Any given day can seem quite long (ask me about yesterday from 5:45 a.m. to 8:45 a.m.!). And yet our whole lives are just a blip in the span of the universe. According to Oliver Burkeman, we might live for Four Thousand Weeks or so. Knowing that, how should we approach our time?
Oliver and I explore these questions and more on this week’s episode of Best of Both Worlds. From the human tendency to avoid conscious decisions to the virtues of plans that are smaller than the available space, we cover strategies for enjoying our 4000 weeks (or perhaps our 800,000 hours — I think I was a bit more generous in my calculation for one of my books!).
In the Q&A section, Sarah and I address a query from a listener who feels guilty about how much revenue her non-profit consulting business generates compared with the salaries some of her clients earn. Should she feel this way? Please give the episode a listen, and as always we welcome ratings and reviews!
