Description
"A lively philosophical guide to time and time management, setting aside superficial efficiency solutions in favor of reckoning with and finding joy in the finitude of human life"--,Provided by publisher.
Description
We are obsessed with our lengthening to-do lists, work-life balance, and the ceaseless battle against distraction. We are deluged with advice on becoming more productive, learn hacks to optimize our days. We rarely make the connection between our daily struggles and the ultimate time management problem: the challenge of how best to use the time we are given. Burkeman rejects the futile modern fixation on "getting everything done" and instead introduces readers to tools for constructing a meaningful life by embracing finitude. He shows how many of the unhelpful ways we have come to think about time are actually choices we have made-- and that we could do things differently. -- adapted from jacket
