    What do you consider to be your greatest accomplishment in both your personal life and professional career?

    For me, watching my children growing up to be decent, honest, caring individuals.

    Career wise...I would say that I pride myself in the fact that I have always given 100 + % in all that I have done and will continue to do regardless of the direction this company has taken. (not a positive one).

    Oh well, 2 out of my 3 kids are decent & honest.....sigh.

    I have 2 accomplishments that really rate right up there. One is my soon to be 43 yr. marriage to my best friend ever! The other is battling cancer and winning for the time being.

    Both at times have been a struggle and a joy.

    Career wise, I just worked at whatever interested me as UPS moved us around. I did real estate in Utah, answering service operator in Idaho Falls, Phones at a car dealership in Salt Lake, Ohio Bell long distance operator in Akron OH. right out of high school. Also did babysitting in my home in Salt Lake.....hardest of the jobs!

    Over 9.5 Nice but you know what your center manager or higher ups at ups would consider their greatest professional accomplishment.

    I started out life as an adult at the age of 16, newly married with a baby on the way. We had some hard times for sure, but we weathered them together.

    I have been happily married for 22yrs and have been blessed with 3 beautiful children. I must say my family is my greatest accomplishment. Not that I did it alone, it was a team effort.

    Professionally, my greatest accomplishment is to just give 100% everyday. I do the best job I can, drive safe and take care of my customers the most effecient way possible. I am proud of the job I do.

    All in all, not too shabby if I say so myself.

    Once my dad blew a rod in my 1960 ford falcon(automatic) in low gear,I took the engine apart and fixed it.
    After that I turned into a lush with a bad attitude,now I'm a lush with a better one:happy2:

    Daily recovery from alcoholism.

    Without that foundation in place for myself, I have nothing positive to contribute to the world and my life would be unmanageable.

    rod retired and happy

    Personal life: being married to my wonderful wife (who lets me have all the toys I want) for 39 years. Two wonderful kids -rest in peace son- and a very pretty and intelligent daughter who gave us three beautiful grand kids. Oh and the son-in-law is ok too.

    I don't have what you would call a professional life anymore but I am proud to be a very active member of the Patriot Guard. I guess you could say one of my best accomplishments was being able to afford to retire at 53 thanks to the Teamsters and my financial advisor. As of June 27th I have been goofing off for 9 years-----I'm getting real good at it.:happy2:

    My first accomplishment was at the age of 17 to leave home and face the world on my own and survive.
    the ability to learn any skill that needed to be preformed.
    Accomplishment, by definition, is a something that has been done.
    I view my life as trying to accomplish.
    Above all else,
    the love, support and friendship of my wife of 32yrs is the one accomplishment that I try and renew daily.

    I have alot of respect for any single parent. I couldn't imagine how to manage raising kids alone with this job, it takes so much of our time.

    Bless those who do or have done this.
