Four Thousand Weeks: Time Management for Mortals

For the writer Oliver Burkeman, our orientation toward time is flawed. Despite the fact that most people live for only 4,000 weeks, many people regiment their hours, strategize their days, and predict and direct the course of their lives with little thought for their true end. Though it seems that this effortful planning is necessary, it actually catches people in a losing battle. Burkeman exposes this myth in his work Four Thousand Weeks—a provocative, surprisingly uplifting meditation on the nature of time and humanity, and how the two might learn to get along.
