Impossible List

This is my Impossible List. The concept was created by Joel Runyon. Its not a simple bucket list. Instead it is a list to drive me to do new and better things. The items on my list may not seem impossible to many people. They may indeed be things that many of you have already done. So, strictly speaking, they are not impossible. However, they are things that at this moment in time seem to be out of my reach. If I have learnt anything through my life so far though, there is nothing that is impossible, just things that haven’t been done yet. To me, those are the things worth aiming for.
