Things Other People Accomplished
When They Were Your Age

Please send me your own accomplishment(s) or those of other people, famous or not, along with the corresponding ages, and I will consider adding them the next time I update this page (not very often). Note: I need the ages or I can't use them!

I especially need the following:

  1. Great or unusual accomplishments by people over 50.
  2. Inspirational achievements that anyone could do (for example, community involvement).
  3. Ordinary, everyday, or humorous accomplishments.
  4. Worthless, pathetic or dubious accomplishments.

This page is intended to be interesting, amusing, or even inspiring, but comparing yourself to the greatest people of all time can be depressing. Keep in mind that a lot of people who accomplished great things are dead now, and if you're reading this, you're not. So there's that. Also, few of the people on this list have accomplished the things the others have done.

If you find this page depressing....

My "Help for the Attitudinally Challenged" pages might also be a good antidote. And you might want to review the story of The Ugly Duckling - just because you can't purr or lay eggs doesn't mean you don't have talents of your own.

The Book of Your Life was originally intended as a book with alternate pages blank for you to fill in your own achievements. Read the Introduction to The Book of Your Life.

Alas! it is not till time, with reckless hand, has torn out half the leaves from the Book of Human Life, to light the fires of passion with, from day to day, that man begins to see that the leaves which remain are few in number.

— Longfellow, Hyperion, Bk. iv, ch. 8.
