For 14 years, our guest for this week’s The 1% Podcast wrote a weekly piece for The Guardian entitled: “This Column Will Change Your Life”.
If that doesn’t pique your interest, Oliver Burkeman has gone on to write three books to assist us with some of life’s biggest challenges. ‘Help! How to Become Slightly Happier and Get a Bit More Done’ was published in 2011, with ‘The Antidote: Happiness for People Who Can’t Stand Positive Thinking’ published in 2012.
It’s Oliver’s third book though, entitled: ‘Four Thousand Weeks: Time Management for Mortals’, that has garnered significant praise since being published in 2021 – and reinforced the author’s reputation as a thought-provoking writer on the so-called “search for happiness”, the limits of modern-day productivity, and how our relationship with time actually tells us more about ourselves than we’ve ever realised.
