Your Greatest Accomplishment

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Your Greatest Accomplishment

Post by RickyBobby » Thu Apr 18, 2019 6:04 am

What is your Greatest Accomplishment in your life, of which you are most proud?

Do you have something planned to match or beat your personal best?

Making friends with you BJ. A man who has so many views so totally different to my own.

Not my greatest achievement but it does surprise the heck outa me. Or maybe I'm just getting old and don't want to arm up and go into battle against the forces of darkness (you) as much as I used to..

Some people think that great accomplishments are those which get media coverage.

Many people that do worthwhile things which dont get media coverage.

There are good people in Cambodia who have done a lot for others. These are great accomplishments.

Also true for me. My three beauties, which have now produced three more, so far. They will always be my greatest accomplishment.

My greatest accomplishment to date (apart from ditching the 'wife') is reaching 60. I hope to better that accomplishment by reaching 61.

@Ricky Bobby, do you have a greatest accomplishment? - in less than 1000 words.

Being at the helm of probably one of the most important companies in this country's history (for the little guy out in the sticks), as it turned from near certain bankruptcy, into the underappreciated behemoth it is today; providing basic financial services to 100% of the country along with a whole bunch of indirect benefits to other industries and small businesses that I'd hope some future economist or Cambodian central banker will finally look back and appreciate the incalculable difference it made to general Cambodian economic growth during this period. There were foundation stories before my time, and I'm sure some intriguing stories after my time too, but I think that transition period (2011-15) is probably one of its finest chapters as the butterfly emerged from the chrysalis, and one I will be proud of probably right up until the day I shalt snuff it!

While trying to avoid getting all gushy...
Surviving last year, to become a Dad this year.

8days old, I would never have guessed, let alone bet on this happening at my age. My next great achievement shall be watching him grow up, hopefully... one day at a time.
