Summary: The 4hour workweek Timothy Ferriss

This work offers a summary of the book “THE 4HOUR WORKWEEK: Escape 95, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich” by Timothy Ferriss.

Timothy Ferriss is a serial entrepreneur. In addition to speaking six languages, Ferriss runs a multinational firm from wireless locations worldwide. His eclectic passions include being a world record holder in tango, a national champion in Chinese kickboxing and a guest lecturer at Princeton University.

In The 4Hour Workweek, he explains that there is a new subculture of people in the world who have figured out that the 95 grindstone doesn't really fire up their imaginations to any great degree. Instead, they organize their lives and follow a set of uncommon rules which typically allows them to work less than four hours a week but earn more in a month than most people do in a year.

These people are the “New Rich” (NR). They abandon the conventional deferredlife plan (work now and retire later) and instead develop their own signature lifestyles which utilize the currencies of the New Rich: time and mobility.

The 4Hour Workweek gives you four steps to follow which will take you from being deferredlife oriented to becoming part of the New Rich.

A good guide to be a downshifer. Just really one thing is missing - where to get money for that. Yes, there is a chapter about this that says establish a startup, it is so simple. But obviously 99% of them fail together with your dreams to be free, bringing huge loans and broken families. But even if you are succeed in being an entrepreneur, you have to work much more than being an employee. And don't forget that since then you are working for your investors as well. Probably they won't be happy to your 4 hours week.
However, the book is quite inspiring )

Invigorating, motivating, introducing infinite possibilities. However many things mentioned can't be done from my home country Indonesia.

It’s always much more fun to ask for forgiveness rather than asking for permission
