Dreams about

To age as her grandmother, Ingeborg, who is 92 years old with strong values. She is almost blind but is still participates in training courses and keeps up with world politics simply because development makes her feel alive.

Can’t stand

I think stinginess and complacency is unbearable. To work for Odd. and avoid collaborations with people who are full of themselves is true luxury.

Inspiration comes from...

Working with courageous people who challenge others as well as themselves.

I am skeptical towards...

Categorical thinking leaving no room for new perspectives and deep understanding
