A MINUTE TO THINK: CONQUER BUSYNESS, RECLAIM CREATIVITY AND DO YOUR BEST WORK

 

Do you wish to briefly stop work and life's mayhem and take a minute? Do you sense you could contribute more if there were more room in the day? Many people feel this way, but taking a restorative pause has been impossible.

You're not alone in yearning for freedom from constant reactivity. We're relentlessly behind the curve, attending to crises everywhere, and our 3 a.m. insomnia provides the day's only unscheduled time to think. What we need again 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, and the oxygen that allows the sparks of our efforts to catch fire. It's yours to reclaim, and this program will show you how.

In this lively program based on Juliet Funt's latest book, A Minute to Think, you'll receive the permission, framework, and direction to regain control of your overloaded, caffeinated, inbox-worshiping workday and find a precious minute. Using memorable stories and razor-sharp instruction, Juliet will help you rediscover the meaning of your work, the way out of burnout, and the liberty of your time.
