The 4-Hour Workweek

Published May 22nd, 2007 by Bobby Henderson

I just read this book titled The 4-Hour Workweek by Tim Ferriss. It’s by far the best business/productivity book I’ve ever read. It’s all about cutting out the garbage that robs your time, and pursuing the things that matter.

I think maybe I liked it so much because I’ve been trying to avoid a “real job” so hard for the last couple years.

There’s a lot of really important, counter-intuitive ideas laid out in this book. Like, for instance: Busyness is a form of laziness to avoid doing the important things you need to do. I have days where I check my email 10+ times a day, and get nothing done.

If you’re interested in this kind of stuff, and I suspect a lot of Pastafarians are, check out Tim’s blog here. Or go buy the book here.

    well, Wench Beth, if I can arrange a rain transfer, I’ll need an address. Excellent points, DutchPastaGuy. Forgive me my crassness and idiocy. I had a little too much rum.

    Four hour week eh? I do barely four hours a day on average. That’s why I’m job hunting. Well that’s not quite true, I’m job hunting for more cash not more hours…I don’t have a wife or kids so I have no reason to want to stay at work all day.

    I find it strange that I can spend so much time on my computer and produce very little of any import or creative merit. I have always somewhat operated under the delusion that should I win a large sum of money, it would be the free time it allowed me which would give me the freedom to excel at my creative endeavours. this is quite blatantly not the case or I would be using the vast amount of time I’m not at work to do amazing things. I do so enjoy being board though, I am of the Rincewind type…Exciting times are dangerous and best avoided. That’s not to say I want to avoid excitement by doing boring things. (there’s a subtle difference)

    I must prove my pastafarian credentials I feel as this is my first post here.
