My main project (happiness at work) has come to the attention of the media. It’s actually a little too soon for my taste, I’d have liked to have more results before we “go public” but hey, it’s nice that people are interested.
And today I was live on national TV (on Good morning Denmark), being interviewed by Michael Meyerheim. I’ll try to convert it to a digital format and post it on the site.
The whole process was interesting to try. I talked to one of their journalists yesterday morning, and apparantely what I said met with approval, because they invited me to do the interview today. I arrived at seven in the morning in their studio which is set in the middle of Copenhagens central train station. I had a chance to sit and get really nervous for a while, then I was fitted with a wireless mike and sent to the makeup lady.
Shortly after that the interviewer came, and we talked a little about the questions he was going to ask. And then it was straight into it. I’ve seen the interview, and I think it went well. I come across as happy, intense and fast-talking, but that’s hardly anything new – that’s what I’m always like.
Being interviewed was actually quite a kick. You need to be quite focused, and you need to be fully present – in essence we’re talking about a 100% genuine flow experience. Now, 2 hours later I’m still riding the high from it. I’m not sure I’ll be able to calm down enough to do any real work today. But it’s worth it.
And I’ve already gotten two mails from people who saw the interview and are interested in the project. Yeah!
