When I was designing this website and thinking about the pages I wanted to include, I stumbled across College Info Geek’s Impossible List. He got the idea from Joel Runyon, the original creator of the The Impossible List™. Joel wrote a must-read blog post where he explains the difference between a Bucket List and The Impossible List. I was hooked.

“It’s fluid, updating status of what’s coming, what’s next and where you’ve come from. It’s always changing, always updating and always evolving. The impossible list isn’t just a piece of paper, it’s a commentary to yourself on how you’re living.” – Joel Runyon

So without further ado, below is MY Impossible List, a page that I will update regularly. It is both personal and public in the hope that by sharing it here, ya’ll can keep me accountable.

"Here’s what I know about the realm of possibility— it is always expanding, it is never what you think it is. Everything around us was once deemed impossible. From the airplane overhead to the phones in our pockets to the choir girl putting her arm around the metalhead. As hard as it is for us to see sometimes, we all exist within the realm of possibility. Most of the limits are of our own world’s devising. And yet, every day we each do so many things that were once impossible to us.”
