Thought Management 101: Wake Up and Be Happy by Gene Teglovic

One of my resolutions for 2011 is to read at least two books a month — one for learning and one for fun.  Thought Management 101:  Wake Up and Be Happy was the perfect place to start.   Teglovic shares his perspective on thought management in a conversational tone, creating a book that is simultaneously entertaining and enlightening.

He describes levels of existence as channels on a television:  channel one is the physical body; channel two is the psychosocial/emotional/intellectual self; channel three is the silent observer; and then there is channel four.  He doesn’t name channel four other than to suggest it is “God, Spirit, Energy, Universe, etc.” because “it is too immense, too omniscient, too magnificent to describe.”

He uses simple metaphors to illustrate his points and uses a children’s song as a memory device to guide readers along the path to happiness.  He provides questions to spark thought observation and a simple mediation practice to help you observe your thoughts.

In a scant 107 pages, this software professional synthesized his years of life experience and dealings with psychologists, licensed professionals, and holy persons and manages to teach readers what thoughts are, where they come from, and how to manage them to create happiness.

The book is available in paperback or e-book form at and has a Facebook page at where fans can get a coupon code worth 50% off the purchase price from the web site.

If you are ready to “step outside your ingrained thought boundaries…and “open your mind,” I think you will enjoy this book.  “You’d be surprised what might come in.”
