Impossible list

After coming across the “Impossible List” on Lee Fallin‘s (@LeeFallin) blog, I have decided to give it a go and create my own Impossible List. An Impossible List is a  list of goals which, unlike a bucket list, which is based on things to do before you die, is there to focus on how you go through life. More info on Impossible Lists here.

I will probably not be able to get all of these done, and the list will invariably get longer, but it’s a start:

  • Become an amazing allotment gardener
