The 4-Hour Work Week

By: Tim Ferriss

The 4-Hour Workweek Book Cover

Way too many people recommended this book to me when I told them I was looking for books about entrepreneurship and finding purpose in life.

The first couple chapters were a bit rough for me to get through as I wasn’t relating to the message.

But the later chapters were awesome. Tim has a unique way of writing and viewing the World.

You should read this book if you are interested in outsourcing some labor, looking for ways to be more productive, and want to challenge the way and reason you are currently working.

Biggest Insights

For me the biggest takeaways were

  1. Mini-retirements – which goes against the idea of working your whole life and then relaxing.
  2. Testing your idea – buy some ads to a landing page and see if the market is interested in your product before you even build anything.

When asked about his purpose in life he says “to love, to be loved, and to never stop learning.” I liked that.
