Impossible List

The Impossible List

do i practice what i preach?

I wrote a post back in 2015 about my own Impossible List which you can read HERE. Recently I went back to Kansas to visit my family for a week and anytime I travel I suddenly get the urge to DO MORE. I think it’s because a airport is bustling with working people and I spend most of it reading, watching classes, or the like. The idea of moving from place to place, having a schedule of things to do also gets me more motivated.

While I was home I watched a variety of videos on Skillshare which I currently had a free trial for. I watched multiple videos on iphone photography and DSLR photography and suddenly realized I wasn’t learning or implementing anything new into my life. After I returned home I started working harder at advancing in my job and my hobbies.

I was relistening to Joel Runyon’s interview on the CIG podcast where he talks about his Impossible List, and I realized I never checked back on mine. Or updated it to where I am now: Living in Orlando, working for Disney. So, what have I actually accomplished? You can read my entire list at the post linked above, but the things that I did finish were as followed:
