Do the Impossible

So yesterday we made a Life List. A list of things that we want in our lives. Today we’re shifting gears a little and making another type of list that will help encourage us to keep plugging away at it. Today we are making our Impossible List.
The Impossible List is a very interesting concept. It takes what most would call insanity and makes it possible. As long as you don’t give up and you keep working at it, you’ll find yourself doing things that blow your mind. The goal is simple: create a list of things that seem out of reach, and then reach them. Thomas Frank of College Info Geek states it best:
Put simply, the impossible list is an ever-evolving list of experiences that build on each other, helps others as well as yourself, and implore you to take action.
So here’s my Life List, categorized and slightly expanded into an Impossible List:
