What do you do? Tim Ferriss has trouble answering the question. Depending on when you ask this controversial Princeton University guest lecturer, he might answer: “I race motorcycles in Europe.” “I ski in the Andes.” “I scuba dive in Panama.” “I dance tango in Buenos Aires.” He has spent more than five years learning the secrets of the New Rich, a fast-growing subculture who has abandoned the “deferred-life plan” and instead mastered the new currencies-time and mobility-to create luxury lifestyles in the here and now. Whether you are an overworked employee or an entrepreneur trapped in your own business, this book is the compass for a new and revolutionary world. Join Tim Ferriss as he teaches you:? How to outsource your life to overseas virtual assistants for $5 per hour and do whatever you want? How blue-chip escape artists travel the world without quitting their jobs? How to eliminate 50% of your work in 48 hours using the principles of a forgotten Italian economist? How to trade a long-haul career for short work bursts and freuent “mini-retirements”? What the crucial difference is between absolute and relative income? How to train your boss to value performance over presence, or kill your job (or company) if it's beyond repair? What automated cash-flow “muses” are and how to create one in 2 to 4 weeks? How to cultivate selective ignorance-and create time-with a low-information diet? What the management secrets of Remote Control CEOs are? How to get free housing worldwide and airfare at 50–80% off? How to fill the void and create a meaningful life after removing work and the office

Summary Notes
We don’t necessarily want to be rich, we want the lifestyle that we think comes with being rich.

Most “rules” can be broken with no consequences, and sometimes with massive benefits. Don’t assume anything is fixed.

If it isn’t going to devastate those around you, try it and then justify it after.

It’s more fun and more effective to leverage and focus on your strengths, rather than try to fix every single chink in your armor.

Look at what you’re doing and ask what would happen if you did things differently from everyone around you. Where will your current track take you in 5, 10, 20 years?

When you completely define your fears, you’ll frequently find that they’re not nearly as bad as you thought. Rather, the likely “bad” outcomes would have a small effect on your life, but the “good” outcomes could massively benefit you (see Antifragile).

The rest of the world is just as insecure as you are.

The unrealistic is frequently easier than the realistic, there’s less competition.

Doing something unimportant well doesn’t make it important.

Taking a lot of time doesn’t make something important.

Being busy is a form of laziness, or lack of control over one’s life.

Parkinson’s law, a task will swell to fit the time given to it.

Ask yourself what you do to feel productive (see Fauxductivity).

Many problems simply go away when ignored.

Don’t check email so much, you don’t need to.

If someone else can do it 80% as well as you, outsource or delegate it

💡Learnt A Lot

Если постараться не обращать внимание на кликбейтный заголовок (выбранный как раз по этому принципу), то можно получить десятки полезных советов по личной эффективности, путешествиям и предпринимательству.

После прочтения есть соблазн резюмировать впечатление советами из книги. Их там действительно много — просмотрите оглавление чтобы примерно понять о чем речь. Каждый разбирается на подробных примерах из личного опыта. И, хотя не каждый получится применить в своей жизни, это отличный старт, чтобы начать думать о том как привнести больше осознанности и свободы в свою жизнь.

Самое полезное, если книга заинтересует настолько, что вы захотите углубиться в мир продуктивности Тима Феррисса. Блог, рассылки и подкасты помогут поддерживать интерес и подливать новые порции советов на пути к полному контролю над своей жизнью.

The opposite of love is indifference, and the opposite of happiness is—here’s the clincher—boredom

My parents have never made more than $50,000 per year combined, and I’ve worked since age 14. I’m no Rockefeller and you needn’t be either.
