    176,95 kr.

    AN INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER"Provocative and appealing . . . Well worth your extremely limited time." -Barbara Spindel, The Wall Street JournalThere's a good reason why everyone has been talking about Oliver Burkeman's New York Times bestseller, Four Thousand Weeks. Nobody needs to be told there isn't enough time. Whether we're starting our own business, or trying to write a novel during our lunch break, or staring down a pile of deadlines as we're planning a vacation, we're obsessed with our lengthening to-do lists, overfilled inboxes, work-life balance, and ceaseless struggle against distraction. We're deluged with advice on becoming more productive and efficient and life hacks to optimize our days. But such techniques often end up making things worse. The sense of anxious hurry grows more intense, and yet the most meaningful parts of life seem to lie just beyond the horizon. Still, we rarely make the connection between our daily struggles with time and the ultimate time management problem: the challenge of how best to use our four thousand weeks, the average length of a human life.Drawing on the insights of both ancient and contemporary philosophers, psychologists, and spiritual teachers, Oliver Burkeman delivers an entertaining, humorous, practical, and ultimately profound guide to time and time management. Rejecting the futile modern obsession with "getting everything done," Four Thousand Weeks introduces readers to tools for constructing a meaningful life by embracing finitude, showing that many of the unhelpful ways we've come to think about time aren't inescapable, unchanging truths, but choices we've made as individuals and as a society-and that we can do things differently.

    AN INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER"e;Provocative and appealing . . . well worth your extremely limited time."e; -Barbara Spindel, The Wall Street JournalThe average human lifespan is absurdly, insultingly brief. Assuming you live to be eighty, you have just over four thousand weeks.Nobody needs telling there isn't enough time.

  • - Timemanagement for almindelige dødelige
    af Oliver Burkeman
    187,95 kr.

    Hvad ville der ske, hvis du holdt op med at prøve at nå det hele, så det endelig kunne lykkes dig at nå de ting, der virkelig betyder noget?Det moderne menneske er som besat af vores uendelige to do-lister og overfyldte indbakker, og vi kæmper en evindelig kamp mod distraktionerne og vores svindende koncentrations- evne. Alligevel formår vi sjældent at se sammenhængen mellem de daglige kampe mod tiden og det ultimative time management-problem: spørgsmålet om, hvordan vi bedst muligt skal spendere vores absurd korte tid på planeten – en tid, som i gennemsnit beløber sig til omkring fire tusind uger. Fire tusind uger er en opløft ende, fængslende og dybt realistisk udforskning af netop denne problemstilling. Den afviser vores nyttesløse besættelse af at nå det hele og introducerer os i stedet til red- skaber, der kan bruges til at konstruere et meningsfuldt liv ved at omfavne snarere end benægte dets begrænsninger. Den viser os, at den måde, vi forholder os til tiden på, ikke er uundgåelig og uforanderlig, men resultatet af et valg vi har truffet, både som individer og som samfund. Og at alle disse åbenbaringer kan forandre vores verdenssyn. Med afsæt i lærdom fra gamle og nye filosoffer, psykologer og åndelige vejledere sætter Oliver Burkeman sig med Fire tusind uger for at omstrukturere vores forhold til tid – og for at frigøre os fra dens tyranni.

    Your happier, freer and more fulfilling life starts today!Meditations for Mortals takes us on a liberating journey towards a more meaningful life - one that begins not with fantasies of the ideal existence, but with the reality in which we actually find ourselves. Designed as a four-week 'retreat of the mind', it offers daily wisdom, solace and inspiration to aid a saner, freer, and more enchantment-filled way of living. Addressing fundamental questions about how to live, Oliver Burkeman proposes a powerful new guiding philosophy of 'imperfectionism'. How can we embrace our limitations? Or make good decisions when there's always too much to do? What if being truly productive means letting things happen, not making them happen?Reflecting on philosophy, literature, psychology, religion and self-help, Burkeman explores practical tools and shifts in perspective. The result is a bracing challenge to much familiar advice, and a profound yet entertaining crash course in living more fully.'Full of wisdom and comfort...a really important book about embracing truth and reality which will help a lot of people leave their fantasies and dive into real life' CHRIS VAN TULLEKEN, author of Ultra-Processed People'Oliver Burkeman has a way of giving you the most unexpected productivity advice exactly when you need it' MARK MANSON, author of The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck'Meditations for Mortals offers a practical path toward personal transformation ... A must-read' CAL NEWPORT, author of Slow Productivity

    From the international bestselling author of Four Thousand Weeks comes a four-week journey to embracing your limitations, thriving in an age of bewilderment, and finally making time for what counts. Four Thousand Weeks, Oliver Burkeman's breakout international bestseller, touched the lives of hundreds of thousands of readers. Inspired and moved by Burkeman's investigation into how to live unblinkingly in the face of our limited time on earth, some of them changed their lives: they made big decisions to rethink careers, relationships, priorities, and misguided assumptions about productivity. In Meditations for Mortals, Burkeman brings the themes and questions at the heart of Four Thousand Weeks - time, mortality, imperfection, productivity, and how to live fully and deeply even when things are most challenging - into the heart of our daily lives. How do we embrace the reality of our finiteness? How do we make decisions and act with conviction when there is always too much to do and failure is inevitable? How do we find a deeper sense of purpose when we realise that life is not a problem to be solved? How does care for others make us more free?Comprised of four weeks of extended reflections on inspiring quotations - drawn from philosophy, religion, literature, psychology, and self-help - Burkeman's latest is the perfect companion during a time of turbulence and pervasive anxiety: a source of solace and enlightenment, inspiration and insight, and humour and provocation. The result is a winking challenge to the usual self-help platitudes - a surprising and entertaining crash course in living meaningfully. Praise for Four Thousand Weeks:'Wonderful' The Times'Perfectly pitched somewhere between practical self-help and philosophical quest' Observer'Wise' Mail on Sunday'Full of such sage and sane advice, delivered with dry wit and a benevolent tone' Guardian

    From the author of the New York Times-bestselling Four Thousand Weeks, a totally original approach to self-help: success through failure, calm through embracing anxiety.Self-help books don't seem to work. Few of the many advantages of modern life seem capable of lifting our collective mood. Wealth-even if you can get it-doesn't necessarily lead to happiness. Romance, family life, and work often bring as much stress as joy. We can't even agree on what "happiness" means. So are we engaged in a futile pursuit? Or are we just going about it the wrong way? Looking both east and west, in bulletins from the past and from far afield, Oliver Burkeman introduces us to an unusual group of people who share a single, surprising way of thinking about life. Whether experimental psychologists, terrorism experts, Buddhists, hardheaded business consultants, Greek philosophers, or modern-day gurus, they argue that in our personal lives, and in society at large, it's our constant effort to be happy that is making us miserable. And that there is an alternative path to happiness and success that involves embracing failure, pessimism, insecurity, and uncertainty-the very things we spend our lives trying to avoid. Thought-provoking, counterintuitive, and ultimately uplifting, The Antidote is the intelligent person's guide to understanding the much-misunderstood idea of happiness.

    La vida es corta. ¿Qué piensas hacer al respecto?La vida media del ser humano es ridículamente breve: si llegas a los 80 años, habrás vivido unas 4000 semanas. Si tienes 40, solo te quedan 2000. Sin embargo, estamos obsesionados con interminables listas de tareas pendientes, buzones saturados de correos sin leer y la sensación de que nunca llegamos a todo. La mayoría de los consejos sobre gestión de tiempo fomentan la idea de que un día podremos 'hacerlo todo' y convertirnos en los dueños de nuestro tiempo, totalmente optimizados y emocionalmente invencibles. Nada hay más falso que eso. Basándose en las ideas de filósofos, psicólogos y maestros espirituales antiguos y contemporáneos, Oliver Burkeman ofrece una guía entretenida y práctica para construir una vida con sentido, unos objetivos alcanzables y una apuesta por todo aquello que realmente vale la pena.'Un libro admirablemente honesto. Cuatro mil semanas es una revisión de la realidad muy necesaria sobre las suposiciones absurdas de nuestra cultura en torno al trabajo, la productividad y la vida con sentido.' MARK MANSON, autor de El sutil arte de que (casi todo) te importa una mierda'Todos sabemos que nuestro tiempo es limitado. Lo que no sabemos es que nuestro control sobre ese tiempo también es limitado. Este profundo (y a menudo hilarante) libro nos invita a replantear el culto hacia la eficiencia y reconfigurar nuestra vida en torno a lo que realmente importa.' DANIEL H. PINK, autor de La sorprendente verdad sobre qué nos motivaENGLISH DESCRIPTIONThe average life of the human being isridiculously short: if you reach 80 years, you will have lived about 4000weeks. If you're 40, you only have 2,000 left. Yet, we're obsessed with endlessto-do lists, inboxes overflowing with unread emails, and the feeling that wenever get everything done. Most time management advice promotes the idea thatone day we can "do it all" and become masters of our time, fullyoptimized and emotionally invincible. There's nothing falser than that. Drawingon the insights of ancient and contemporary philosophers, psychologists, andspiritual teachers, Oliver Burkeman offers an entertaining and practical guideto building a life of meaning, attainable goals, and a commitment to all thatis truly worthwhile. "An admirably honest book. Four ThousandWeeks is a much-needed reality check on our culture's absurd assumptions aboutwork, productivity, and meaningful living." MARK MANSON, author of TheSubtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck"We all know that our time is limited. What wedon't know is that our control over that time is also limited. This insightful(and often hilarious) book invites us to rethink the cult of efficiency andreshape our lives around what really matters." DANIEL H. PINK, authorof Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us Life is short. What do you plan to do about it?Leer un fragmento
