downloadHappiness creates success; success does not create happiness. I had always assumed it was the other way around, but after reading Shawn Achor’s The Happiness Advantage, I realize that is not the case. In fact, there are many things we can do to increase our happiness, including being grateful for the things we have, being kind to others, exercising, and simply relaxing through meditation.

Although Shawn Achor doesn’t mention it directly, photo books, scrapbooks, and other photo memories also contribute to happiness, since these photos help us remember our past experiences and in doing so we appreciate the things we have. I think it is time to create another photo book.

My interests extend from preservation of traditional photographs to the production of photo books to the expected longevity of electronic image files. My long-term objective is to direct the development of technology that meets consumers needs for high-quality products.
