I was in a conference call with Mr. Ferriss and Yanik Silver last night and have to admit that I'm really impressed. Ferris is not promoting a "get rich quick scheme" or anything like that. Instead, Ferriss advocates for a lifestyle design. In other words, your work has to serve your ideal lifestyle, not the other way around.
Some of the tips Ferriss offers in his book are very cool:
- Check your e-mail twice a day (or every 10 days)
- Outsource your life (this is an interesting concept that will free you of many time-consuming but unproductive tasks--he shows you how to do it for less than $5 per hour)
- Take "mini retirements"
- Go on a low-information diet
You must read this book and implement some of his ideas: you'll see a great difference in your workstyle right away. Click here to read more about The 4-hour workweek.
