My Impossible List

As I was reading How will you measure your life? by Clayton Christensen, I began to think about things that mean most to me and that took me to my bucket list. I realised that most of the things were things I just keep putting off and never actually work on them.

And that prompted me to search for ways to motivate myself to keep a track of things I am doing and provide a track on the most essential path that would bring most meaning to my life. There was this link on the third page of Google search (Yes, I search there as well!) that spoke about an impossible list by Thomas Frank from College Info Geek.

The impossible list is a concept which is a twist to the Bucket list which is all about things you wish in life and can achieve them. It is more or less static.

The impossible list on the other hand is dynamic. This list is about things I would never expect to achieve. These are things that only the big stars could do! But there’s no harm trying it out right? Also, each time one of the things gets checked off my list, I would have to find something more challenging and tougher.

In short anything I feel is Impossible as of today goes into the list with me trying my best to achieve it!
