Catherine Blyth: On Time
Talk | YCN Rivington Rooms — For our members

We'll sit down with Catherine Blyth, author of On Time and Enjoy Time, to gain some perspective on the power of slow.

Despite living longer lives than ever, technology and changing lifestyles mean we are always rushing to keep up with an increasingly fast-paced world, and it can feel like there is never enough time. In her book, On Time, Catherine Blyth combines scientific and anecdotal evidence to reveal universal truths about our relationship with time, and offers an alternative philosophy: "reset your body clock, refurbish your routine, harness momentum and slow down."

On 13th March Catherine will be joining us for an evening of discussion around the subject of time, how to enjoy it more, and rush less, whether it has really sped up, and how the steady and regular have been replaced by the instant and unpredictable. She'll be sharing some of thinking behind her book and answering your questions; if you'd like to discover ways to tackle procrastination, digital distractions, deadlines and other "time drains", please get in touch below to save yourself a spot.

More on Catherine Blyth:

Catherine is the author of The Art of Conversation and The Art of Marriage. She has worked as a gossip columnist, interviewer, publisher and now writes full-time. On Time was written when Catherine examined her relationship with time and decided to learn a new way of managing, navigating and enjoying it.
