Meet the powerful guide that will help you regain control in your overloaded, caffeinated, inbox-worshiping work day. An efficiency expert explains how to liberate your talent, reduce waste, and help teams do more meaningful work by incorporating strategic pauses--what she calls white space--into your workdays and personal life.

The American workforce is burnt out--ever busy--constantly on call. Creativity and innovation wither before the false god of busyness, and family time is constantly interrupted by the siren call of our smart phones. We're relentlessly behind the curve, dousing fires everywhere and our 2 a.m. insomnia provides the only unscheduled thinking time of the day.

But activity and productivity are not the same, and confusing them is costing companies millions of dollars annually in wasted time.

What we need is white space--short periods of open, unscheduled time that, when inserted back into our days, 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.

It has the power to radically--and simply--reinvent the way we approach work in this maxed-out twenty-first-century world.

Finding time seems impossible as we are too busy to become less busy. But as Juliet Funt reveals, it's not. In A Minute to Think, she redefines productivity using repeatable frameworks and easily accessible techniques. White space carves for us an escape route from low-value tasks and the daily avalanche of e-mails, meetings, decks, and reports. Using research, client stories and a lighthearted voice, Funt shows readers how to reclaim time for thinking and make room for what matters.

A Minute to Think includes 15 black-and-white illustrations.
