Let’s first break down impossibleness. For the sake of this
article, there are two types of impossible tasks. First, there are
impossibly dull tasks. This is work which requires no mental
effort, but is vast in size. Bug scrubbing is a great example of
this. At the other end of the spectrum are impossibly hard tasks.
These are tasks like, “Hey Rands, we need new product by
Christmas. Yes, I know it’s October. Ready. Go!”
Oddly, attacking both boring and hard tasks involve the same
mental kung-fu where your first move is starting.
