My Impossible List

What is impossible list? To be short, impossible list consists of everything that you thought to be impossible. In order to arrange the obtainability and type of challenge in your life, you can make some sectors such as education, travel, personal life, etc.

Actually this post must be a personal one, but I have my own reason to make the post online. I will have a reminder that I have to do the things on this list. And it is not just a to-do list or maybe a bucket list, it is more than that, it is my ever-evolving list which lists what I want to achieve on my life and not just stops right that point, this list should include how. Still sounds like a bucket list? This will make it difference. We want to have our own achievement (it may be on your career, education, or maybe just happiness) and right this point all of us just have a future goal. All of things I figured is events in the future – some indefinite time (it may be tomorrow, next week, next month, next year, or maybe you will run your time out before getting it!). It does not implore us to make action now elaborately.
