  2. Oliver Burkeman | Four Thousand Weeks: Time and How to Use It | Talks at Google

    Oliver Burkeman discuss his book “Four Thousand Weeks: Time and How to Use It”. We’re obsessed with our lengthening to-do lists, our overfilled inboxes, the struggle against distraction, and the sense that our attention spans are shrivelling. Still, we rarely make the connection between our daily struggles with time and the ultimate time management problem: the question of how best to use our ridiculously brief time on the planet, which amounts on average to about four thousand weeks. Drawing on the insights from both ancient and contemporary philosophers, psychologists, and spiritual teachers, Oliver Burkeman sets out to realign our relationship with time and to liberate us from its tyranny.

    Oliver Burkeman is the author of The Antidote: Happiness for People Who Can’t Stand Positive Thinking, and for many years wrote a popular weekly column on psychology for The Guardian called This Column Will Change Your Life. His work has also appeared in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Psychologies and New Philosopher. He has a devoted following for his writing on productivity, mortality, the power of limits, and building a meaningful life in an age of bewilderment.

  4. Four Thousand Weeks: Time management for mortals — Oliver Burkeman (York Ideas)

    The average human lifespan is absurdly, insultingly brief. Assuming you live to be 80, you have just over 4,000 weeks.

    Nobody needs telling there isn’t enough time. We’re obsessed with our lengthening to-do lists, our overfilled inboxes, work-life balance, and the ceaseless struggle against distraction; and we’re deluged with advice on becoming more productive and efficient, and “life hacks” to optimise our days. But such techniques often end up making things worse.

    Drawing on the insights of both ancient and contemporary philosophers, psychologists, and spiritual teachers, award-winning Guardian columnist Oliver Burkeman delivers an entertaining, humorous, practical, and ultimately profound guide to time and time management.

    Join Oliver, the author of Four Thousand Weeks: Time and How to Use It, as he addresses the challenge of how best to use our 4,000 weeks.

  5. Stephen Fry & Friends on the Life of Christopher Hitchens

    In this historic event, Stephen Fry, Richard Dawkins, Salman Rushdie, Sean Penn and other friends of Christopher Hitchens came together to celebrate the life and work of this great writer, iconoclast and debater. Fry was joined on stage at the Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall by Richard Dawkins and the two discussed Hitch’s unflinching commitment to the truth.

    Hollywood actor Sean Penn was beamed in from LA by Google+ and, between cigarette puffs, read from Hitch’s acclaimed work, The Trial of Henry Kissinger. Five friends of Hitch spoke via satellite in New York: satirist Christopher Buckley and editor Lewis Lapham mused on Hitch’s prowess as a journalist. ‘Like a pot of gold’, said Lapham. Martin Amis, Salman Rushdie and James Fenton delighted the audience with stories of Hitchens as a young man. Rushdie drew roars of laughter when he recounted a word game invented by Amis and Hitchens where the word ‘love’ is replaced with ‘hysterical sex’. Particular favourites included Hysterical Sex in the Time of Cholera and Hysterical Sex Is All You Need.

    Watching the event with Hitch at his bedside in Texas, Hitch’s wife Carol and novelist Ian McEwan provided an email commentary. ‘His Rolls Royce mind is still purring beautifully’, typed McEwan.

    The event was watched live by 2500 at the venue, and …
