What career path did you imagine for yourself when you were younger?
"At a very young age I had the same dreams as my seven-year-old son has today. I wanted to be a policeman, a pilot or a firefighter.
But honestly, I didn't fight that much to achieve those dreams. During the school holidays I was lucky to have a lot of different jobs and I was able to try out a variety of different professions. I worked in a book store and in a control room in a powerplant, for example. The weirdest summer job I had was to vacuum-clean a flour mill in Norway.
Once a year they closed down the mill to get rid of all the dust when all the rooms where white with flour-dust from floor to ceiling. It wasn't as boring as it sounds, it was kind of encouraging to see the instant result and it was impossible to cheat, since it was quite clear if there was still flour left. Long story short, I didn't have a clear picture of what I wanted to do, but I was always curious and openminded."
