Impossible List

The Impossible List is an ever-evolving list of experiences that build upon each other and implore you to take action in life.

I got the idea from Thomas Frank, who got his idea from Joel Runyon, who created the world’s first impossible list and defined the difference between it & a regular bucket list.

This is my impossible list, which is, of course, ever-evolving.
