Fredrik Carlstrom discusses the trouble with politics.
Question: What Keeps You Up at Night?
Fredrik Carlstrom: It depends on what-- hey, I mean, a lot of different stuff, I guess, keeps me up at night. I’m a good sleeper, so I don’t usually stay up at night, but I mean, it could be little things like politics keeps me up at night. And it could be big politics in the world. And it could be politics within clients and within organizations that are really tedious. I mean, I think that patience is a very overrated virtue, and I have none of it. And I just-- it frustrates me when people don’t have the same-- when things can be better, I really want to make it better. And so it really frustrates me when things are sort of stalled, or screwed up for sort of political reasons. It really pains me.
