On today's lesson: Oliver Burkeman is a British journalist that writes about productivity and time management and is author of “Four Thousand Weeks.” In the book, the author tells a story about a professor that challengers her students to go to a museum and look at a painting or a sculpture for three hours, so we did a modified version of that. Plus, learn “run out.”
