«Everyday happiness for me is to laugh with family and friends. It could be when my son and I don't understand an IKEA user manual and have to unscrew everything again, or through fun conversations over dinner with good wine and friends.»
Favorite tools at work:
My favorite app, I have to say, is Sudoko. Boring but true. It helps me reset when my head goes into "overload" at work.
My biggest hero:
My biggest hero is my grandmother. She had a level of wisdom and patience I try to reach in my own life. She grew up with nine siblings and had to take care of them from when she was 11. I guess that made her the capacity and the unique person she was. In meeting people who need care or help, I often reflect on how she would treat them, and I try to live up to that.
My moments of everyday happiness:
Everyday happiness for me is to laugh with family and friends. It could be when my son and I don't understand an IKEA user manual and have to unscrew everything again, or through fun conversations over dinner with good wine and friends – the point is being present together in the moment and forgetting everything else.
Tasks I hope will be automated in the future:
Travel expense reports, painting houses, and folding clothes.
Best SAP technology:
It's not really the technology itself – more how colleagues use it to create unique solutions. Like when my more technical colleagues like Ivar and Frank utilize the technology and develop solutions that make everyday life easier and faster for our customers, or when colleagues like Kim put the pieces together creatively and create, e.g., comprehensive flow for buying and selling in complex IT solutions in the public sector.
My secret dream that will never come true:
I want to write a book. I dream of sharing the myriad of thoughts that exists in my head with others because I think it's not really that unique – just not pronounced. I still hope that it will be fulfilled one day, but I possibly have to wait until retirement age.
I have become so old that ambitions to excel on the football field have been put down. Thus, I train in the gym, ski, and walk the dog to keep fit.
I try to spend as little time as possible on what I have to do, such as maintaining the house and cottage, and as much time as possible spending time with family and friends. That's where I gain and give energy – and feel like I'm alive.
