The most important business/self-help book since EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE and THE ONE-MINUTE MANAGER.

How often do you get to the end of another long and frantic day and wonder why so many important things didn’t get finished? We’ve never worked so hard and felt so unproductive and unfulfilled.

18 MINUTES takes this challenge and turns it on its head. Peter Bregman, top HARVARD BUSINESS REVIEW columnist and global management consultant, shatters the myth of getting it all done by offering a clear and simple plan for getting the right things done.

He shows how the best way to fight distracting interruptions is to create productive ones ourselves, a practice that can be easily implemented in 18 minutes a day. The result is a simple yet comprehensive approach to managing your life a year, a day, and a moment at a time so that your life moves forward the way you want and at the pace you want.


Everybody is busy. With work, social commitments and family life, it's sometimes hard to see how you'll get everything done. But Peter Bregman claims to have the solution in time management. Rather than trying to get everything done, he advises you say no to distractions and get the important stuff done. A fascinating read with gems of advice
