So woke up early this morning way earlier than necessary but it was real good because for once I could go back to sleep. When I finally went up I had a great hotel breakfast and after that I checked out as a took a cab with my new colleague J to the construction work environment course where I then spent the day. A lot of thought not only for work but also for me outside of work. Think it was a real good course and I really like that the company invest the time and money in their personnel. A good way of showing the way for the rest of the industry.
After the course me J and two other shared a cab to the airport and flew home to Gothenburg. It’s truly amazing how many nice, driven and friendly people I’ve meet the last two days and that are my co-workers. Impressed a hell to be honest and feels good to be working where I am.
First of all why am I always get extra security control in Sweden and Europe when it’s so rare for me in the US? Could I look so much more friendly in the US maybe.
So up extra earlie this morning think that alarm went of at 04.30 just to be sure. Maybe a bit overkill but it didn’t bother me.
So a drive to the airport with almost non existing traffic on the highway. Why all of this? The explanation is that I’m today are flying up to Stockholm for two days of education with the construction company I work for. It’s an introduction and one work environment course. Looking forward to both.
So guess the day will be pretty full of stuff but really don’t know what to expect.
By the way I’ve listened to Chase Jarvis Live podcast today and the interview with Richard Branson which was perfect for my 1 hour flight. Highly recommended!
So last night I drove up to Oslo after work. It’s about a 3,5 hour drive but I usually stop for something to eat. G where out with her work so I got some time alone up here which I never anymore. So I had a beer and watching one of my new favorit tv shows Lethal Weapon and just relaxing. Pretty nice. From time to time I enjoy to get some time alone.
Who inspires you? That’s today’s question and topic here on the blog I have a few but these are my top 3 right now.
Chase Jarvis – Entrepreneur, Photographer
Richard Branson – Entrepreneur
Jon Olsson – Skier and Vlogger
So what’s in common for these 3? All of them likes to share what the learned, how the live and what they’ve done and face it all of the has done pretty well and are among the best in their field. The have a humble and relaxed view of life but work hard. All of these are things that I admire. Then they also make nice products.
Charse Jarvis takes the best photos I’ve seen so far ever and I when I watched him and how he interacts with other people when he works is pretty amazing (can be seen on youtube cheap camera challenge and Chase Jarvis , I’m sure you will find it. In order to see him work).
Richard Branson have always done marketing with bout small and big means bit always in a big and a cool way.
Jon Olsson, his video blog is just absolutely and beautiful and really cool to follow. I don’t do it every day but when I have some extra time I usually end up watching a vlogg video from him. Also a lot of nice locations.
I moved back to Sweden from Norway about 1,5 month ago and I’m still kind of settling in. My girlfriend G is still working and living back in Oslo, Norway. And I’m renting a room back in Kungbacka, Sweden which is about 30 kilometers south of Gotherburg and my hometown and the place where I grew up. So I miss G quite a lot but there is a lot of fun things going on back home which makes it easier. Then I travel quite a lot back and forth between Oslo and Gothenburg during the weekends.
But I love Norway and its really a place that want to visit pretty frequently for the rest of my life and to discover even more. But Gothenburg and Sweden is home somewhere deep down even if I’m open to other places in the future.
So tomorrow I will go back to Norway in order to spend som time with G. So right now I’m writing here on the blog, sending a draft at what I hope will become a book to a creative friend for feedback and packing my bags for my trip tomorrow. All of this from my working space and my new desk that I added as today’s’ photo.
I’m a Swede as you might know if you’ve read the blog earlier but I’ve always been fascinated by the US and my grandpa where born in the US. So I try to follow the Presidential Election from a distance.
As I understood both candidates are very old and and have is the least popular candidates throughout the history. Which I think is unfortunate for everyone. But I will not hide for any of you that I don’t think Trumph is the best fit to the the next president of the United States.
So I will have my radio on tonight for the first time in a very long time in order to be able to follow the election. Good night!
