Tim Ferriss is a well-known American entrepreneur, investor, author, and public speaker. He is most known for his ultra-popular books. Tim is a man who appeared on top of the best-seller lists of USA Today, New York Times, Wall Street Journal and many others.
His brand and his teachings are mostly based on his first book: “The 4-Hour Workweek”. This bestseller stayed on top of the charts for a long time, and it is cited countless times across the web, television, and other types of media. Tim is a multi-talented, incredibly smart entrepreneur, working on his projects and collaborating with brands such as Facebook, Uber, and Evernote. He has an incredibly popular podcast, TV series, two more ultra-successful books, and a website which attracts multi-million visits per month.
Tim is a perfect example of a successful person who got out of the rat race, reached for the stars, and made it. He was stuck in the corporate life, working from 9 to 5, just to realize that he’s getting nowhere. (Being stuck in the job you don’t like, for a lousy pay – sounds familiar?)
Tim manages to succeed no matter what problem or question he tackles. Speaking multiple languages, mastering dozens of skills in record time (deconstructed and presented on his TV show) all stand in Tim’s biography. He is a person who looks to solve problems in a unique way, and a person who never backs down in front of a problem. Since young age (Tim was born in 1977), he was a fighter, a critical thinker, and an adaptive genius. Lifestyle design is his passion, and besides a bestseller in business and self-help industry, his fitness book, 4-Hour Body had the same success. (in this book, Tim deconstructed the perfect way to gain muscle, lose fat, and become a better version of yourself)
Tim Ferris held numerous motivational speeches, alongside having dozens of very successful projects in his life. He is a remarkable person; his thinking and his quotes will the way your think, and the way you live your life.
Great article Dejan, thanks! (And good choice of quotes!)
I especially like this one:
‘What we fear doing most is usually what we most need to do.’
It’s a deep one.
I really like Tim Ferriss’ approach to life and productivity.
He focuses on avoiding distractions, useless/low impact tasks, working on the 80/20. He’s also an expert for asking (others and himself), good questions like, for example, ‘What would it look like if it was easy?’.
Or, ‘How can I achieve my 10 year old plan in the next 6 months?’
Also, I was wondering if I can link to an article I created about Tim Ferriss? If it’s not appropriate to post that here, please let me know.
Here’s the link just in case.
But you are the average of the five people you associate with most, so do not underestimate the effects of your pessimistic, unambitious, or disorganized friends.
