Tim Ferriss And The 4- Hour Body. How It Can Teach You To Succeed In Business And Bed
I will say this right up front. I have been a big fan of Tim’s ever since he came out with his first best selling book “The 4 Hour Workweek”. After reading it all in one day, it inspired me to change my business focus forever and has lead me to some interesting twists in my life. Oh yea, it has also made me money. 🙂
If you have not read it, go to the library or better yet, go online and buy the latest version now.
To paraphrase and give you the Cliff Note’s version, he basically turns upside down most of the popularly accepted wisdom about work and starting and running your own business. And he shows you how to drastically increase your productivity and hence income while working a whole lot less.
Why Butter And Ribeyes Are Good And Orange Juice Is Bad
The 4-Hour Body does the same for your body and getting in shape. He blows way 90% of the conventional wisdom and proves why it is wrong. Things like why “not” eating butter is unhealthy and why you should, to eating way more protein like Ribeyes and why it is good for you and why the food Pyramid that is widely accepted will more than likely make you fat and unhealthy. Plus, how a few inexpensive supplements can stop Diabetes and High Cholesterol in their tracks and why if you do have high Cholesterol you want to stay away from Orange Juice.
Then you have to throw in how working out as little as 4 hours a month doing the right type of exercise can in fact make you healthier than if you worked out an hour a day, 5 days a week.
And that is just for starters. You also have to throw in there how to obtain a 15 minute female orgasm. Now the last one should be common knowledge but sadly, it apparently is not. 🙂
Tim covers a lot of ground in his latest book.
Which brings me up to how “The 4- Hour Body” and Tim Ferriss can help your business.
For my regular readers you already know this, but it is worth repeating. 90% of the accepted knowledge and wisdom that is written about how to succeed in Business in Magazines, Online Courses, and most especially in Colleges is plain and utter junk and worthless. Frankly most of it is just plain Bull Shit really and truly.
Tim points out the same thing about Health and Fitness Magazines, Exercise Courses and even what you hear from most Doctors and then he goes on to explain why and how you can verify this for yourself.
So, just imagine if you could only do about 20% of the work you do now and yet get 90% of the same results or perhaps even 120%? Well not only is it possible, but there are thousands of people already doing it every day.
One of the hardest things to do is to accept that fact that at least 80% of what you know about business is just wrong. Then the other hard thing is to take the new ideas and implement them.
The thing is that your mind is going to rebel at this for the most part. Not only that, everyone around you is going to tell you that you are nuts and give you crap about it too. That is unless of course you find some like minded people to give you some support.
If you are ready to accept the fact that most of what you know is junk and that the faster your get it out of your head, then you are going to like what I have for you in the coming weeks. I am going to start ripping apart the conventional wisdom that is more than likely keeping you from succeeding and being as successful as you should be.
I will be doing some short videos that are going to blow up the common misconceptions about running a profitable business online that you can start using right away.
Enjoy your New Year and get ready to make 2011 your most successful year ever!
Oh, and by the way. I started “The 4-Hour Body” about 10 days ago and the results so far? Lost 8 lbs or fat and gained 8 lbs of muscle. How is that? Plus I am eating like a horse and tomorrow, I will probably have a big Milkshake, eat some cake, have French Toast slathered in Butter and Syrup plus, eat whatever else my taste buds desire and will still lose weight. 🙂 My advice is to get the book and find out how I am doing it.
I will leave you with a little known Business success secret. If you want to make more money, get in shape, have more sex and open your mind to doing things differently.
Here is one of my favorite quotes. Tim uses it in his book and it is from William Gibson. If you are a Sci-fi fan, you will recognize it.
The future is already here – it’s just not very evenly distributed.
I am going to show you how to make sure it is distributed to you if you want it.
