I love Tim Ferriss.
The Four Hour Work Week is an excellent interrogation and deconstruction of the 9-5 illusion most of us live.
Through his lifetime of self-experimentation of productivity systems, defying the norm, and quite frankly some weird stuff, Tim Ferriss has gained the authority and access to the excellent among us.
Even though I am not strictly a businessman like Tim, so many of the principles apply to your life, especially for work, outcome, and success.
For those who feel stuck in the rat race or stuck, by god, give Tim Ferris a go.
If in doubt, listen to his podcast. - Matt (QBD)
