Reflections on the impact of the ‘4-Hour Workweek’ 15 years later

They had never read it. If they did, they would have found that it is a philosophical wake-up call disguised as a bunch of life hacks. The whole book is basically him channeling the energy of poet Mary Oliver and yelling, “Don’t waste your wild and precious life!”

When I read The 4 Hour Workweek in 2010, it had a profound impact on my life and trajectory.

Of course, I never believed I would work the literal 4 hour workweek, but the idea of questioning work and it’s role in my life was incredibly powerful.

I owe so much of my professional success today to Ferris and this book and it’s still relevant all of these years later.
