Yesterday afternoon I received more e-mails, Facebook messages, and Instagram messages than I’ve ever collectively received in one day. They all stemmed from an Instagram story I posted with a picture of The 4-Hour Workweek by Tim Ferris and the caption “Re-studying the book that got me out of the 9-5 grind”.
I shared it from my sunny backyard on a Tuesday afternoon, rather than from a cubicle. The only boss telling me what to do was myself. I was studying something not only out of utility, but for the joy of it. Basically, I modeled living life on my own terms and showied by example that I was thriving.
First of all, if you’ve never read the book, I highly suggest it, even if you like your 9-5 gig. (This is an affiliate link if you want tograb a copy)
Here’s why: it lays out, with practical questions and clearly defined steps, how to live life on purpose.
Not creating tasks for the sake of getting something done.
Not keeping yourself small by setting small goals.
Not wasting your freedom when you’ve found it.
A wise woman said to me the other day “…then I realized life is not a dress rehearsal and I booked [that thing]”.
We get one shot at this lifetime and we damn well better make the most of it. Live passionately, act with intent, and experience your life on purpose.
Take one step today. Bonus points if you aim at something so big it nearly seems impossible.
PS – I hear you guys and I’m coming to answer your calls. In the coming weeks I’m putting together a system to support you in getting what you want. I want to share practical steps to transitioning from a job you had forever, planning the trip you’ve dreamt about, or creating a balanced lifestyle. Call it coaching if you want, but it’s support from my heart to you.
