Four Hour Work Week review

About a month ago I saw Tim Ferriss on a  you tube video discussing how to handle objections and comments on his website. Some of the suggestions were quite comical.

I then found out that he had written several really great books.  I purchased one, starting out with the Four Hour Work Week, and found it to be inspirational on how to organize my efforts. The 4-Hour Workweek, Expanded and Updated: Expanded and Updated, With Over 100 New Pages of Cutting-Edge Content.

Well automation is well known, I still liked how he pushed for making things automatic. Handling the work load so you could pursue other endeavors. And be stress-free. Checking your email every once and awhile, making sure your accounts are still funneling your commissions from online sales.

The "New Rich" he calls these free thinkers, the only thing I disagree with is he kept referring to the New Rich as a generational mindset. This is for anyone who wants to help smooth out those rough spots we've discussed.  That extra help in vacation planning.

I think its well worth the read, you do get trapped with working in your business and not on your business. Very easily I might add. This has always been my problem, as I feel that everything can be tweaked to help things run better.

In case you haven't read the book yet, do yourself a favor and see how automation can help you and your business!

Four Hour Work Week review

  1. Before I got this book, I was under the impression that this book would be another get rich quick book. It’s not that type of book. Instead it’s about learning how to let go of things in your life so you can have more time to enjoy it. It talks about how you can enjoy the joys of the rich without having to have a lot of money. I like how the point is made in the book about retirement. Why wait until you are old and can’t really enjoy your retirement? Why not set yourself up in your youth to have mini-retirements that you can enjoy. This is a good book and it’s making me rethink reenlisting into the active duty. I’m thinking about joining the guard or reserves, so I can enjoy my mini-retirements while I’m still young.

  2. A friend recommended this to me. I have really struggled to get through it. I’ve found a few ideas that were applicable to my life, but not nearly as many as I’d hoped. I do like that it tries to, at least initially, help the reader recognize that you work to live not live to work. What did strike me was that it seemed a huge amount of work was required to get to this magical “4 hour work week,” and it did not seem doable. I wondered how long I’d have to work extra time and hours before I could even get near this ultimate goal. Maybe if I can get myself to finish it, I’ll find something more in it that applies to my own life and my own dreams. It really focused on more product oriented businesses and possibly some service businesses, but not at all my field. I haven’t given up because I’m willing to see if there’s anything good in this book, but I don’t want to waste my life trying to dig out the nuggets.

  3. This book assists you reorganizing your work, the way you waste time at the office and how to dare making the most of your beautiful life! Amazing, I’m a brand new big fan of Tim. He’s a genius that guy!
