Four thousand weeks.
That’s how long we live if we’re lucky enough to celebrate our 80th birthday.
We rarely think of our lifespan in terms of weeks. When we do, it seems painfully short.
And that’s the point that Oliver Burkeman, author of Four Thousand Weeks, wants to drive home.
Rather than fight a losing battle against time, Oliver recommends that we embrace our cosmic insignificance, redefine what a meaningful life looks like, choose what to fail at, burn bridges, and ruthlessly limit our works-in-progress.
If the financial independence movement is a rebellion against trading the rest of our limited time for pay, Oliver’s unconventional view on time management is a rebellion against trading the rest of our limited time for an illusion of productivity.
