My Impossible List

The inspiration to create this list came from Thomas Frank who in turn got it from Joel Runyon. Excerpt from Joel’s description of the impossible list:

Not too long ago, I used to settle for the possible things in life. The sure thing. It was “realistic”, “safe” and boring as hell. I decided I needed a challenge.

The impossible list is that challenge.

This list of impossible things contains all the things I ever thought I couldn’t do because it was “impossible.” The sort of things that I assumed the cool guys on TV only ever got to do. The things I never thought that I would be able to do.

Note: My Impossible List is in its infancy.
