Product description

Review

“This book is more than a first-rate guide to getting more and better work done. It is a powerful meditation on the false lure of busyness and the sustaining power of the pause. A Minute to Think is essential reading for maddening times.” -- Daniel H. Pink, author of When, Drive, and To Sell Is Human

“I absolutely loved
A Minute to Think. It’s one of the most captivating and relevant approaches to solving busyness that I’ve read. Juliet’s energetic style and practical insights play a pivotal role as we long to pause yet be more productive and creative in this next decade of hybrid working.” -- Angela Ahrendts, DBE, former SVP of Apple Retail and CEO of Burberry

“Juliet Funt makes a compelling case for a tactic that’s both critically important and distressingly overlooked: the strategic pause. If you regularly feel overwhelmed by your work, read this book!” --
Cal Newport, New York Times bestselling author of A World Without Email and Deep Work

“This smart, funny business book is brimming with actionable tools. It’s certain to make any team stronger.” --
Patrick Lencioni, president, The Table Group; New York Times bestselling author of The Five Dysfunctions of a Team

“My decades of experience in the productivity arena have taught me you don’t need more time—you need more room. Room to be creative, to be strategic, and simply to be present in whatever you’re doing. Juliet provides an elegant and easily followed manual of how to get us there. Bravo.” --
David Allen, international bestselling author of Getting Things Done

"Rarely has an author produced something so immediately relevant and profoundly important to balancing my life and to my daily practices at work. Reading 
A Minute to Think is an investment in getting the most out of our most precious commodity–time. Bravo." -- Nicholas Drake, Vice President Global Marketing at Google

“Like many, I spent most of my life convinced that busy was the same as productive. That’s how I fed my self-esteem for years. But reading
A Minute to Think, I have finally and fully understood what Aristotle said: “The quality of life is determined by its activities.” -- Bradley J. Preber, CEO, Grant Thornton LLP

"So many of us are consumed, buried, busy and overwhelmed. 
A Minute to Think will set us free, delivering an immediately shift towards doing better work every day. This book is a necessary and profound advancement tool for the modern day workplace culture."
--
Rory Vaden, New York Times bestselling author of Take the Stairs and creator of the viral TEDx talk “How to Multiply Time”

"Juliet Funt is a master of time management and she recognizes the need to attack busyness with a vengeance. I’m excited for you to explore her book on this topic so you can reevaluate how you think, work, and behave to focus on the most important things that only you can do." --
Craig Groeschel, New York Times bestselling author and Pastor of Life.Church

“I wish I wrote this book.” --
John Cleese, comedy legend --This text refers to the paperback edition.
