This is Adam’s impossible list! I got the idea from Thomas Frank who got it from Joel Runyon. Joel created the world’s first impossible list and defined the difference between it and a bucket list. Here is what he has to say about it:
The Impossible List is not a bucket list.
There’s a difference. Not just in the name, but in the entire concept.
Lots of people have a bucket list. They’re static things made up at one point in time that most people don’t end up actually incorporating into their lives and discard when things get tough.
The impossible list is different. It’s fluid, updating status of what’s coming, what’s next and where you’ve come from. It’s always changing, always updating and always evolving. The impossible list isn’t just a piece of paper, it’s a commentary to yourself on how you’re living.

Thomas talks about how you need to be mindful of your path.
Think about what your true life goals are, and constantly evaluate your progress towards them. In other words, be mindful of your path.
