Four Hour Work Week (FHWW) summary - Dec 29th 2007
Sunday, December 30, 2007 6:34 PM
Six of us -- Chloe, Victoria, Eva, Dave, Lian, and myself -- met at Starbucks yesterday and had a wonderful conversation with some fascinating reflections on the principles of The Four Hour Work Week. I got quite a lot of inspiration and the others expressed the same sentiment.
We missed some of you who RSVP'd. I'm assuming it was due to the holidays (and not because you couldn't find us on the second floor). Email me at [address removed] if you did have problems finding us.
Principles we discussed were: bamboo analogy of success (things seem like they take a long time to get started but once the roots are in place, the plant just grows like anything), leveraging instead of doing, being the toll taking troll, teaching people not just to fish, but to teach, and money making as an expression of creativity.
Concepts we had went over: escaping the 9-5 rut, creating a money making machine, honing in on our passion among several ideas, owning our dreams, and marketing our ideas.
Resources that were brought up: "Parable of the Pipeline", "Rich Dad Poor Dad", "The Power of Now", "The World is Flat", and "Isagenix", "urbandictionary.com", and translation engines like "translate.google.com" and "babelfish.av.com".
Time savers we discussed: putting our files on the Internet, shopping online, using speaker phones/headsets, downloading audiobooks (from NYPL), electric scooters, freshdirect.com, online bill pay, flashdrives, and getfriday.com for virtual assistance.
I'll send another email to everyone with details for our next meetup, including our opt-in homework assignments. Good to talk with those of you who attended, and look forward to future discussions and development of our muse and lifestyle.
