The 4-Hour Workweek

Ferriss suggests that many executives could dramatically reduce their time spent working by delegating work to virtual assistants and investing in business ventures that generate income with very little time spent on them. This kind of work life, he states, allows the executive lots of time to travel and pursue hobbies while providing plenty of money to live on. To pursue this type of work life, he states that first, you have to define your goal. Next, eliminate tasks that take time and learn to selectively ignore information. Third, he explains how to automate your income so that it takes up very little of your time. Finally, he explains how you can spend the time that you've now liberated for yourself.
