7 Things You Did not To Know About Me But I’m Telling You Anyway

Hard blue color work for everyone. Pa’s factory. Experience is not a beginning. 14 year old. Perhaps why; all these metaphors.

Stories really got hooked. Once ran a cinema. Cinema Paradiso; gosh. When in life do we realize the value in trying to smile, and be serious…at the same time?

If you can stumble; do it. The university-world. I did. Master in Engineering. But to be honest; didn´t like it that much. To much an underdog? Not motivated? Became professional at socializing the student union instead. Learning is so much bigger than ’education”.

However, graduated. If you can stumble again; do. Took a PhD, but in Management. Unusual academics can be an excuse. Any method that achieved learning; a good one according him. Spot on. Made the whole difference. Thanks up in the sky prof Albert. Who wouldn’t get stuck?

But practical business is tempting. For a pretty long time. Brothers in arms is a blessing. A really nice company came out in the end. Head of all projects at The Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences. Did startups, other non-academia-stuff, a management consultancy firm. At the latter we did big-scale learning-events, globally. Target groups; thousands. Life before the internet; different, but useful today.

Big-scale learning-events can be used as a train-station without wifi and trains.

Leaving academia? At that point in time, was a good decision. Just as good as it is, today, to be back. But still keep a foot in industry if you do. Thinking and acting; just two sides of the same coin.

Did early also stumble on Theodore Levitt. ”There is nothing as practical as a good theory”. Then Stephen Toulmin published Return to reason. That’s; a title. But I am pretty title-satisfied myself; “Stop! Nobody Move“. The thing is; we gain by stoping and figuring out.
