The Impossible List is a list of audacious goals that I never could imagine myself accomplishing, yet I strive to do just that. It is inspired by the writings of Joel Runyon over at his Blog of Impossible Things as well at his Impossible HQ.

The impossible list is NOT a bucket 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 never 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. — Joel Runyon
