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.
