"How can we be most effective and productive in a world that moves too fast and demands so much of us? In [this book], Peter Bregman shows that the answer is to pause for as few as four seconds--the length of a deep breath--to replace bad habits and reactions with more productive behaviors ... Bregman reveals some of our most common counter-productive tendencies and describes counter-intuitive strategies for acting more intentionally, including: why setting goals can actually harm your performance, how to use strategic disengagement to recover focus and willpower, why listening--not arguing--is the best strategy for changing someone's mind, how taking responsibility for someone else's failure can actually help you succeed"--
