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 our best efforts to attain them are too often 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. 4 Seconds reveals

  • why listening—not arguing—is the best strategy for changing someone’s mind, 
  • why setting goals can actually harm performance,
  • how to use strategic disengagement to recover focus and willpower, and
  • 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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “This book is priceless, a book that could change your career, your marriage, your life.”

    Seth Godin, New York Times bestselling author of Tribes

  • “Peter Bregman is back, this time with an even faster way to find your focus and get back on track when life throws you off. You’ll learn how four seconds can be just enough time to activate better decision-making and short-circuit our habitual, counterproductive responses to seemingly intractable problems. I especially appreciate that Bregman doesn’t offer himself up as a guru with superhuman self-control: his honesty and empathy for his own failings make Four Seconds a refreshing read.”

    Daniel H. Pink, New York Times bestselling author of Drive

  • “Bregman’s insights are life changing, often surprising, and—most importantly—entirely practical. His strategies can be used every day, take very little of your time, and yet yield extraordinary results.”

    Heidi Grant Halvorson, associate director, Motivation Science Center, Columbia Business School,
