A Conversation with Juliet Funt

Sales Enablement Podcast with Andy Paul

Juliet Funt is the Founder and CEO of the Juliet Funt Group, as well as the author of the book A Minute to Think. Something lacking in today's busy world is white space. This is time with no assignment and has been proven to boost creativity for you to do your best work. This is in contrast to the culture of busyness which fills up every available moment with tasks that may or may not even be relevant. White space should ultimately be brought home for you to be present with joy, hobbies, family, and children so you do not miss out on your life.HIGHLIGHTS White space allows for thinking time and the flow of creativity Busyness and wellness: Change the culture through dialogue Time thieves are attractive but they turn drive into overdrive Email diet: Touch it less or compose it better QUOTESWhite space is time with no assignment - Juliet: "In white space, as we define it, we call it time with no assignment. This is you're a dog in the park without a leash and your mind can run, thinking about anything at once, unencumbered by rules, unencumbered by instruction. It's what we're missing. We never have that freedom." Busyness is ingrained in culture - Juliet: "The salespeople sometimes are in their own personal habitual groove of creating that activity, but it also has to do with the rewards and rules that they live within. So if you have to calendar 20 meetings a week, you're going to find 7 low-value meetings to throw in to make your 20 even though you know that it would be better to focus on the 13 high-value meetings. But you're not allowed to." An email diet opens up your time for deep work - Juliet: "That moment where you go “Okay, I was going to check email and now I'm not’. And what you learn in that second is that you have no idea what to do other than that. So you're forced into this moment of ‘Wow. What else could be next?’ And you look at your calendar and you realize you have 20 minutes til the next call and then it gets weird. And then you start realizing I had no idea how to busy myself if I don't fill with a digital sip."Find out more about Juliet and take the Busyness Test in the links below: LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/julietfunt/ Website: https://www.julietfunt.com/ More on Andy:Connect on LinkedInGet Andy's new book "Sell Without Selling Out" on AmazonLearn more at AndyPaul.comSponsored by:Revenue.io | Unlock exponential growth with an AI-powered RevOps platform | Revenue.ioScratchpad | The fastest way to update Salesforce, take sales notes, and stay on top of to-dos | Scratchpad.comBlueboard | World’s leading experiential rewards & recognition platform | Blueboard.comExplore the Revenue.io Podcast Universe:Sales Enablement PodcastRevOps PodcastSelling with Purpose Podcast

Juliet Funt, Author and Tough-Love Advisor to Fortune 500 Executives on Conquering Busyness and Doing Your Best Work

Build a Winning Team with Tim Schurrer

Most of us work at 100 mph. We have endless task lists, back-to-back-to-back-to-back meetings, we eat lunch at our desks so we can respond to a couple more emails and Slack messages, we hardly take a break to go to the bathroom or even to get a drink, we’re constantly behind … and … we’re exhausted. This pace is unsustainable and I think we all know it. When I read Juliet Funt’s book "A Minute to Think" the first thing I did was exhale. She gave me permission to think differently about how I show up at work and at home. What would it look like to operate in a more sane and humane way each and every day?  What would it look like to build in some white space into our days?  And what would that do to the quality of our work, our interactions with our coworkers, and our families? If we want to build a winning team, we need to conquer busyness so that we can do our best work.

A Minute to Think with Juliet Funt

Entrepreneurs on Fire

Juliet Funt is the author of A Minute to Think and CEO of the Juliet Funt Group. She is an evangelist for freeing the potential of companies by unburdening them from busywork. Top 3 Value Bombs: 1. In building fire, you can have great dry wood, crumply newspaper, but if you skip one critical ingredient, your fire will never ignite. That ingredient is space between combustibles, takes a little spark and draws into fire. It’s the same for our work. 2. Busyness tricks people into thinking that they are productive when they are only active. That confusion between activity and productivity cost companies millions of dollars. 3. When you want to clock out at the end of the day, trap yourself in a promise. Say out loud that you’re done for the day. Saying it out loud creates verbal accountability. It’ll be harder to go back some minutes later and work again when you have stated work is over.
