Announcing a new event for Lifestyle Design - Living the Four Hour Work Week!

What: Lifestyle Design - Living the Four Hour Work Week // sponsored by

When: Saturday, February 2, 12:00 PM

Where: Starbucks 2nd floor, at the corner of 39th Street and 8th Avenue, Manhattan. Please RSVP.

Who should come: Those who've read, or are reading, The Four Hour Work Week by Tim Ferriss. You should be applying these principles now, or helping others apply these principles now. We'll be using concepts from the book during discussion.

Why: We're committed to helping each other design a lifestyle that we want to live (rather than one we feel we have to live).

Sunday ( is generously sponsoring refreshments for the event.

Event Description:

Homework assignment by 2/2/08:
--A repeat from last time -- to read, or start reading, the "Four Hour Work Week" and determine a single muse for yourself you'd like to discuss (*even if it's not your final muse).
--Research future venues, considering price, location, consistency of availability
--Future homework assignments will include a single actionable step chosen by each of us to progress our dreamlines.

Comfort challenge by 2/2/08:
--Get five people to give up their seats for us in the subway. I'll throw in a couple of guidelines:
1) They have to be older than us (can't be too easy)
2) They can't be sick or disabled (we're not that cruel)

FHWW concept for discussion 2/2/08:
--"Defining our fear and worst case scenarios"

NOTE: Spending time on the above is never a requirement for attending -- they are for ourselves. Regardless, spending time on the above is a signal to ourselves how strong our intent to live the FHWW is.
