This is a book for those who feel like there’s never enough time for the things that matter, who fear they’re too late for something important in their life, and who sense there’s something they should be doing right now—but aren’t sure what it is. This experience is called time anxiety. It affects some of us more than others, and it’s different from diagnosed conditions such as ADHD and autism. Productivity hacks and “time management” strategies tend to mask the problem, ultimately doing more harm than good. This is because of a simple truth: time is limited, but desire is limitless. Facing this truth is the first step to making peace with our inability to do everything.

In TIME ANXIETY, Guillebeau will guide readers towards eliminating unnecessary obligations and establishing a fundamentally different relationship with the clock.

Chris Guillebeau is also the author of Wall Street Journal bestsellers The Happiness of Pursuit and Born for This. Over the course of a lifetime of self-employment and side hustling, he visited every country in the world (193 in total) before his 35th birthday.
