“The 4-Hour Work Week” by Timothy Ferriss

Written by George Traganidas Topics: Books, Habits, Personal Finance, Time Management

The 4-hour Work Week

This is an amazing book and I believe that it is a must read for people who want to get out of the office jobs and experience life to the full. Tim explains how he went from working 80h per week to working 4h per week while at the same time increasing the profits in his company.

In this book he gives the tools and techniques that he used to achieve this and how other people he met during his travel have achieved similar goals. His main process has four steps and he explains them in great depth. At the start, he recommends that you need to define which tasks are important to you and which ones are not. The second step is to eliminate what is not important. Then you automate the ones that are left and then you are ready for the final step, liberation.

He explains in much detail how to do these steps and also provides many resources that can help you on the way. His process is applicable to all people, employees, entrepreneurs, single people, families, single parents; everyone can follow the steps and design their life the way that suits them.

I am sure that this book will make you think hard about the things you do in life and help you focus on the important ones. Then you can spend more time on what is important in your life and what makes you happy. As he says in the book “How would you change your life today if retirement was not a choice?” If you like the book you can buy it from here.

Follow the practical way,
