The Impossible List

It's kind of fun to do the impossible.
 - Walt Disney - 

One of the many places on the web that I have stumbled across in my many wanderings is the Blog of Impossible Things (  If you are in need of motivation life, this is a great place to start. It is a blog and business run by Joel Runyon that focuses on motivation to do something, to keep moving forward, to accomplish things.

One of his tools is an Impossible List. It's not a bucket list - it's a life challenge list.  It's a list of things to stretch you to do greater things than you thought were possible.  A list to help you realize that most things are not impossible if you work towards them.  And to see that there is great reward in accomplishing something you once thought impossible.

I'm including mine here to create a record and hold myself accountable to it.  I'll seek to update this as I check things off.  As you can see, somethings are more impossible than others, but each is something I would really like to accomplish.
