Join AVM members to discuss the book ‘Four Thousand Weeks’, by Oliver Burkeman.
“If you live to 80, you’ll have barely more than four thousand weeks on earth. How will you decide how to spend them?”
Subtitled ‘Time Management for Mortals’, join us to discuss how we volunteer managers can reject the ‘futile modern obsession with ‘getting everything done”, and focus on what counts.
Not got the time to read the book? Have a listen to this episode of the ‘Hurry Slowly’ podcast.
The aim of AVM’s book club is to create an opportunity to read and discuss books with other members. We generally choose books that are not necessarily related to volunteer management, but challenge our thinking, and help us think outside the norm.
AVM’s book club is for you if you’re looking to find the motivation and accountability it sometimes takes to read more, and also gain a deeper insight through discussion with fellow AVM members.
You are not required to have read all – or even any – of book club books to come to a meeting. In fact, book club is a chance to find out more about a book before deciding to read it.
This event will not be recorded.
