Time Management for Mortals

By Oliver Burkeman

In Time Management for Mortals, Oliver Burkeman calls on us to eschew rote productivity, embrace our finitude, and surrender to the rhythms of life, so that we may “end our struggle with time”—and live with “more accomplishment, more success, and more time spent on what matters most.”  

Oliver Burkeman is the author of the New York Times bestseller Four Thousand Weeks: Time Management for Mortals, about embracing limitation and finally getting round to what counts. 

A new operating system for your mind.

Waking Up opens the door to a deeper understanding of yourself—and helps you live a more examined, fulfilling life.
