My great-grandfather lived to be older than most. He lived into his 96th year. And that’s how he would answer the question of his age. When he was 90 and someone asked him his age, he would respond with, “I am in my 91st year.” He was proud of his age, proud of his longevity.
I work for a company that is far older than most. Walker is in its 79th year. Walker has been led by the Walker family its entire existence. Walker is currently led by the third generation of Walkers and the fourth generation is now on board and playing increasingly important roles.
Few companies live this long.
