Book: Four Thousand Weeks

Four Thousand Weeks: Time Management for MortalsFour Thousand Weeks: Time Management for Mortals by Oliver Burkeman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I want to give a copy of this book to everyone I know.

We are all in such a hurry to do more and more, to see more, to achieve more. Our to-do lists are endless, literally, and this book encourages us to truly look at that.

Some reviewers see the author as saying our lives are meaningless. What is beautifully expressed here is that the meaning of your life is completely and utterly yours. Your life may be — probably is! — cosmically insignificant. But the meaning of your life, of your time, is so much more intimate than that.

This book is about the intimacy of time, the very fabric of our life, and what we choose (consciously or not) to do with it. There is, eventually, a list of time management tips that fit in with the themes here, but you’ll get far more than that from this philosophical look at our relationship with time.
