How to Make Time for What Counts

Oliver Burkeman’s Four Thousand Weeks changed people’s lives. Now he joins us live in London with a wise and practical plan for shedding our illusions and finding true fulfilment.

Oliver Burkeman’s global bestseller Four Thousand Weeks was that rarest of creatures: a self-help book that genuinely changed lives, inspiring thousands of us to rethink careers, relationships, and big decisions. In celebration of the launch of the sequel, Meditation for Mortals, Oliver joins How To Academy to take us on a liberating and invigorating journey towards a more meaningful life – a journey that begins not with fantasies of the ideal existence, but the reality in which we find ourselves.

How can we embrace our non-negotiable limitations? Or make good decisions when there’s always too much to do? How to shed the illusion that life will really begin as soon as we can ‘get on top of everything’? And what if purposeful productivity was often a matter of letting things happen, not making them happen?

Don’t miss this rare chance to hear from one of the wisest and most respected writers at work in the psychology and wellbeing field today, and to ask him your own questions about how to live a fuller and more enchanted life.
