Path
• From outside the path looks like this:
• In reality it has been like this
Balance
All the things image
• Finish small jobs immediately
• Write lists (less stress when it’s concrete)
• Ask for help
• When I was writing the book the boys cooked !
• The best thing I have done was to taught the boys how to
cook
• On Sat or Sun I prepare my next week (add in the
calendar, also sports), I will change it during the week
but I at least have a plan for the week and the calendar
reminds me of things I should do (no need to
remember and stress)
Small tips and hints
• Remote work, more efficient
• No spending time in the traffic
• Laundry, dishes, spending time with the family, time for
exercise
• If you are tired, a nap for 15 min and you are as good as new
• Listen to your body
• I do work on weekends but only as much as my body system
allows, if I need to rest I rest
Small tips and hints
9
Be a ”Man”
• Be an example
• Whatever you do make sure you will feel ok to look in the
mirror
• Be proud of yourself and show that
• Take your space! But not at somebody else’s expenses.
• Be yourself, do not try to be somebody else
• Support others
• Be nice to people
What can You do?
10
• Prioritizing, prioritizing and prioritizing
• Making decisions
• Love to learn
• Saying: Yes 
• If you get an opportunity, do not forget to say yes!
• You have time later to be afraid and regret 
11
What are my skills?
• It is always balancing...do not expect that it will be
easier when something happens (”when the kids go to
school, when they...”)
• I started my first company when my boys were 1 and 3
• Teenagers..
• BUT keep the priorities! You and the family must always
come first.
12
Work and family
• I only started traveling when the younger one was 8YO
(my personal decision, not saying everybody should do
so) and very slowly (2007 trip to Croatia I took the
whole family with me)
• Make sure your family knows what you do
• Boys to the office
• Family members to attend events with me
• …
Work and family
• Nobody else will...
• Rest, eat well, enjoy life,...
• Physical Excercise is a MUST!
• ”outsource”
• Never, ever sacrifice yourself! DO NOT feel quilty for
thinking about yourself!
• ” Put on your own oxygen mask before helping those
around you”
14
Take care of YOU
• A friend at the gym asked me: ”How are you today?”
• I replied: ”Great! Never better!”
• She replied: ”How can you always be so happy?”
• I replied: ”It’s my life. If I’m not happy about
something I change it. Then I’m happy again.”
• She said: ”WOW!”
• If you like what you are doing you can have 42 hours…
How are you today?

Editor's Notes

  1. Started in a call center, worked for government on helpdesk, moved into security and auditing law enforcement, training, server support, data warehousing, early OBIA adopters with ODI, RMA in 2015, ODTUG Leadership Program, ODI lead, ODTUG Analytics Community lead, UKOUG, US-A, Team manager, Project Manager, Sr. BI Architect. When I am at a spot along this path, I couldn’t see or have any idea 2 steps ahead. It isn’t until you take that next step that you can see one more step in the future.
  2. For issues, but also when you don’t have issues. First try to solve yourself, but don’t spin your wheels long. There are people who like to help out. And there are people who are experts in this specific area.
  3. Figure out a thing. Then 6 weeks later you can’t remember and have to figure it out again. Notes, then notes with screenshots, then blogs, then presentations
  4. Proving that your technical, first assumption is not technical, still a work in progress, you should really confront
  5. USE this slide in your presentations!!!!
