About five years ago, I read a blog on the internet that planted a seed inside me. It was a list, called The Impossible List, compiled by Joel Runyon.
He compiled a list of all the things that he thought were impossible for him to achieve at that moment. And from then on, he set out to accomplish all these goals. With an enduring spirit of challenging his limits, he kept accomplishing all his crazy goals one after another.
He is a truly inspiring human being.
I’ve been trying to compile an Impossible list of my own. It took some time (4 years!) and a lot of courage to get ready to share it with you publicly.
