Four Hour Work WeekI don’t care about working 4 hours per week. As a matter of fact, these days I’m working about 70 hours per week with zero income. Your best bet may just be to turn away now. Did you hear me? RUN. That way!

Since you seem like the adventurous type, check out a quick 16 of my favorite quotes from the first quarter of Tim Ferriss’ 4HWW book.

“If we define risk as ‘the likelihood of an irreversible negative outcome,’ inaction is the greatest risk of all.”

“Most people will choose unhappiness over uncertainty.”

“The options are limitless, but each path begins with the same first step replacing assumptions.”

“The commonsense rules of the ‘real world’ are a fragile collection of socially reinforced illusions.”

“Few people choose to (or are able to) measure the results of their action and thus measure their contribution in time. More time equals more self-worth and more reinforcement from those above and around them.”

“Don’t follow a model that doesn’t work. If the recipe sucks, it doesn’t matter how good a cook you are.”

“The worst that could happen wasn’t crashing and burning, it was accepting terminal boredom as a tolerable status quo.”

“You spend two weeks negotiating your new Infiniti with the dealership and got $10,000 off? That’s great. Does your life have a purpose? Are you contributing anything useful to this world, or just shuffling papers, banging on a keyboard, and coming home to a drunken existence on the weekends?”

“The question you should be asking yourself isn’t, “What do I want” or “What are my goals?” but “What would excite me?”

“What we fear doing most is usually what we most need to do. As I have heard said, a person’s success in life can usually be measured by the number of uncomfortable conversations he or she is willing to have.”

“The question is then, how can one achieve the millionaire lifestyle of complete freedom without first having $1,000,000?”

“The blind quest for cash is a fool’s errand… If you can free your time and location, your money is automatically worth 3-10 times as much.”

“The fishing is best where the fewest go, and the collective insecurity of the world makes it easy for people to hit home runs while everyone else is aiming for base hits.”

“You won’t believe what you can accomplish by attempting the impossible with the courage to repeatedly fail better.”

“It’s lonely at the top. Ninety-nine percent of people in the world are convinced they are incapable of achieving great things, so they aim for mediocre. The level of competition is thus fiercest for “realistic” goals, paradoxically making them the most time-consuming. It’s easier to raise $1,000,000 than it is $100,000. It is easier to pick up the one perfect 10 in the bar than the five 8s.”

“I’m prepared to do battle for a dream that is worth dreaming.”
