Impossible List

The idea of an Impossible List come from Joel Runyon, who created the world’s first impossible list and defined the difference between it and a traditional bucket list. Put simply, the impossible list is an ever-evolving list of experiences that build upon each other, help others as well as yourself, and implore you to take action. This is mine, which is, of course, ever-evolving and will be updated as new ideas flow in or list items are accomplished.
