    The title of this book can be a little deceiving and in a way make it sound like a scam or a fraud But it is anything but; Timothy Ferris introduces us to an array of new concepts and ideals and suashes the old concept of retirement and saving for the future He brings light to living for the now and not waiting for when you are old and grey to enjoy The 4 Hour work week is a blueprint for escaping the rat race

    Favorite uotes Money alone is not the solutionThere is much to be said for the power of money as currency I'm a fan myself but adding of it just isn't the answer as often as we'd like to think In part it's laziness If only I had money is the easiest way to postpone the intense self examination and decision making necessary to create a life of enjoyment — now and not later By using money as the scapegoat and work as our all consuming routine we are able to conveniently disallow ourselves the time to do otherwise John I'd love to talk about the gaping void I feel in my life the hopelessness that hits me like a punch in the eye every time I start my computer in the morning but I have so much work to do I've got at least three hours of unimportant e mail to reply to before calling the prospects who said 'no' yesterday Gotta runBusy yourself with the routine of the money wheel pretend it's the fix all and you'll artfully create a constant distraction that prevents you from seeing just how pointless it is Deep down you know it's all an illusion but with everyone participating in the same game of make believe it's easy to forgetThe problem is than money— Chapter 2 Rules That Change the Rules page 35 — Tags interestingJust a few words on time management Forget all about itIn the strictest sense you shouldn't be trying to do in each day trying to fill every second with a work fidget of some type— Chapter 5 The End of Time Management page 65 — Tags interestingSlow down and remember this Most things make no difference Being busy is a form of laziness — lazy thinking and indiscriminate actionBeing overwhelmed is often as unproductive as doing nothing and is far unpleasant— Chapter 5 The End of Time Management page 73 — Tags enlightening interestingLearn to ProposeStop asking for opinions and start proposing solutions Begin with the small things If someone is going to ask or asks Where should we eat? What movie should we watch? What should we do tonight? or anything similar do NOT reflect it back with Well what do you want to ? Offer a solution Stop the back and forth and make a decision Practice this in both personal and professional environments— Chapter 5 The End of Time Management page 81 TagsFour years ago an economist changed my life forever It's a shame I never had a chance to buy him a drink My dear Vilfredo died almost 100 years agoVilfredo Pareto was a wily and controversial economist cum sociologist who lived from 1848 to 1923 An engineer by training he started his varied career managing coal mines and later succeeded Léon Walras as the chair of political economy at the University of Luasanne in Switzerland His seminal work Cours d'economie politiue included a then little explored law of income distribution that would later bear his name Pareto's Law or the Pareto Distribution in the last decade also popularly called the 8020 PrincipleThe mathematical formula he used to demonstrate a grossly uneven but predictable distribution of wealth in society — 80% of the wealth and income was produced and possessed by 20% of the population — also applied outside of economics Indeed it could be found almost everywhere Eighty percent of Pareto's garden peas were produced by 20% of the peapods he had planted for examplePareto's Law can be summarized as follows 80% of the outputs result from 20% of the inputs Alternative ways to phrase this depending on the context include80% of the conseuences flow from 20% of the causes80% of the results come from 20% of the effort and time80% of the company profits come from 20% of the products and customers80% of all stock market gains are realized by 20% of the investors and 20% of an individual portfolioThe list is infinitely long and diverse and the ratio is often skewed even severely 9010 955 and 991 are not uncommon but the minimum ratio to seek is 8020When I came across Pareto's work one late evening I had been slaving away with 15 hour days seven days per week feeling completely overwhelmed and generally helpless I would wake up before dawn to make calls to the United Kingdom handle the United States during the normal 9 5 day and then work until near midnight making calls to Japan and New Zealand I was stuck on a runaway freight train with no brakes shoveling coal into the furnace for lack of a better option Faced with certain burnout or giving Pareto's ideas a trial run I opted for the latter The next morning I began a dissection of my business and personal life through the lenses of two uestionsWhich 20% of sources are causing 80% of my problems and unhappiness?Which 20% of sources are resulting in 80% of my desired outcomes and happiness?For the entire day I put aside everything seemingly urgent and did the most intense truth baring analysis possible applying these uestions to everything from my friends to customers and advertising to relaxation activities Don't expect to find you're doing everything right — the truth often hurts The goal is to find your inefficiencies in order to eliminate them and to find your strengths so that you can multiply them— Chapter 5 The End of Time Management pages 69 70 — Tags interestingGo on an immediate one week media fastThe world doesn't even hiccup much less end when you cut the information umbilical cord To realize this it's best to use the Band Aid approach and do it uickly a one week media fast Information is too much like ice cream to do otherwise Oh I'll just have a half a spoonful is about as realistic as I just want to jump online for a minute Go cold turkeyIf you want to go back to the 15000 calorie potato chip information diet afterward fine but beginning tomorrow and for at least five full days here are the rulesNo newspapers magazines audiobooks or nonmusic radio Music is permitted at all timesNo news websites whatsoever cnncom drudgereportcom msncom etcNo television at all except for one hour of pleasure viewing each eveningNo reading books except for this book and one hour of fiction pleasure reading before bedNo Web surfing at the desk unless it is necessary to complete a work task for that day Necessary means necessary not nice to haveUnnecessary reading is public enemy number one during this one week fast— Chapter 6 The Low Information Diet pages 86 87 TagsI haven't found exactly where it occurs yet but I remember thinking that this book contains the best abstract ever on the reasons and great advantages to putting process at the center of building a business The material was probably in Chapters 5 7 Step II E is for Elimination in reference to most e mail distractions being a failure to capture such activities and interchanges within a process— Somewhere in Chapters 5 7?
