Most important lesson Listen to your co‑workers. Don’t ignore mice since they could become elephants.

Encounters with serendipity When a co‑worker of mine – Jürgen Schleucher – was experimenting with recently published pulse sequence and magnetic field gradients, he noticed that half of the scans were empty. This lead to a general approach to coherence selection in NMR and later to theoretical investigations that could be solved with the help of the mathematician Sieveking.
