inspiration! 100 accomplishments for every age

Business Insider has published an incredible list of amazing accomplishments achieved at every age, from 1-100.  While I didn't find the younger ones all that inspiring (I already know that many people accomplished amazing things much younger than me), I did find a lot of the ones that are older than me inspiring.



My favourites:

  • At 48, Umberto Eco, a professor of semiotics, wrote his first novel, "The Name of the Rose."
  • At 57, Frank Dobesh competed in his first 100-mile bicycle ride — exactly 10 years after he was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour.
  • At 68, the English experimentalist Sir William Crookes began investigating radioactivity and invented a device for detecting alpha particles.
  • At 88, Michelangelo created the architectural plans for the Church of Santa Maria degli Angeli.
  • At 99, Teiichi Igarashi climbed Mt. Fuji.
