Too much to do and too little time? Award-winning writer Oliver Burkeman has explored precisely this. Four thousand weeks - if you live until the age of 80, is the sum of the time that we have on earth, in Burkeman's words this is 'absurdly, terrifyingly, insultingly short'.

Burkeman has shelved the need for top tips for productivity and will share how we can understand our time on this earth, how that understanding can positively impact how we live our lives for the better and the journey that Oliver experienced to come to this realisation.

    **As heard on Virgin Radio's Chris Evans Breakfast Show and Dr Chatterjee's #1 podcast Feel Better, Live More **

    Battling an overfilled inbox?
    Your ever-lengthening to-do lists?
    Struggling against distraction?
    What if you tried to stop doing everything, so you could finally get round to what counts?

    If you live to 80, you'll have barely more than four thousand weeks on earth. How will you decide how to spend them?

    Rejecting the futile modern obsession with 'getting everything done,' Four Thousand Weeks introduces readers to tools for constructing a meaningful life by embracing rather than denying their limitations.

    Drawing on the insights of both ancient and contemporary philosophers, psychologists, and spiritual teachers, Oliver Burkeman sets out to realign our relationship with time - and in doing so, to liberate us from its tyranny.

    Embrace your limits. Change your life. Make your four thousand weeks count.
