My guest today is the award-winning writer Oliver Burkeman, award-winning feature writer for The Guardian and writes a popular weekly column on psychology called This Column Will Change Your Life. Today we are discussing his new book Four Thousand Weeks: Time Management for Mortals, an uplifting, engrossing and deeply realistic exploration of productivity and time management, rejecting the society’s obsession with 'getting everything done.’ It introduces readers to tools for constructing a meaningful life by embracing rather than denying their limitations. It’s a big dose of reality, and after reading the book you might think differently about your endless to-do-list with a slightly different perspective, I absolutely loved the book, recommending it to anyone who will listen, and loved chatting to Oliver all about it. I hope you enjoy this episode! x
