By working only when you are most effective, life is both more productive and more enjoyable.
The 4-hour work week is one of my favourite Entrepreneurship books of all time. Not because I want to work less (I think I would go crazy), but because it opened me up to the philosophy of creating a lifestyle business and is actually what gave me the confidence to start up in the first place. I am a sucker for inspirational quotes and there are some real gems that Tim Ferris has both created and compiled. Here is a list of my few favourites 🙂
By the way if you haven’t read the book yet, give it a shot. It is life changing.
If it isn’t going to devastate those around you, try it and then justify it.
I realized that on a scale of 1-10, 1 being nothing and 10 being permanently life changing, my so called worst scenario might have a temporary impact of 3 or 4… My best case scenario, or even a probable case scenario would easily have a permanent 9 or 10 positive life-changing effect.
Most people will choose unhappiness over uncertainty.
I can’t give you a surefire formula for success, but I can give you a formula for failure: try to please everybody all the time – Herbert Bayard Swope.
Action may not always bring happiness, but there is no happiness without action – Benjamin Disraeli.
