New York Post names “18 Minutes” a notable career book of 2011 (Virginia Backaitis)
Drawing on his popular blog for the Harvard Business Review, Bregman lays out a strategy for blocking out distractions and getting things done. The title refers to his daily prescription for time management: five minutes of computer-free time in the morning to map goals for the day, one-minute breaks each hour to refocus and five minutes at the day’s end to check in with yourself and tie up loose ends. If there’s anyone on your gift list who complains about always being busy but never getting anything done, this may be the ticket.
Peter Bregman is CEO of Bregman Partners, a company that strengthens leadership in people and in organizations through programs (including the Bregman Leadership Intensive), coaching, and as a consultant to CEOs and their leadership teams. Best-selling author of 18 Minutes, his most recent book is Four Seconds. To receive an email when he posts, click here.
