Impossible what?

The Impossible List is like a bucket list on steroids. The first Impossible List was created by Joel Runyon, and I learned about it by watching one of Thomas Frank's videos.

I liked the idea, so I stole it from them.

It's very important to note that:

  1. My impossible list contains goals or items that would push my personal limits.
  2. It is something that is very personal, yet I still would love to share it with the world to feel more accountable to get them done!

I might not ever get to cross-off all or even most of the items below, but that's not the point. I just want to enjoy the process of pursuing all of these awesome things!
