Four Thousand Weeks by Oliver Burkeman

  1. There is no end to work. The more work you do, the more work you create for yourself. If you are type-A, maybe allow yourself to be a bit less productive.
  2. Good time management systems prioritizes very few things. Do you have 18 “priorities”? Then you have no priorities. It’s easy to say no to the “undesirable” stuff, but you also have to say “no” to the “pretty good” stuff, which is the hard part.
  3. Our life is our attention. He cites Martin Heidegger’s assertion that “we don’t have time, but that we are time.” Our attention is our experience of life and is life. So we’re not managing external temporal units (e.g. minutes), but we are managing the quality of our attention.
