The Impossible List

What’s the Impossible List?

I found this not from Pinterest (shock horror!) but from Joel Runyon who came up with the concept here. My aim, is to tick off my achievements and reference this to any blog posts that I write about so you can see how I’ve done it. You can also find my Pinterest board dedicated to it here
