I am Olov
Before getting too engaged in scientific questions, I did a lot of sports, especially running. This experience has helped me considerably. In sports you have long-term goals and train almost every day to reach those goals, as you do in scientific research. However, it was always fun to train, and sometimes the training was so fun that you temporarily forgot the long-term goals. It didn’t matter in the end, since I guess having fun was also a goal, and the enthusiasm for steady improvement only spurred on the results.
