Update From Aruba & Your Bucket List Items

Hope you had a fabulous week full of 7 days of domination.

I am writing from Baby Beach on the coast of Aruba and am having a blast with some good friends.

Last week we discussed how I was doing a “Digital Detox / Cyber Cleanse” where I was not going to use my cellphone or laptop for a three days.  It was great to get away from the fast pace we all live in, get some quality time in with friends I don’t see enough.

You have got to try this.   Block out on your schedule, somewhere in the next 90 days some “DD/CC” (Digital Detox / Cyber Cleanse) time to slow down, turn off the technology and decompress.

I know what you are thinking, “I don’t have the time for this” – that is exactly why you want to do it.  Start with 2 hours, then, 5, then 12, then a day, then two, three… etc.  I think you will find it as re-energizing as I have.

Last week you also shared some of your bucket list items and we stressed how important it was for you to have your own “bucket list” a list of goals to accomplish and things to do in your life because of the energy and excitement it will provide for you to dominate every day and live your life with enthusiasm and fulfillment.

Here are some of my favorite bucket list items that were submitted by you, people of excellence who want to get the very most out of themselves and of this ONE opportunity we get at life.
