    Special Edition: "The Hot Sauce Principle" Book Chat with Brandon

    Special Edition: "The Hot Sauce Principle" Book Chat with Brandon

    Today, I’m reflecting on this special episode of The Workplace Therapist Show where producer, Whitney, and I discuss why I wrote “The Hot Sauce Principle” and how we can apply it to our working relationships today. While it’s a fun episode, it’s a great reminder that life is not meant to be an endless sea of to-dos. It’s a reminder that, taking control of our schedules, projects and other forms of urgency in our lives is a form a self-care - because that means more time for doing other things we enjoy.

    Special Edition: Brandon Reads Chapter 1 of The Hot Sauce Principle

    To celebrate the upcoming release of my book, The Hot Sauce Principle, on Audible, I'm sharing the first chapter on today's episode of The Workplace Therapist Show.

    When the world shut down in March 2020, I was in the final editing stages of the book and felt a momentary sense of panic: had the book I spent all these months writing suddenly become obsolete? But still, two years after we first shut down, the urgency epidemic is as prevalent as ever.

    So, I invite you to revisit and review The Hot Sauce Principle: How to Live and Lead in a World Where Everything is Urgent All of the Time. 
    Dive into the first chapter now!
