Another take on the 4-Hour Workweek

Tim Ferriss’ seminal book on rethinking work and living an independent, self-determined life always is worth another look.

On his blog SpartanTraveller Clayton Cornell wrote a rather lengthy but very insightful post about the Myth of the 4-Hour Workweek and the very practical implications such a groundbreaking lifestyle change has.

Digital nomadism, travelling the world, working from anywhere sure sounds like fun but it’s easier said than done. Not only does it require determination and hard work but also very mundane obstacles like getting a working WiFi connection in your coffee shop of choice tend to get in the way of working productively.

Clayton’s post does away with common myths and misconceptions about the 4-Hour Workweek. In fact, the 4-Hour Workweek in Tim Ferriss’ own words isn’t even about working just 4 hours per week but about maximizing output per hour worked. The ‘4-Hour Workweek’ actually is just a marketing term that came about by AB testing!

What the 4-Hour Workweek actually is about is

  • goal-setting and defining what you expect from life
  • maximizing productivity and renouncing work for work’s sake

Anyway, the post really is worth the read and the blog has many more useful tips for digital nomads and productivity hackers alike.
