Productbeschrijving

A new, updated and expanded edition of this New York Times bestseller on how to reconstruct your life so it's not all about work

Forget the old concept of retirement and the rest of the deferred-life plan - there is no need to wait and every reason not to, especially in unpredictable economic times. Whether your dream is escaping the rat race, experiencing high-end world travel, earning a monthly five-figure income with zero management, or just living more and working less, this book is the blueprint.

This step-by step guide to luxury lifestyle design teaches:

* How Tim went from $40,000 dollars per year and 80 hours per week to $40,000 per MONTH and 4 hours per week
* 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 frequent 'mini-retirements'.

This new updated and expanded edition includes:

More than 50 practical tips and case studies from readers (including families) who have doubled their income, overcome common sticking points, and reinvented themselves using the original book as a starting point
* Real-world templates you can copy for eliminating email, negotiating with bosses and clients, or getting a private chef for less than £5 a meal
* How lifestyle design principles can be suited to unpredictable economic times
* The latest tools and tricks, as well as high-tech shortcuts, for living like a diplomat or millionaire without being either.

4.0 van 5 sterren He claims his methods can be applied universally, but I'm not so sure. 15 augustus 2014
door bookwormthemillionth - Gepubliceerd op Amazon.com

I had heard a lot of people rave about this book before I finally picked it up and decided to read it for myself. I'm glad that I read it, but I don't think it was quite as life-changing for me as it was for some of my friends. Don't get me wrong, Ferriss makes some excellent points and he's got some really great tips and tricks in here, I'm just not sure how universal they really are.

First of all, when I picked up the book, I didn't expect that he was literally working only four hours a week. I thought he was just talking about ways to spend less time working, but that "The 4-Hour" just sounded good (since he now has a whole line of books with titles that start that way). Nope. Turns out he really only worked four hours every week for a few years. I hate him. Now, with his series of books and everything, that's not true so much, so I hate him less. Now his job is much more similar to what I actually want to do.

As I said, Ferriss has some great ways of eliminating clutter and busywork, including things you don't even think of as busywork. I've already started implementing some of these tips at work, and they've come in pretty handy so far. I keep meaning to get rid of a bunch of my physical clutter, but my laziness keeps getting in the way of that. I'll get around to it in the next few weeks.

I also appreciated his philosophy of taking mini-retirements throughout life, rather than one long retirement at the end of life. I never did understand the point of retirement, so Ferriss's plan sounds much more appealing to me. As he put it, retirement should be nothing more than a fail-safe in case something happens and you are physically (or mentally) incapable of working. My thoughts exactly.

My main problem with his philosophy is that it really only works if you have a product that you are not actually making, but that you can sell. For example, even if I were to quit my day job and write all day every day, I would still be working a lot. Granted, that would make my job a whole lot more portable, but I could never get away with only working four hours per week (at least not until after I sell that bestselling novel, which is such a realistic plan!) In order to do it his way, I would need to have something that is already produced, or that someone else is making (clothes, dietary supplement, etc.) where all I have to do is collect the money that comes in from those sales.

Of course, that's a lot harder than it sounds. His ways of eliminating the useless from his life are really quite impressive, and not to be underestimated, but I still wonder if someone in their twenties, who is just starting out in life, can really make his plan work? Some of his success stories include people negotiating working remotely, because they have built up value in their company. Someone who has only been working at their current job for a year or two does not have the kind of leverage necessary to do that.

Additionally, he talks about the trick to getting out of your job so you can go have that great once-in-a-lifetime adventure. He mentions considering the worst-case scenario and the fact that worst-case is not necessarily all that bad. One of his points he brings up is that, if he loses his job, he can get another one fairly easily. Well, great for him, but the original book was written before the job market collapsed, followed by this lovely "jobless recovery". I was recently unemployed for eight months and it was not fun. I, too, thought I could get another job within a few months, but that did not turn out to be the case. So, if I go spend all my money on a mini-retirement now, and then come back only to find that I can't get a job for another year, I'll be screwed. Yes, even that worst-case scenario isn't that bad. I could always move back in with my parents, but I'd really rather not. I love them, but they have enough to deal with right now, and the last thing I want to do is burden the people around me because I decided to go globe-trotting for a few months. Timothy Ferriss told me it would be fine!

5.0 van 5 sterren Highly recommended to anyone with a tolerance for risk 6 augustus 2015

After years of chasing money only to find out that the attainment of monetary gain was not fulfilling in itself I decided to move to Thailand and roll the dice. Initially the plan was to teach English and then I decided to go ahead and read this, it had been sitting on my shelf collecting dust, and it completely opened my eyes to a world of possibilities. I am leaving 9/8/2015 and I have 2 "muses" planned including one that is already in the works. Teaching English is now a safety net and I absolutely owe it to 4HWW. Highly recommended to anyone with a tolerance for risk.

4.0 van 5 sterren A Book That Will Make You Feel Uncomfortable and Inspired at the Same Time 9 maart 2013
door Ken Flemming - Gepubliceerd op Amazon.com
Geverifieerde aankoop
The 4-Hour Workweek doesn't beat around the bush: it gets to the point in making a statement that the fastest way to get wealthy is by hiring other people and building an online business. It even says that outsourcing is the way to go to save money and to get rid of the nonsense in your life by having other people do the work that you don't want to and you can focus on the bigger wins, which is most likely building a new business or managing the future of an existing one.

Tim Ferriss uses rogue and immoral practices such as trying to get your boss to let you work from home more so that you can work remotely from a cheaper country. I don't know about you, but I can imagine that this would be extremely difficult to execute in the line of business that I am in--since it is super-collaborative. I don't agree with everything in this book, and a lot of it's theories seem immoral to me and "fly-by-night" or "get-rich-quick" methods. It does have merit though, and it tells you the best websites to use to build your own website and market your product and do market analysis on your customer purchases.

Here are some notable sections of the book:

-New rich are people who are self-made and have built a business or success from nothing. They are people who like to have fun and be more flaunting with their wealth and have more fun. They are the live fast, die young crowd but they do it with large paychecks. I may not agree with flaunting my money everywhere whenever I become rich, but I would rather be someone who is a new rich and has more fun than the traditional corporate world high-paying and stressful job. The new rich don't associate time with money, but rather results with money and understand how to do more with less (which is most likely utilizing technology or paying someone else to do it). If a video goes viral on Youtube, it may have only taken an afternoon to make, yet has more credibility than a product or service that has taken years to craft. It is mostly about leverage in the new-rich age.

-There is an example in the book about a comparison between two different strategies for selling products. One person does not use any data analysis and does not focus-test their product before revealing it to a broader audience. The other person does not spend much time developing their product but spends most of their time analyzing the marketing data and customer actions such as PPC, or pay per click in Google ad-words. They test which wording is the best on their site and the structure of the website and the button placement. This person ends up winning more customers in the end, because they understand the psychology of selling and what customers are more likely to do when presented with certain information. Just like the name of the book "4 hour:" Tim said that he did countless testing to see which search inquiry had the most popularity online whenever he was determining a new title for his book. It didn't matter what he thought, it mattered what the customers wanted more. He knew that the title and the information in the book would be desirable and an easy sell before he even started selling it--as opposed to spending all of his time thinking that he himself is making the right decisions and then trying to fix a broken product once it is released.

-Anyone can be an expert. He claims that with the digital age that everyone is an expert, because knowledge is so readily available. The only difference between an expert and someone who is not one is positioning: selling yourself as an expert and marketing yourself by giving seminars or appearing in talk shows to build hype around yourself. I used to think that this was immoral, but if you look at all of the marketing that goes into rising singing stars then you will know that there is a lot of hype that was built for nothing and most of the part of greatness is marketing and convincing others that you are great and to want the service that you have. This is why you must micro-est everything and leave nothing to chance when going to market.

-Mini-Retirements. Quite the quirky section of the book. Tim talks about taking vacations for cheap and staying in more poor countries than America so that the exchange rate is lower. He claims that for a vacation to truly be life-changing, it must be long-term and around two months rather than two weeks. I think this idea is interesting but I'm not sure if it is for everyone: me included. I'm sure that living abroad is life-changing but I don't think that many people would have the drive to keep doing that and still be able to build a successful empire if they are relaxing too much.

I began reading this book being defensive and not wanting to believe it's practices. I still don't know if there is such a thing as a four hour workweek but the book does prove that time does not equal money and that by being smarter and being scale-able with your approach to life that you can leverage other people's time and money to gain more with your own contributions. If you look at all major companies or businesses owners, they have already been using these practices for quite some time yet did not put it in blunt and clear terms that this book does. In order to get the life style that you want you have to change your approach to life and utilize automated systems and the new technology that we have at our fingertips. In order to be successful you have to test your product and hire others to do work that would take you too long to learn on your own. This book is essentially calling everyone to break free from their employee status and to work for themselves and be an entrepreneur. Many like the idea, but only a few make it happen. I believe that this book is a wealth of information and is the sort of knowledge that you won't learn in school, but is the ultimate lesson in "street smarts."

Just done with my first read and I think will have to read it again atleast a couple of times more to truly implement every bit of the fantastic style to live each day as advocated in the book! I'm determined to do all that's possible to save our precious little time of this finite life and truly enjoy those moments that matter to you the most, those that really make you happy! I am also now inspired to write my own blog about the difficulties I have surpassed from in the hope that it will help many out there! Great work Tim Ferris!

After so many years of postponing this reading i was pleasantly surprised. This book has practical techniques to liberate you from the mundane 8-5 paradigm. Can't wait to begin my mini retirements by increasing my productivity and focus on passive income.
