The Impossible List

“A life worth living is a life worth storytelling.” – Gilang Agustiar

After the dark days in the past few months, I decided to stand up and start to aspire about my dreams again. I realized that the previous the previous “Bucket List” I made lacks something.

It lacks flexibility. It keeps getting smaller as I grow. Some list actually irrelevant and not inspiring me to achieve more.

And then, I found this “The Impossible List” by Joel Runyon from ImpossibleHQ. I think the idea of it may work to help me accountable to my own dreams.

I want a meaningful life and I realize that to create my life meaningful, I need to push myself beyond the limit. To keep progressing and enjoying the journey.

The impossible list itself is a list that evolves as you grow. It’s not about things that you want to do before you die, but it focuses on how you live.

Okay, without further ado, here’s mine:
