Impossible List

Dream it. Do it.

I’ve always thought about listing the stuff I’d like to do in my life. I think I’ve had a plain old bucket list in the form of a Notepad Text Note ever since I was in school. However, I never got around to anything on the list. The list would just passively lie there on the hard drive of my laptop. I was too lazy to take action. 

To fix that, I’ve created my impossible list. I got the idea from Joel Runyon, who created the world’s first impossible list and defined the difference between it and a regular bucket list. Put simply, the impossible list is an ever-evolving list of experiences that build upon each other, help others as well as yourself, and implore you to take action. This is mine, which is, of course, ever-evolving.
