Description de l'ouvrage

3 avril 2008

Tim Ferriss has trouble defining what he does for a living. Depending on when you ask this controversial Princeton University guest lecturer, he might answer:

'I race motorcycles in Europe'

'I ski in the Andes'

'I scuba dive in Panama'

'I dance tango in Buenos Aires'

He has spent more than five years learning the secrets of the 'New Rich', a fast-growing subculture that has abandoned the 'deferred-life plan' and instead mastered the new currencies - time and mobility - to create a new way of living. Why wait a lifetime for your retirement when you can enjoy luxury now?

Whether your dream is escaping the rat race, experiencing first class world travel, earning a monthly five-figure income with no management, or just living more and working less, this book is the blueprint. Join Tim Ferriss as he teaches you:

- How to outsource your life to overseas virtual assistants for $5 per hour and do whatever you want

- How blue chip escape artists travel the world without quitting their jobs

- How to eliminate 50% of your work in 48 hours using the principles of a forgotten Italian economist

- How exchange your career for life for short work bursts and frequent 'mini-retirements'

- How to train your boss to value performance over presence, or kill your job (or company) if it's beyond repair

- How to cultivate selective ignorance - and create time - with a low-information diet

- How to get free housing worldwide and airfare at 50-80% off

- How to fill the void and create a meaningful life after removing work and the office

Learn about this and more to live the life you want - now.

Cautions and Comparisons

How to Burn $1,000,000 a night

These individuals have riches just as we say that we “have a fever,” when really the fever has us.

—seneca (4 b.c.–a.d. 65)

I also have in mind that seemingly wealthy, but most terribly impoverished class of all, who have accumulated dross, but know not how to use it, or get rid of it, and thus have forged their own golden or silver fetters.

—henry david thoreau (1817–1862)

1:00 a.m. cst, 30,000 feet over las vegas

His friends, drunk to the point of speaking in tongues, were asleep. It was just the two of us now in first-class. He extended his hand to introduce himself, and an enormous—Looney Tunes enormous—diamond ring appeared from the ether as his fingers crossed under my reading light.

Mark was a legitimate magnate. He had, at different times, run practically all the gas stations, convenience stores, and gambling in South Carolina. He confessed with a half smile that, in an average trip to Sin City, he and his fellow weekend warriors might lose an average of $500,000 to $1,000,000—each. Nice.

He sat up in his seat as the conversation drifted to my travels, but I was more interested in his astounding record of printing money.

“So, of all your businesses, which did you like the most?”

The answer took less than a second of thought.

“None of them.”

He explained that he had spent more than 30 years with people he didn’t like to buy things he didn’t need. Life had become a succession of trophy wives—he was on lucky number three—expensive cars, and other empty bragging rights. Mark was one of the living dead.

This is exactly where we don’t want to end up.

Apples and Oranges: A Comparison

So, what makes the difference? What separates the New Rich, characterized by options, from the Deferrers (D), those who save it all for the end only to find that life has passed them by?

It begins at the beginning. The New Rich can be separated from the crowd based on their goals, which reflect very distinct priorities and life philosophies.

Note how subtle differences in wording completely change the necessary actions for fulfilling what at a glance appear to be similar goals. These are not limited to business owners. Even the first, as I will show later, applies to employees.

D:To work for yourself.

NR:To have others work for you.

D:To work when you want to.

NR:To prevent work for work’s sake, and to do the minimum necessary for maximum effect (“minimum effective load”).

D:To retire early or young.

NR:To distribute recovery periods and adventures (mini-retirements) throughout life on a regular basis and recognize that inactivity is not the goal. Doing that which excites you is.

D:To buy all the things you want to have.

NR:To do all the things you want to do, and be all the things you want to be. If this includes some tools and gadgets, so be it, but they are either means to an end or bonuses, not the focus.

D:To be the boss instead of the employee; to be in charge.

NR:To be neither the boss nor the employee, but the owner. To own the trains and have someone else ensure they run on time.

D:To make a ton of money.

NR:To make a ton of money with specific reasons and defined dreams to chase, timelines and steps included. What are you working for?

D:To have more.

NR:To have more quality and less clutter. To have huge financial reserves but recognize that most material wants are justifications for spending time on the things that don’t really matter, including buying things and preparing to buy things. You spent two weeks negotiating your new Infiniti with the dealership and got $10,000 off? That’s great. Does your life have a purpose? Are you contributing anything useful to this world, or just shuffling papers, banging on a keyboard, and coming home to a drunken existence on the weekends?

D:To reach the big pay-off, whether IPO, acquisition, retirement, or other pot of gold.

NR:To think big but ensure payday comes every day: cash flow first, big payday second.

D:To have freedom from doing that which you dislike.

NR:To have freedom from doing that which you dislike, but also the freedom and resolve to pursue your dreams without reverting to work for work’s sake (W4W). After years of repetitive work, you will often need to dig hard to find your passions, redefine your dreams, and revive hobbies that you let atrophy to near extinction. The goal is not to simply eliminate the bad, which does nothing more than leave you with a vacuum, but to pursue and experience the best in the world.

Getting Off the Wrong Train

The first principle is that you must not fool yourself, and you are the easiest person to fool.

—richard p. feynman, Nobel Prize–winning physicist

Enough is enough. Lemmings no more. The blind quest for cash is a fool’s errand.

I’ve chartered private planes over the Andes, enjoyed many of the best wines in the world in between world-class ski runs, and lived like a king, lounging by the infinity pool of a private villa. Here’s the little secret I rarely tell: It all cost less than rent in the United States. If you can free your time and location, your money is automatically worth 3–10 times as much.

This has nothing to do with currency rates. Being financially rich and having the ability to live like a millionaire are fundamentally two very different things.

Money is multiplied in practical value depending on the number of W’s you control in your life: what you do, when you do it, where you do it, and with whom you do it. I call this the “freedom multiplier.”

Using this as our criterion, the 80-hour-per-week, $500,000-per-year investment banker is less “powerful” than the employed NR who works 1?4 the hours for $40,000, but has complete freedom of when, where, and how to live. The former’s $500,000 may be worth less than $40,000 and the latter’s $40,000 worth more than $500,000 when we run the numbers and look at the lifestyle output of their money.

Options—the ability to choose—is real power. This book is all about how to see and create those options with the least ef- fort and cost. It just so happens, paradoxically, that you can make more money—a lot more money—by doing half of what you are doing now.

So, Who Are the NR?

qThe employee who rearranges his schedule and negotiates a remote work agreement to achieve 90% of the results in one-tenth of the time, which frees him to practice cross-country skiing and take road trips with his family two weeks per month.

qThe business owner who eliminates the least profitable customers and projects, outsources all operations entirely, and travels the world collecting rare documents, all while working remotely on a website to showcase her own illustration work.

qThe student who elects to risk it all—which is nothing—to establish an online video rental service that delivers $5,000 per month in income from a small niche of HDTV aficionados, a two-hour-per-week side project that allows him to work full-time as an animal rights lobbyist.

The options are limitless, but each path begins with the same first step: replacing assumptions.

To join the movement, you will need to learn a new lexicon and recalibrate direction using a compass for an unusual world. From inverting responsibility to jettisoning the entire concept of “success,” we need to change the rules.

New Players for a New Game: Global and Unrestricted

'Turin,'Italy'

Civilization had too many rules for me, so I did my best to rewrite them.—Bill Cosby

As he rotated 360 degrees through the air, the deafening noise turned to silence. Dale Begg-Smith executed the backflip perfectly—skis crossed in an X over his head—and landed in the record books as he slid across the finish.

It was February 16, 2006, and he was now a mogul-skiing gold medalist at the Turin Winter Olympics. Unlike other full-time athletes, he will never have to return to a dead-end job after his moment of glory, nor will he look back at this day as the climax of his only passion. After all, he was only 21 years old and drove a black Lamborghini.

Born a Canadian and something of a late bloomer, Dale found his calling, an Internet-based IT company, at the age of 13. Fortunately, he had a more-experienced mentor and partner to guide him: his 15-year-old brother, Jason. Created to fund their dreams of standing atop the Olympic podium, it would, only two years later, become the third-largest company of its kind in the world.

While Dale’s teammates were hitting the slopes for extra sessions, he was often buying sake for clients in Tokyo. In a world of “work harder, not smarter,” it came to pass that his coaches felt he was spending too much time on his business and not enough time in training, despite his results.

Rather than choose between his business or his dream, Dale chose to move laterally with both, from either/or to both/and. He wasn’t spending too much time on his business; he and his brother were spending too much time with Canucks.

In 2002, they moved to the ski capital of the world, Australia, where the team was smaller, more flexible, and coached by a legend. Three short years later, he received citizenship, went head-to-head against former teammates, and became the third “Aussie” in history to win winter gold.

In the land of wallabies and big surf, Dale has since gone postal. Literally. Right next to the Elvis Presley commemorative edition, you can bu... --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

La thèse paradoxale de Tom Ferris est qu'on peut vivre une vie d'homme riche tout en travaillant peu. Et Ferris réussit le tour de force de rendre cette promesse crédible. Son idée repose sur un principe simple : pour ne travailler que quatre heures par semaines, vous devez développer une activité qui peut tourner sans vous. Pour y parvenir, il vous faut: 1) créer un commerce sur Internet, 2) automatiser tout ce qui peut l'être, et 3) déléguer le reste.

Les cinq raisons pour lesquelles j'ai eu un coup de coeur pour ce livre:
1) les chapitres sur l'efficacité personnelle dans lesquels Ferris explique comment passer moins de temps sur les tâches de travail pour en consacrer davantage à ses loisirs
2) les chapitres sur le lancement d'une activité de vente sur Internet. Tim Ferris explique très clairement et bien plus concrètement que biens d'autres livres comment monter son affaire: le démarrage, le produit, la promotion, la production, les livraisons, le service client, ... C'est un véritable guide au quotidien. On y trouve pleins d'astuces.
3) les chapitres sur l'externalisation des tâches: comment sous-traiter son service client ou la gestion de son agenda personnel
4) la capacité de Ferris à motiver ses lecteurs. Cela tient à son écriture sobre, tonique et optimiste
5) la personnalité atypique de Ferris: champion de Tango, champion de box Thaï, cybermarchand et acteur dans une série télé à Honk-Kong. On apprend toujours quelque chose en regardant le monde à travers le regard d'une personne hors-norme.
