The line between impossible and huge effort possible goals?

Question from a reader -

Hi! Interested to hear your thoughts about this: where do you draw the line between impossible and huge-effort-possible goals?

First, I'll be honest. I don't have a perfect neat answer for this that's epiphany generating... I'm going to try to work through it on paper, and I appreciate feedback from everyone in the comments if you have related ideas.

Let's get started. First and foremost, I can't say this enough - study history! If you don't study history, you don't know what's possible. Period. You need to study history if you want to know what's possible.

Here's some good people to brush up on. Now, most people's reaction is, "I couldn't do that! He did so much!" But trace their steps, these men often came from humble origins and suffered much. Don't say "Wow." Ask, "How?" How did they do it?

Healthy Body Image: Plastic Surgery and 'Natural' Beauty

On The Best of Sett

Anti-plastic surgery arguments are bullshit. I don't mean not wanting it. There's nothing wrong with not wanting it for yourself: Plenty of people aren't ugly enough to justify the cost. But the argument that there's something intrinsically 'wrong' about is a load of horse dicks.

I've found that women who are philosophically against cosmetic surgery fall into two camps:

Some of these women think they are against plastic surgery because it's unnatural. It's the most common argument, and also the most intellectually lazy. In case anybody reading this is a dunce, or is the mentally deficient result of being malnourished by vegan parents, the idea that natural is good and unnatural is bad is not logically sound or valid. Plenty of natural things plain suck or are overrated. Female body hair, pimples and vaginal odor are natural and nobody's championing those. Would you really want to go back to a time where the only girls you could fuck didn't use unnatural things like tampons, soap, and razors? UGH, just put a dick in my mouth right now.

Even the wonderful aspects of natural female form really only go so far when it comes to visual aesthetics. If they natural beauty could get anywhere interesting, then why have females been doing unnatural things to themselves for thousands of years? Corsets, french manicures, douching, mascara, eye liner, tattoos, hair curlers. Think all this is just because we're fucked up by media? The primitive ones fuck themselves up the most!
