A Literal Book Launch

literal book launch

As you may know, my book, The United States of Laughter, is now available in Print, Kindle, and Audiobook. To celebrate its release, I decided to launch the book out of a catapult. Why? Because why not?

Choosing to Have Fun

The process of launching a book is stressful: there are lots of logistics to figure out, tons of email and social media posts you have to create, and the anxiety of wondering if people will even like what you’ve written (based on the reviews so far, the answer is yes).

Many of your jobs are the same way. Deadlines, meetings, emails, and that one co-worker whose only job seems to add stress to your life can make work less than ideal.

The easiest way to combat the stress of daily work is simply to choose to have more fun. To find ways to do your work in a way that makes you smile, that helps you laugh, or at least keep you sane. In short, to sometimes say, “Why not?”

  • Why not listen to a comedy podcast on your way home from work so you can relieve stress and show up more present for your family?
  • Why not start your next meeting with a simple question to help build the relationships in the room?
  • Why not shoot your book out of a catapult so that you can say you did a literal book launch?

The reality is that job satisfaction is 100% your own responsibility. Why not choose to have more fun?
