#4312 In this book, Peter Bregman, author of the Wall Street Journal bestseller 18 Minutes, offers strategies to replace energy-wasting, counter-productive habits that commonly derail us with truly effective ones.
The things we want most – peace of mind, fulfilling relationships, to do well at work – are surprisingly straightforward to realize. But too often our best efforts to attain them are built on destructive habits that sabotage us. In 4 Seconds, Peter Bregman shows us how to replace negative patterns with energy-boosting and productive behaviors.
To thrive in our fast-paced world, all it takes is to pause for as few as four seconds – the length of a deep breath – allowing us to make intentional and tactical choices that lead to better outcomes. The book reveals:
- Why listening, not arguing, is the best strategy for changing someones mind
- Why setting goals can actually harm performance
- How to use strategic disengagement to recover focus and willpower
- How taking responsibility for someone else’s failure can actually help your team
Practical and insightful, 4 Seconds provides simple solutions to create the results you want without the stress.
