Impossible list is an always changing and evolving list that requires action today.
Unlike bucket list which is a list of things you would like to do someday.
In my last blogpost i talked about how most of us exist in what I call tactical hell. Going from bucket list thinking to Impossible list thinking is a good place to start becoming more strategic.
Here is my list which i will be constantly editing based on the events i experience or people i get inspired from.

They say half of your success is due to your creative skills and other half is how you express and show it to the world. Generally artists tend to be poor at marketing themselves. There expressing your creativity effectively ensures you make good use of it rather than keep it to yourself!
Seeing things from other peoples point of view is so powerful. You should be able to defend anyones by exactly knowing why they are the way they are. This does’nt mean you agree with them but can feel and see what they feel and see. This leads to understand human behviors needs and motivations, predicting how they will react in a certain situation and use effective communication skills. Only by hanging out and seeing day to day life style that you will truly understand people who are different than you.
