The 4 Hour Workweek

A truly brilliant book. I picked this up after reading another book (Cut to the chase) on 100 rules to make more of your time, which was totally exhausting and ust made me feel inadequate.

 The 4 hour workweek shows you simply how to revolutionise your work and do it in far less time. Work out the 20% of your time that gets 80% of the result and cut out the rest. Cut your hours to avoid Parkinsons Law taking effect (of work expanding to fill the time available), limit your email to twice a day - and make sure you get at least one important task done first. Automate and outsource. Hire a virtual assistant in India. Lots of approaches that simply make you loka t things differently.

And, yes, it is already changing the way I work and I'm getting more done.

And then there are lots of ideas for how you can sell products online, set the whole thing to work automatically, get down to four hours a week and travel the world doing what you want.

Absolutely recommended to anybody.
