My 10 Watershed Events Of The Last 20 Years (1992-2012)

leave a comment »


(In chronological order)

1)      1992 — Sid Bream (if you are a Pittsburgh Pirates fan you know what I mean)

2)      1994 — Buying my first house

3)      1999 — My wedding day

4)      2000 — Y2K

5)      2000 — Moving to the snow belt

6)      2001 — 9/11/01

7)      2003 — Northeast power outage of 2003 (8/13/2003)

8)      2006 — Starting Paceline Business Consulting, LLC

9)      2008 – The great recession

10)  2011 — Moving to Georgia (out of the snow belt)

These are the first 10 things that came to mind and some of them are really not that important but have left a lasting impression for one reason or another.  Y2K was really a dud as far as the event itself but the months leading up to it and the turning of a century was still significant.  Some events like my wedding day will last forever as well as the starting of my business.  The great recession is also leaving a big impact as it is now approaching 4 years later and unfortunately we are far from out of it.  Items 1, 2 and 7 were big for the day and left lasting memories but did not change my life all that much.  Items 5 and 10 are similar and have and will leave many memories as they affected my life every day in both good and bad ways.  Item 6, September 11, 2001 is my “John Kennedy” moment.  I suppose it also is for any one older than about 17 or 18 and younger than 53 or 54.  That is a large segment of our population that has the same “moment” that they can recall what they were doing when…

I know I left some items out like Hurricane Katrina and other disasters but I kept my list to things that affected me personally.  I am sure some of you may have a few items that are the same as mine.  What are your other watershed events in your life?  I would be happy to hear from you.  Have a great week.
