What if you stopped trying to do everything, so that you could finally get round to what counts? In this livestreamed event Oliver Burkeman will share a life-enhancing approach on how to make the most of your time in 2022, helping you to achieve your ‘New Year, new me’ goals.

We're obsessed with our lengthening to-do lists, our overfilled inboxes, the struggle against distraction, and the sense that our attention spans are shrivelling. Still, we rarely make the connection between our daily struggles with time and the ultimate time management problem: the question of how best to use our ridiculously brief time on the planet, which amounts on average to about four thousand weeks.

Oliver will discuss his Sunday Times bestseller Four Thousand Weeks, with Adrienne Herbert in an uplifting, engrossing and deeply realistic discussion of the challenge of our finite time on earth. Rejecting the futile modern obsession with 'getting everything done,' in this event Oliver introduces us to tools for constructing a meaningful life by embracing rather than denying our limitations.

Join us if you’re ready to realign your relationship with time and learn how to make your four thousand weeks count!
