Entertaining advice — 4 years ago
Initially I thought this book would be another compilation of time-management advice. Not at all! Its emphasis is on the word “live” in the title, and the goal is to help you arrive at a feeling of having lived your life, rather than passing through it and feeling vaguely dissatisfied. The advised process by which you may achieve this is to revisit how you employ your non-work hours, and to use them to greater personal benefit through a combination of mental focus exercise, self-analysis, and enriching education in topics that interest you. This summary probably sounds a bit dry — the actual text is delightfully entertaining, with a strong author voice. Even better, you can listen to it as an audiobook for free through librivox! The total listening time is only 1.5 hours, so I imagine it’d be an even faster read. Enjoy!
