The 4-hour Work Week

What is the difference between a wealthy filthy rich person and a cubicale dweller 9-5 working person? 

The purpose of this book is to understand what world traveling and luxury life freedom is. And to get to the answer to this question.


There are 3 ingredients for a luxury diet:

  1. TIME 


<p><strong><em><u>"Someday" is...

"Someday" is a curse to your dreams, because you'll take your dreams to the grave.


This book deals with what Ferriss refers to as "lifestyle design", and repudiates the traditional "deferred" life plan in which people work grueling hours and take few vacations for decades and save money in order to relax after retirement.


Whenever you find yourself on the side of majority, it’s time to pause and reflect.

  • How do your decisions change, if retirement is not an option? (Inactivity should not be a goal)
  • What if you could use a mini retirement to sample your deferred life plan reward before working 40 years for it?
  • Is it really necessary to work like a slave to live like a millionaire?

Remember “The perfect job is the one that takes the least time”.

Distress Is Bad, Eustress Is Good

not all stress is bad.

There are two separate types of stress

Distress refers to harmful stimuli that make u weaker, less confident, and less able.ex:Destructive criticism, abusive bosses

Eustress, on the other hand, is a stress that is healthful and the stimulus for growth.Eu-, a Greek prefix for "healthy," is used in the same sense in the word "euphoria." Ex:Role models who push us to exceed ur limits, risks that expand our sphere of comfortable action. there is no progress without eustress. the more eustress we can create or apply to our lives, the sooner we can actualize our dreams.
