Tim Ferriss at a TED Talk

You know those books that you pick up by chance one day that goes on to change the way you look at life? The Four Hour Work Week (4HWW) by Timothy Ferris was one of those books for me. It was published a few years ago and through judicious application of his own principles, it hit the bestseller lists, and stayed there for about a year. That should tell you something.

Tim’s main point is that people work far too hard and long for a distant future where they relax for a few years before they die, when they could be liberating themselves from the workplace entirely. The revolutionary idea behind 4HWW is that most people don’t dream of being millionaires because they want to have million dollars, they dream of being millionaires because they want the lifestyle that they thinks come with being a millionaire. Ferris’ point is that you don’t need a million dollars to live that life, you just need time, and the 4HWW is basically a manual about how to free yourself and develop passive income streams to make you money without lifting a finger so you have that time.
