The economist: The 4-hour workweek

Hope for the best and plan for the worst.
What's the worst that could happen?
"I encourage you to remember this often-neglected question as you begin to see the infinite possibilities outside of your current comfort zone."
  • Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect. -Mark Twain 
  • Anyone who lives within their means suffers from lack of imagination. -Oscar Wilde
Timothy Ferris - "What on earth would I be doing right now, if I hadn't left my job and the U.S. over a year ago?".... asking himself right before he entered a tango competition in Buenos Aires.

Timothy Ferris:
How can I possibly explain that what i do with my time and what I do for my money are completely different things? That i work less than four hours per week and make more per month that I used to make in a year? it involves the "New Rich".
The currency of the New Rich: time and mobility,  it's a lifestyle design.
People don´t want to be millionaires - they want to experience what they believe only millions can buy.

His lecture "Drug dealing for fun and profits" began with a simple premise: Test the most basic assumptions of the work-life equation.
  1. How do your decisions chage if retirement isn´t an option?
  2. What if you could use a mini-retirement to sample your deferred-life plan reward before working 40 years for it?
  3. Is it really necessary to work like a slave to live like a millionaire?
Point: seize the options others don´t. The goal is not to find your dream job, it doesn't exist. The goal is to free time and automate income.
The importance of being a "dealmaker" manifesto:
  • Reality is negotiable. Outside of science and law, all rules can be bent or broken, and it doesn't require being unethical.
Step by step process to reinvent yourself:
  • D for DEFINITION replace self-defeating assumptions
  • E for  ELIMINATION increasing your per -hour results fro cultivating selective ignorance, developing a low-information diet, and otherwise ignoring the unimportant. This provides TIME.
  • A for AUTOMATION to provide income
  • L for LIBERATION to provide mobility
