Do you wish you could stop the mayhem of work and life for a brief moment 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 of the oxygen your talents need to really catch fire? Many people feel this way, but taking a restorative pause has felt 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:
You’re not alone in your yearning for freedom from constant reactivity. The global workforce today is so fried that it belongs in a food booth 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 twenty-first century world.
With her memorable stories, easy-to-use tools, and razor-sharp instruction, Funt carves for us an escape route from the overwhelm of low-value tasks and the daily avalanche of e-mails, meetings, decks, and reports. Using research, client stories, and a relatable voice, Funt shows all of us how to reclaim time for thinking and make room for what truly matters.
Whether you’re 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.
