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.

    How dare you question the Prophet Bobby’s judgment? Say 10 RAmen’s and eat a bowl of spaghetti immediately.

    Those of us saddled with real jobs spend our time devising ways to look busy instead of being so. Once you get a real job, you will appreciate the nobility of this calling. By the way, if you can survive without a real job, do it. And please tell me how.
