I don't want to spend too much time writing, but am excited to share some links:
Tim Ferriss- totally inspired by this guy. Listen to him here:
http://www.ted.com/index.php/talks/tim_ferriss_smash_fear_learn_anything.html (and a host of other great speakers)
Looking for more practice time? Buy his book here:
Visit his homepage here:
I was also inspired by reading Seneca's letter on the shortness of life. The letter can be found on Tim's blog in it's entirety, here:
Seneca on the shortness of life:
"You will hear many men saying: “After my fiftieth year I shall retire into leisure, my sixtieth year shall release me from public duties.” And what guarantee, pray, have you that your life will last longer? Who will suffer your course to be just as you plan it? Are you not ashamed to reserve for yourself only the remnant of life, and to set apart for wisdom only that time which cannot be devoted to any business? How late it is to begin to live just when we must cease to live! What foolish forgetfulness of mortality to postpone wholesome plans to the fiftieth and sixtieth year, and to intend to begin life at a point to which few have attained!"
Now go live!
awesome website. never knew about ted.com before. i think i may get addicted.
Yeah, Ted Talks rule!
My boss was not pleased with the idea of a four-hour work week. A first he even mistook it for a four-hour work day!
I wonder how much time a week Tim Ferriss devotes to spreading this idea.
Of course your boss didn't like the idea! Ha- that's the point.
And the more time Tim devotes to living, the better! :-)
