Overview Modig

Imagine that every day of your life is represented by a Post-it sticker. From the cradle to the grave you have perhaps 30,000 Post-it stickers at your disposal. You pull a sticker off every day. It never comes back. Are you satisfied with what was written on the sticker? Or do you long for something different? Can you do anything about it?

This was the question Svein Harald Røine grappled with when he suddenly became unemployed. He realised that the new situation offered a golden opportunity to find out what he wanted to change in his life, both at work and privately. Assisted by a skilled coach, he set out on a journey with many surprising challenges where he had to move out of his comfort zone. This is the process which he describes in the book, with humour, warmth, mixed terror and delight, embarrassment – and pride. He learned how to deal with fear.

Svein Harald Røine wants to help people to be more courageous in their everyday lives, at work, at home, in leisure time, in both big and small matters. With courage we can defy fear, shape changes and attain new goals.
