This week, Jonesy and Ashto learn an unconventional approach to making the best use of their time from Four Thousand Weeks. In contrast to other time management or productivity books, this book debunks the idea of time management as we know it. Productivity is a trap. Nobody in the history of humanity has ever achieved the ideal work-life balance. You certainly won’t get there by simply joining the ‘5 am club’ or copying ‘The 6 Things Successful People Do Before 7 am’ that you see on Instagram.
In this book, Oliver Burkeman draws on the insights of ancient and contemporary philosophers, psychologists and spiritual teachers to offer a profound guide to time management. Four Thousand Weeks teaches us the tools for building a meaningful life by embracing finitude. So let’s start by admitting defeat: you’ll never have everything under control. But you know what? That’s excellent news!
