The first book I wrote was for my brother as a 40th birthday present. The second book, “All days are good days,” tells the story of my journey through a period of exhaustion combined with a whiplash injury. It is an insight into the diagnoses, methods, and my mindset to get well. After six years, I went back to work.
“Analogue, digital working life.”
The world of work had changed a lot, and I needed to update my knowledge. Combined with my professional background in occupational health and a passion for writing, it turned into a book project. The book “WIFL (Work In Fake Life) – Your guide to the digital working life” was published in 2013 and was the first book in Sweden about digital working life. It took me into the technology industry and small, innovative, and entrepreneurial companies, so-called startups, and scaleups.
“Change your mindset, not who you are.”
The new, digitized world of work and the need for solid self-leadership became increasingly apparent. The new condition required a changed mindset to lead oneself and others healthily and creatively. To continue to be oneself but to change one’s mindset. An overview of the new working life and its changing demands is summarized concretely and with practical exercises for a strengthened self-leadership in the book “I’m a Cebra on the digitized savanna – are you? How to succeed in the digitized working life” (2016).
There are still a couple of unpublished fiction books maturing on my computer. The text I’m working on now is for a book about leading others from within strong self-leadership in our analog-digital world. The blog here on the site, in unedited format, already contains some writing about it. If you are missing a topic in this area, please let me know, and I will write a blog about it.

WIFL- Work In Fake Life – Your guide to the digital working life.
WIFL is a look into cyberspace to get an insight into the vast and new digital working life. We are living and participating in the most significant change in work since the Industrial Revolution, and the significant changes are affecting work organisations, the labor market, and occupational health. Business models are looking different and are affecting leadership and organisations. The demands on participants in the labor market are changing and require self-reliance, drive, responsibility, and delivery. A recurring statement by the 22 people interviewed in the book is that “before you went to work, now work is something you do.” (Swedish, 2013)
I’m a Cebra on the Digitized Savanna – Are you? Change your mindset, not your stripes.
A book about changing your mindset and still being who you are. About adapting and happily strolling through life in the new analog-digital life. That by leading yourself from within. You will get concrete tools to use in this short, compact, and clearly written text. (English text, 2016)
