This week’s Teaser is from The Power of a Half Hour by Tommy Barnett.
Mein heutiger „Teaser“ stammt aus The Power of a Half Hour von Tommy Barnett.

Many people think of a half hour as a minimal or meaningless gap in time, downtime to catch your breath between periods of major effort. But the truth is your half hours can determine the difference between success and failure.

– Introduction, The Power of a Half Hour by Tommy Barnett

The blurb says:
Der Klappentext lautet:

TThe Power of a Half Hoururn your fleeting minutes into defining moments. What can you do in 30 minutes? Have lunch? Watch television? Check Facebook?

How about change your life?

Why do some people achieve far more than others? We all get the same 24 hours in a day, yet a special few seem to have superhuman abilities when it comes to accomplishing great things in life.

Tommy Barnett, a proven master at “getting things done,” says the key to maximizing your productivity is to make use of small, manageable moments in your day—just 30 minutes at a time.  In this remarkably practical book, Tommy shows how to begin a whole new life of fruitfulness. You’ll see immediate results in all areas of your life, including your purpose and values, personal goals, faith, character and attitude, dreams, career, relationships, marriage and family, and church involvement and ministry.

Why not change time from being your worst enemy to your everlasting friend? It all starts with the amazing things you can do in only a half hour.  Through inspiring stories and biblical principles, discover how your downtime can have a major upside.

Get going—you don’t have a minute to lose!


7 Gedanken zu „Teaser Tuesday – 18/02/14

    • Absolutely! I feel really challenged by this book. When I have a half hour to spare I often think it’s not worth starting anything and then end up killing time rather than making good use of the half hour.

    • It is in a way but more so about making use of those smaller chunks of time that one would otherwise not use productively because it’s „just a half hour to kill“…
