My first exposure to the incredibly talented Juliet Funt was during a conference in Vancouver many moons ago. She completely captivated a room of more than a thousand people with her ability to combine wit, empathy and humor in a very unique way. This book is a thousand times better, because you get that wonderful combination in chapter after chapter.
She delivers super-easy-to implement suggestions (with some subtle sides of snark and brilliant pop culture references) to de-clutter your mind and Outlook calendar so that you can be more productive and less overwhelmed. I'm pretty sure my coworkers are tired of me telling them "YOU HAVE TO READ THIS BOOK!"

In this important book, Juliet reminds us that, "taking a minute to think is a formidable source of professional power." The strategic pause is something we all need. As a small business owner I can't hear that advice enough. This is funny, engaging, conversational, practical, and offers tools for working smarter and liberating ourselves from the usual mental hamster wheel we all seem to be on these days. Thank you for A Minute to Think!
We all live busy lives. Our work is plagued with issues to solve and at times it feels we don’t have enough time to think. Juliet Funt articulates better than any other author why it so important to leverage the strategic pause and how to be mindful of them. I have been successful not because of how busy I was at work, but more about how I leveraged the strategic pauses in my life to plan , strategize, and think about how my teams can do things better. Juliet shows you how to take advantage of this to better yourself and your team. Fabulous piece of work from an author that brings it down to earth with her humor and her story telling ability.
What an exceptional piece of work. Chapter after chapter, Juliet provides the science, the story, and the practical strategies to get off the hamster wheel of a hurried life. As a workaholic, this book was exactly the impetus I needed to stop. Not all at once but by one small white space at a time. I’m grateful that I found and read this book.
I was so excited for the release of this book as I have followed the author, Juliet Funt, for several years listening and learning from her insightful wisdom. She writes in a way that is instantly relatable to everyone and is truly passionate about freeing people to do their best work. I love how she describes the current situation for so many people early on in the book, "Our time is under attack and the global workforce is so fried it belongs in the food court of a county fair." Her book is full of nuggets of truth that can be implemented immediately. I highly recommend this book.
Juliet’s expertise shines through in “A Minute to Think,” and forces the reader to think differently about how they value their most precious commodity…time. Chock full of practical wisdom, interesting anecdotes, and fascinating research — I enjoyed how she put this book together, it’s a great read.
