Raising a happy, kind and considerate son as a single parent would have to be my greatest achievement. I am also proud of having run my own business for over 10 years, with very little upfront business training.
Publishing four books in a super busy month (September 2013) while I was working 60 hours a week just having gotten promoted as a Creative Director with my mainstream press client where I also had to travel the country seeing clients - all business class, plus extra hours writing the articles I contributed here on HG and WEN before becoming an editor here on HG. And still running chocolate walking tours...plus I really fell in love with my partner. Far out, all in one powerful month. One fell swoop...
After many years of hard work....I finally was able to work with inmates. Then I was asked to do a much harder job...which I can only say was the best opportunity in that field.It is all a matter, of sticking to what you believe can happen...and it will.
You have to be convinced, you will get there.....even if it takes 10 years as mine did.Patience is also the key .Nothing comes straight away, and if it did....you would not have achieved very much.
I'm not sure really. I've done many things I've been proud of... but I'm not sure what is my greatest achievement. I was published in a book recently, that was pretty good... but I don't think I'm ready to have had my greatest achievement yet. ;)
Crap, sorry chipp. I didn't realise you had already asked this question. One of my greatest achievements is effectively incorporating an intellectual analysis of bullshit and horseshit into an academic presentation.
Apart from the obvious re: family, I was thrilled with my results in one of my School Sports, over four years', & rising to THE highest achievement in both Grades' XI & XII!
Then in my Career, over many years', topping multiple, difficult exams, including four 'Dux of Class'.
I cannot express how marvellous that was for me, in the face of adversity!
Made me feel very proud indeed!
