In Oliver Burkeman’s Four Thousand Weeks: Time Management for Mortals, the self-professed “productivity nerd” offers a manual for those looking to optimize their time management. However, this isn’t a guide filled with “life hacks” or shortcuts; Burkeman takes a much more philosophical approach, challenging readers to consider what they would really like to do with their time if they live to 80, the average human lifespan, which translates to roughly 4,000 weeks. Filled with levity and gentle wisdom, Burkeman’s book helps shift readers’ focus and values to encourage us to make the most of our time alive.
