My ‘Impossible’ List

Recently a close friend of mine shared with me a YouTube video she had watched and in sense thought I’d enjoy it too. This YouTube video was by UnJaded Jade doing her review of her ‘Impossible’ List. I watched it and by no surprise, absolutely loved it. So I did decide to use it for my own inspiration; I’m writing my Impossible List!

What is an Impossible List?

An Impossible list (described by UnJaded Jade) is a ‘more actionable version of a bucket list’. You consistently re-visit it (in my case I’m going to aim for every 3 months), the goals are more do-able and you iterate upon the goals once completed. I have written many a bucket list in my time however following through with completing them is often where I (and many others) fall short. By sticking to my 3 month rule of revisiting this list it will hopefully keep me more focused in achieving these.

I have split them into a few sections and written my goals, some I know will be easily achievable, some I have previously done but would like to do again and others…. let’s say I’ve got a lot of work to do.

Thanks for reading,

  1. I love lists like this as I find they really do keep you on track and the sense of achievement ticking something off is great! I started my blog to document my own 101 in 1001 list which is a similar idea but 101 things I want to achieve in 1001 days. Good luck achieving this!

  2. You have some amaing goals. Most of my goals revolve around travelling or writing but I really should start including some academic and fitness goals because I never thought of them before <3

  3. I haven’t heard of an impossible list before but I have defo made a bucket list. You have some seriously cool goals and currently a lot of my goals focus around career and I think I need to think about personal goals that I would like to achieve in the future. Reviewing it every 3 months is a great way to stay on track!

  4. Wonder why Impossible List to means it can’t be done?

    1. It’s more of training you to believe it can be done!

  5. It’s a good idea to split the goals info different sections! And thanks for introducing an impossible list. 🙂 Good luck with your goals!

  6. This is such a great idea for a blog post, especially as you can revisit it frequently.

    I normally do a summer bucket list to work through but this year I decided to do a blogging bucket list to work on my goals for my blog. Really keeps you accountable.

    Good luck whizzing through your goals x x

  7. This piece of writing provides clear idea in support of the new users of blogging,
    that actually how to do blogging.
