How Accomplished Are You?

How is your resume looking? Have you achieved a great deal by this time in your life, or are you 45 and still running a cash register at the grocery store? (Not that there is anything wrong with that…)

I found a site to ruin what self esteem you have. Things Other People Accomplished When They Were Your Age.

Here’s my list:

Francis Scott Key, after witnessing the bombardment of Fort McHenry, publishes “The Star Spangled Banner.”

Judith Guest began writing her first novel, Ordinary People.

After defeating Antony and Cleopatra’s forces in a naval battle, Augustus became the master of the Roman world.

Matthias Jakob Schleiden, a German botanist, formulated the cell theory of physiology.

Go in and put your age in. I dare you.

  2. My favorite for my age is

    Famous mathematician/songwriter Tom Lehrer recorded “An Evening Wasted With Tom Lehrer,” in which he commented that “By the time that Mozart was my age, he’d been dead three years.”

  3. For my current age, the biggest one was: “Alexander the Great had conquered almost the entire known world.” I’m nowhere near that. But I won’t die at age 33 either.

  4. Oh, no, can’t top this one:

    Miss Tiffany Lee Brown of Portland, Oregon simultaneously sang and lit up fire torches on the tips of her fingers.
