6 people who did it their way

These people are giving “original and best” a whole new meaning.

THERE ARE SOME people in the world that do things a little differently to everyone else.

We all know one: a true original. These people do ordinary things in extraordinary ways and put their own twist on things everyone else takes for granted.

4. Taking their time

Most of us imagine that success must come in our 20s and 30s, but a lot of famous thinkers, creatives and business people through the years have actually found success in later years.

Peter Roget didn’t invent the thesaurus until he was 73, Charles Darwin didn’t publish his theory of evolution until he was 50 – and the inventor of instant noodles, Momofuku Ando, didn’t dream them up until he was 61. So now! You’ve plenty of time.
