Episode 1 - Addressing the unspoken things in Academia. Meet the academic blogger Dr. David Larsson.
In this episode we will talk to Dr. David Larsson Heidenblad, who is an Associate Professor and deputy director for Lund Centre for the History of Knowledge (LUCK). Since 2019, David is also a successful blogger in academic writing. His blog posts were published as a book in 2020, called (Ett år av akademiskt skrivande) One year of academic writing.
In this book, David documents his writing and working process and all things related to life in Academia, also topics that people do not always talk about. For instance, he stresses the importance to be able to say no to opportunities coming your way in order to save time for things that are really important to you.
You treat every opportunity which comes to your way as a sort of once-in-a-life time thing, but what I learned is that opportunities keep coming.
David also tells us about how he uses planning as a stress reducer.
The intention of planing is not to make my life rigid, it is about making the boundaries clear and making sure that I move in the right direction.
