"Happy About" series

Two days ago I met with my friend Mitchell Levy and we had an interesting discussion about his latest project Happy About.

Happy About is a series of books with a positive spin on topics that stir emotion. Currently there are two titles – one on  Outsourcing and the other one on Trends for 2005. The books are edited and compiled by an expert with contributions from people that include movers and shakers of a particular industry. There are a few more titles planned for release in the next few months.

Mitchell and I have talked about this project several times. I am a great fan of Mitchell and I am, actually, VERY happy about this project for him.

While this is an innovative project (I have not seen or heard of anything like this before) the reason I like this project is the timing. We are in a world where the media is bombarding us with negative news. In fact, we have an overdose of negative news everyday. Want proof? Take a look at daily world news on google or any other news portal. Most of the days, the headlines are negative. We are starved of news with positive outlook and positive spin. Happy About is one such attempt and it deserves all the support it can get. I stopped reading the morning newspaper (in the morning) a few years ago when I realized that I was carrying a lot of baggage from the newspaper into work. We need to be aware of what’s happening but there should be a balance of intake (positive and negative) to keep ourselves in balance.

Here is wish for all of your happiness.
