Keeping Your Temper in Check

Keeping Your Temper in Check

tip of the day

I’m sure that many food truck owners and employees can agree that when you have too much to do and not enough time to do it, it’s easy to disappoint yourself and others, forget to follow through, and lose your temper.

Managing your time better, learning to say “no,” and resisting the temptation to over multitask (yeah I know multitasking is tough to get away from during a rush) are all good long-term solutions.

But what can you do now to stop the fuse from even getting close to being lit? Try this: Every hour, take one minute to take a deep breath and ask yourself if in the past hour you’ve been the kind of person you want to be.

Have you been a good boss or employee? Then recommit to who you are going to be in the next hour. Sometimes it only takes a small interruption to help you regain control. Why not take the time to prevent losing your cool before it happens?



Richard is an architect by degree (Lawrence Technological University, Southfield, Michigan) who began his career in real estate development and architectural planning. In September of 2010 he created Mobile Cuisine Magazine to fill an information void he found when he began researching how to start a mobile hotdog cart in Chicago. Richard found that there was no central repository of mobile street food information anywhere on the internet, and with that, the idea for MCM was born.
