CBC interviewed Neil Pasricha today – the man behind the Book of Awesome and the http://1000awesomethings.com/ website.
The “awesome” things are simple, free quirky little joys we can encounter every day (e.g., bakery air, putting on warm undies right from the dryer, picking up a Q and U at the same time in Scrabble). Sure, it might seem corny. But whatever, we need stuff like this to balance out the endless barrage of bad news in the world.
But more to the point, it encourages us to be (optimistic) observers. And grateful.
So, how can you lose? Awesome.
