Overview

Many time management and productivity experts promise a life of peace and contentment that can come after using their techniques to do more, more efficiently, with better planned days, weeks, and years. But allegedly time-saving technology and time management rarely deliver on this promise, since the time they free up is only filled with yet more productivity, more demands, and more stress.

Oliver Burkeman is a journalist for The Guardian and author of the popular column This Column Will Change Your Life. In this book, Burkeman offers a better way of dealing with the time-induced stress of the modern world by embracing the limits of our finite lives.

Favorite Quote

"The average human lifespan is absurdly, terrifyingly, insultingly short. But that isn't a reason for unremitting despair, or for living in an anxiety-fueled panic about making the most of your limited time. It's a cause for relief."
