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.


My impossible list contains goals that would push my personal limits. Although personal, 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. My goal is to enjoy the process of pursuing all of these aspirational goals!
