Book Review: The 4 Hour Workweek - Expanded and Updated by Timothy Ferriss

There are a lot of these motivational books that are all about how to change your lifestyles and gain success in the future. Many of them do not deliver results. The few that do work need to be searched for, one of them is the 'The 4-Hour Workweek'. This is a must read for all those who wish to see a difference in their lives.

Although the name of the book may give you ideas of gaining a lot of money in a short amount of time, you are mistaken. This book is not about getting rich and retiring at the age of 30. It is all about living everyday with satisfaction that you have done everything to your full potential while constantly learning to enjoy yourselves instead of putting off all the fun until retirement when you will be too old to fully enjoy life. The basic idea is that, if you are able to both work remotely and work flexible hours (doesn't matter what profession you're in), than you can eventually apply the rules in this book to your life.

The book preaches several key principles to achieving an ideal lifestyle that allows you to do what you love without becoming a millionaire:

1. Keep your demands from life as minimal as possible. What it means that one must learn to lead a simple life without the desire to make unnecessary demands from yourselves. It has been proven by countless studies that those people who are always content with life and have minimal requirements lead happier lives than those who are always after materialistic pleasure.

2. Don't let your work run your life. Instead of working abnormal hours at your work in order to makea lot of money, work as much is necessary to lead your lives to your satisfaction. Job satisfaction is what you actually need not just loads of money. By reducing the time you spend making money, you are freeing up your most valuable resource (time), which is truly limited.

3.Focus on one thing at a time. Don't divert your attention to a lot of things but rather stick to one objective and give it your full attention. This will be much more productive for you and it will give you much more satisfaction.

A fantastic read! - If you want to simplify your life i recommend the 4 hour workweek by Timothy Ferriss, a great read that could also be your escape from the traditional work / retire cycle.
