I’ve always been one for making lists and recording the things I do. It does a couple things for me, such as keeping me focused on my goals and also letting me look back when I’m working really hard on something that may be challenging at the moment and saying, “Look at what you’ve done already; you’ve got this.”
I’ve made several lists in different places, like my summer checklist, the international goals I had while working abroad during my junior year, and even the worldly travels map I created on Google Maps, detailing my adventures. That’s why when a friend showed me Joel Runyon’s Impossible List, it inspired me to create one of my own. As he explains on his site, “an impossible list is NOT a bucket list” of things to check off before you die, but rather, a constantly expanding list that motivates you to live life to the fullest, accomplishing things over time that at one point or another, seemed impossible.
My “Impossible List” now has it’s own page on this blog and will be updated frequently including links to pictures, blog posts, and video when it is available. I challenge you to make an impossible list of your own; and to let me know what you think of mine!
