Giggle of the Day: the four hour work week (you wish)

You’ve heard about the “four hour work week” right?

Whether you have or not, read this post and chuckle. It’s the funniest thing I’ve read in days.

5 Time management tricks I learned from years of hating Tim Ferriss | Penelope Trunk’s Brazen Careerist says:

“When his book came out, there were vacuous, annoying comments all over my blog directing people to his book. Like, ‘The topic of priorities is an interesting one. I like how Tim Ferris handles that in his new book,blah blah’ and then there’s a link to the book.

At this point I knew Tim, sort of. And I called him on his phone and told him to tell his employees to stop spamming my blog.

First he implied it was his fan base and he had little control.

I said that I thought he was full of sh*t.

He said he’d make sure there were no more comments like that on my blog.”

I read Ferris’s book and it turned out to be about out-sourcing, which is a great strategy until you try it. I’d already tried it, and discovered that my patience had severe limits, so gave up on using it for the most part.

I completely agree with Penelope — “But then his four-hour work week is merely semantic. Because everything Tim does he turns into what the rest of us would call work, and he calls it not-work.”

Four hour work week? Not in this life.
