18 Minutes by Peter Bregman

18 Minutes was recommended to me by my colleague in Brisbane, Steph. She said the book resonated with her so I gave it a try. I’m very glad that I did. The book helps create 5 things you want to focus on for the next 12 months. As easy as it sounds, I think very, very few of us do this. If you sign-up for Peter’s website (it’s free), you can download the 5 annual focus template for free. I keep my list on my desk so I can see it all times.

What I like most about the book is that Peter speaks from his heart – most of the stories he tells are stories that happened to him. That makes the book even more impactful.

Peter breaks the book into 4 parts:

1) Pause

2) What is this year about?

3) What is this day about?

4) What is this moment about?

I have book on my lap as I write this and I have about 50 pages earmarked for me to go back and review. I’ve already handed this book out to others and I think you would enjoy it too.
