L'entusiasmo che mi serve è nella mia mente. Lo lascio scorrere perché voglio che vivere. È il mio carburante.

Lo scrittore

Lars Hee

La mia educazione

Nato a Copenaghen nel 1958. All’età di 5 anni, ruzzolavo sui marciapiedi e tra le macchine del centro città. In seguito la mia famiglia si é trasferiti a 15 miglia da Copenaghen, dove il luogo in rovina con i ciottoli è stato sostituito con una grande foresta e bellissimi laghi.

La mia capacità

Ho fatto tre viaggi di formazioni. La prima nel 1979, in Inghilterra. Il secondo nel 2009, a Firenze, Italia e il terzo nel 2011 a 22 città in giro per l’Italia. Sono uno scrittore autodidatta e ho fatto diversi studi umanistici, e quarant’anni nella  comunicazione industriali hanno sviluppo il mio modo di scrivere. Ho sempre avuto la necessità di imparare cose nuove, acquisire nuove conoscenze e scrivere delle mie esperienze.

Molti mi hanno da sempre incoragiato a coltivare questa mia capacità; poesia, filosofia, diari.

Anche mia sorella Tina Hee ha una capacità creativa che si esprime attraverso la sua arte. Clicca qui per vedere i bellissimi dipinti e sculture di Tina.

A Life of a Hee-man

"A Life of a Hee-man' is an honest account on one man's self-development over 50 years. A journey marked by an unrelenting struggle against the very Danish ‘who do you think you are’ attitude, against family succession, and sometimes himself. It is also a career adventure that begins in 1978 at the prestigious BMW in England, and ends in 1990 in the middle of the battle, for the most powerful position in Toyota Denmark. (In Danish and in English)

Recensioni (in English only)

A Life of a Hee-man

5/5

The reviewer: Donn Gurney is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin with degrees in English and Political Science. He has performed editing services for many of his racing clients as they developed books about their careers and experiences, including America’s first Formula One World Champion, Phil Hill, and Sir Stirling Moss, one of the most successful drivers of the 20th Century.

Review: Mr. Hee’s career as an automobile company executive is interesting, even though Mr. Hee is not Lee Iacocca, and flows well, better than the facets of his personal life away from the office and the intrigues of big business. Business executives write differently from other writers. This is probably a result of both the secretive nature of executive positions and the need to communicate quickly and concisely.
These writing talents are most appreciated in the business environment but perhaps not so much on the part of the casual reader. Mr. Hee leaves us wanting more detailed descriptions of the various characters swirling in and out of his world and it would seem that there are subplots that could lead to further development.

Selectivity is a necessity and here is where Mr. Hee could step back and review his book. Am I really telling who I am, and why I am worth reading about? Did this reviewer like the book? Yes, I did but it may be because I jumped in anxious to get a further insight into the business with which I have been involved for almost sixty years (mainly racing but also in automobile sales) and especially into the workings of the Toyota company. Some of that insight came through but I believe a lot was left out and that might well be the meat of another book. I don’t know how far Mr. Hee can go in that direction, as both business law and business practices may well prevent a real tells-all.
The real test is: will I keep the book (I usually pass review copies on to friends) and read it again? The answer is yes and yes. That puts it into the top category of books to be read.

Keep writing, Lars Hee, and, when you get to the proper time, give fiction a try as well, You have stories in your life yet to be told!

"Throughout my life I have read a lot, few books were rewarding, yours was. Really well written including your poetry as an extra spice."
Claus
"Finished your book, didn’t want it to end. You could make your life story as the basis of a blockbuster book; I can imagine Tom Cruise as you when the film is made. Go for it."
Jill
"Well written and you have certainly seen many aspects of life. I have put it in my pile of books along with a cutting about René Redzepi's Noma. I will find a suitable corner for the Danes!"
Sara
I was very impressed with the English. Certainly, the way in which you put words together made it an interesting and enjoyable read so I take my hat off to you.

La mia motivazione è sempre lì. La sfida è quando decido di scrivere con uno scopo preciso e le parole improvvisamente non fluiscono. In questo caso accetto, faccio uno schema, e scegli un momento migliore.

Ammiro autenticità, onestà e riverenza. Inoltre, persone che attento all’educazione e alla formazione per diventare individui inclusive e consapevoli. Di recente ammiro pure le persone con le buone maniere sui sociale media anche se non sone d’accordo con il mittente.

L’apprendimento di nuove abilità è molto gratificante. Mi fa sentire anche umile. Più so, più so di non sapere. Il processo di apprendimento mi dà la comprensione e la pazienza di ciò che sta accadendo intorno a me in questo mondo travagliato. Mi fa andare avanti.

Vivo nel momento e le mie idee affiorano col passare del tempo. I momenti che vivo, le persone che incontro, la nature umana, i miei viaggi e il pianeta terra.

Il pensiero negativo è più facile che del pensiero positivo. Il pensiero positivo non avviene istintivamente. La vita è più facile con un approccio positivo, ma è lavoro duro mantenere una mentalità positiva.

Attualmente, sto lavorando ad un libro di conversazione per bambini. Inoltre, sto pianificando un viaggio di formazione  in Irlanda, Isola di Man e Scozia.

Facebook è diventato un media sociale  narcisistico in cui milioni di persone cercano ogni giorno di sentirsi bene. “È un club per adulatori”, mi ha detto qualcuno. Il testo completo (inglese).

Facebook has slowly become a narcissistic echo chamber where millions of people daily search to feel ok. “It has become a club for sycophants”, someone said to me. Human beings are herd animals we know that well. A Human being’s self-perception, behavior, and assumption of what is right and wrong is socially conditioned. On Facebook, people rate each other around the clock using “likes”. It gives an unnatural and maybe even unhealthy dependence if we are not careful. On Facebook, we have many “friends”. However, is it not utopia? In the real world, I guess we all have somewhere between one and five real friends. With real friends, we do not need a Facebook profile to stay in touch. The sincere interest from our followers on Facebook as to whether you are in Harvey Nichols, at a Café, just walked your dog, bought a new car, is delighted about your son finishing A-level and anything else even more incredible, is absurd.

In addition to this, we are increasingly experiencing angry people who, without feeling responsible for what they post, use Facebook to act out their own inner frustrations. Hate, racism and even extremism apparently know no bounds in this forum. Even Fake News and conspiracy theories are today part of everyday life on Facebook. So why should I be on Facebook? If not for checking upon my popularity through “likes” OR for receiving tons of not very personal birthday greetings once a year OR for being in need of acting out frustrations OR for finding Fake News and conspiracy theories an important part of my “Newsfeed”?

August 2018 after 10 years, I deleted my Facebook account.

So now, I have become an outsider, and what a wonderful sensation it is. I do not feel an outsider however. At this very moment, I am sitting in my greenhouse. The English rose delights my senses with traces of lovely scents. The tomatoes are hanging in clusters waiting for a good mozzarella. A glass of well-chilled French Chardonnay on the small table awaits my sip. Bambi eats from the willow tree outside together with her beautiful lambs from the spring. They have not yet seen me. At the other end of the garden on an old tree trunk, an old Pheasant cock fraternizes with his chickens. The Spruce Warbler crackles in the tree and the Cuckoo sounds in the distance. It cannot be other people’s business which wine I like, which hotels I stay in, which restaurants I visit, what cars I own, how skilled my dog is, how amazing my children and grandchildren are, and when I stay in my cottage? Except, of course, for those close to me, but I communicate with them in other ways.

Nessuno può salvare il mondo, ma individualmente possiamo contribuire un po’. Io faccio donazioni a Danner (un’organizzazione danese contro la violenza) e alla Croce Rossa. Di tanto in tanto invio un testo a una rivista internazionale se lo trovo pertinente. Ad esempio, la seguente lettera su Time Magazine.

VOL. 191, NO. 4, 2018
I tuoi articoli sul primo anno in ufficio di Donald Trump sono azzeccati [Gen. 22]. A questo punto, penso che la maggior parte del mondo sia d’accordo sul fatto che Trump non sia l’uomo giusto per il presidente, anche se probabilmente è troppo disilluso per vedere lui stesso l’imbarazzo della situazione. Sono sicuro che la maggior parte delle persone vuole che lavorano per rendere grande l’America di nuovo, e lo sarà, ma è assolutamente necessario che qualcun altro prenda il timone – subito!
