for all of your support in these early days. Seeing the love and support being thrown out is inspiring me to wake up each day, excited for the challenges and adventures to come.
