Are You Living For A 4-Hour Workweek?

Do you think a 4-hour workweek is even possible? I’ve read Tim Ferriss’ book The 4-Hour Workweek. I thought the book was solid and practical emphasizing using the Pareto 80/20 principle and optimizing your work. Even Tim has mentioned that he chose the title because it performed the best on Google Adwords.

Are you living for a 4-hour workweek?

I want to challenge you here on this. If you despise what you are doing so much now that you only want to work for 4 hours a week on it, should you strongly consider completely changing what you are doing for a living? Look, if you are actually doing what you love and enjoy, does it truly feel like work? Nope. It doesn’t. So you should be focused on working through the process of determining what you enjoy doing and get after it. If you aren’t enjoying your network marketing business or your affiliate marketing online, then change what you are doing.

Learn to love the grind…

One of my mentors, Tai Lopez, was talking about this very thing. You have to love what you do. Sometimes, it’s not going to be easy, but you have to discover how to love grinding it out. In life, in business, with your health. Grind, grind, grind… I used to want things to be easy. But not anymore. Nothing worth going after is “easy”. You have to put the hours, miles, work into it. You have to want it and keep going after it. If you are looking for some 4-hours to doing anything, you are crazy. No business is built doing that. You have to suck it up and get the eye of the tiger with your business. Stop whining and searching for the easy way out. Stop making excuses.

Was it easy to put a man on the moon?

No. Did people put a lot of time and money figuring out how to do it? Yes. Is your problem/challenge as hard as putting someone on the moon? Nope. Not even close. Then stop looking for an excuse to stop and get going. You need to put this into perspective so you can have the right frame of mind when you are jumping out to tackle that challenge. For years, people did not think it was possible to break the 4-minute mile… then it was broken and others started doing it… it was completely a mindset shift of knowing that it could be done, that made it actually possible in the minds of others.

So what is your 4-minute mile? What do you think right now that is not possible in your mind? Having a successful business online? Building a network marketing business of your own? Your own 6-figure affiliate marketing business online that breaks you free from your mindless day job? What is it that is holding you back?

You aren’t going to get to the 4-hour workweek and if you do, you probably don’t want to in your mind. This is not how you will build a successful business online or offline. It’s just not possible working that little…

I am wondering what would have happened to me if some fluent talker had converted me to the theory of the eight-hour day and convinced me that it was not fair to my fellow workers to put forth my best efforts in my work. I am glad that the eight-hour day had not been invented when I was a young man. If my life had been made up of eight-hour days, I do not believe I could have accomplished a great deal. This country would not amount to as much as it does if the young men of fifty years ago had been afraid that they might earn more than they were paid for. – Thomas Edison

Think about where you are going to be in the future. Let that propel you to greatness in your mind and how all the hours of effort that you poured into your business will be worth it. It’s worth exploring… for at least 4 hours… maybe more.
