What Have You Accomplished?

This website is inspiring and depressing at the same time.

Things that other people have accomplished by age

I find that putting in really young ages (under 10) is really astounding. For example:

At age 5:

Actress Shirley Temple received an honorary Oscar.

Mozart began composing minuets. Once when a second violinist failed to appear for a string quartet performance, Mozart took his place, even though he’d never seen the music.

Yo-Yo Ma started playing Bach’s Suites for Unaccompanied Cello. His father told him always to play a movement of Bach before bedtime, to assuage fear, hunger and loneliness.

Pianist Mieczyslaw Horszowski played the Bach Inventions from memory.

Irish mathematician William Rowan Hamilton learned Latin, Greek, and Hebrew.

Ukrainian composer Sergei Sergeyevich Prokofiev composed his first piano work.

Chilian pianist Claudio Arrau made his recital debut with pieces by Mozart, Beethoven and Schumann.

Those people make me look a like grade-school chump. I think the only thing I accomplished at 5 years old is learning how to read and riding a bike.
