Guinness World Record set for longest career at one company. Walter Orthmann, 100, has worked at one company for 84 years.
From the post: What if you got your first job, and then just…never quit? That’s what 100-year-old Walter Orthmann did. The Brazilian recently set a Guinness World Record for spending his 84-year career at a single company.
Quick bio: At 15, Orthmann started as a shipping assistant at the textile company Industrias Renaux S.A. That was in 1938, the same year Hitler invaded Austria and the ballpoint pen was invented.
Eventually, Orthmann climbed the ladder to become a sales manager, and he’s stayed in that position ever since with no plans to retire.
He told Guinness World Records: “I don’t do much planning, nor care much about tomorrow. All I care about is that tomorrow will be another day in which I will wake up, get up, exercise, and go to work; you need to get busy with the present, not the past or the future. Here and now is what counts. So, let’s go to work!”
What a way to live!
What a standard to live by.
What an affirmation to embrace: “Here and now is what counts. So, let’s go to work!”
This guy’s a rock star. Go rock on Walt!🤘🤘🤘
