I adapted this post from one of my journal entries

Sometimes I wonder about my age

Being in my mid twenties I am often told “You’re still young”, but is that true?

  • I’m too old to start ballet
  • Too old to become a talented Julliard Musician
  • Too old to speak Swedish with all the right sound (This I have tried!?!)
  • Too old to become a Star tennis player

Where are the influential people who began their journey to greatness at 25 years old?

Issac Newton began working on his ideas of gravity and calculus at the age of 22. In 1668 the Science community began to take note of his work. He was 25 years old.

Many well-known Scientists made discoveries or created inventions around this times in their lives. Einstein, Faraday, the Curie’s. My life may not be what I expected but I am in good company.

Do know others who can be added to this list? It’s not restricted to Scientists
