Description - A Minute to Think: Reclaim Creativity, Conquer Busyness, and Do Your Best Work by Juliet Funt

"You're going to want to share copies of this book with your overbooked friends and colleagues, but before you do, take some time to read it yourself. Funt's wisdom around making space is priceless." -Seth Godin, author of The Practice

Do you wish you could stop the mayhem of work and life and just take a minute Do you sense you could contribute more if there were a little more room in the day Does busyness deprive you and your burnt-out team of the oxygen your talents need to catch fire

Many have felt that way, yet taking a pause has seemed impossible-until now.

In A Minute to Think, Juliet Funt, a globally recognized warrior in the battle against busyness, provides a powerful guide that will give you the permission, framework, and specific direction you need to do the following:

  • Regain control of your overloaded, caffeinated, inbox-worshiping workday
  • Liberate yourself and your teams from burnout and busywork
  • Reclaim creativity and focus despite the chaos around you
  • Bring thoughtfulness into designing your next work norms
  • Tame the beast of email and escape the mire of meetings
  • Find your precious minute to think

You're not alone in your yearning for freedom from constant reactivity. The global workforce today is so fried that it belongs in the food court of a county fair. We're relentlessly behind the curve, dousing fires everywhere, and our 3 a.m. insomnia provides the only unscheduled thinking time of the day.

What we need reinserted in our lives is the missing element of white space-short periods of open, unscheduled time that, when recaptured, change the very nature of work. White space is the stepping back, the strategic pause, the oxygen that allows the sparks of our efforts to catch fire. White space has the power to radically-and simply-reinvent the way we approach work in this maxed-out, post-COVID 21st-century world.

With Juliet's memorable stories, easy-to-use tools, and razor-sharp instruction, she carves for us an escape route from the overwhelming amount of low-value tasks and the daily avalanche of e-mails, meetings, decks, and reports. Using research, client stories, and a relatable voice, Juliet shows all of us how to reclaim time for thinking and make room for what truly matters. Whether you are an individual trying to build a more sane and humane flow of daily work, a team that wants new levels of efficiency and effectiveness, or an entire organization changing your culture toward thoughtfulness, this book will lead you there.
