My impossible list for 2015

Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.
— Muhammad Ali

I have always been inspired by Joel Runyon's Impossible List. He published the list back in 2010 as a challenge to myself to accomplish the impossible. Each entry becomes a compass to guide what you want to accomplish. A flag planted on the mountains to be scaled. These aren't goals but challenges. 

So below is my Impossible List for 2015.
