The 4-Hour Workweek (Review)
Someone introduced me to this book, and I thought that I would have a read and see what all the fuss was about. It seems there is an online version in PDF format (for those of us that is keen to read it digitally) otherwise a hard copy version of the book can be easily found at the National Library Board.
So what’s the book about? I don’t really know except that the title suggests a reworking or re-look at the way we view work and how to make work the same but putting in the same amount of effort and time into it. The best part about the book is that it challenges you to make what you do now much better so that you can still have time to spend doing the things that mean the most for you. Like for myself, I have been thinking about spending more time with family and spending more time at home. Alas the nature of my work requires me to spend time at work. So the challenge here for me is to manage my time in such a way that I still achieve the things that I set out to do, as well as have more time to do the things that I want to do.
I also found out that there is the audio version of the book on YouTube. Isn’t YouTube awesome? So now I can listen to is and read it at the same time. Hopefully I will understand what Tim is trying to get across, and hopefully I will also be able to get towards that ideal in my mind.
If you haven’t got a book to read, maybe you should consider reading this book.
