Impossible

This is my impossible list, kinda like a bucket list but sounds cooler. You’ll notice there are no dates on these tasks. I’m in no rush 🙂

I got this idea from Thomas Frank, who got the idea from Joel Runyon, who created the world’s first impossible list, which is “more than just a bucket list”. The impossible list is a continually-evolving list of experiences that build upon each other, help others as well as yourself, and encourage you to take action.

Think about what your true life goals are, and constantly evaluate your progress towards them. In other words, be mindful of your path.

Specialization is for insects.”
