How was 2008 for You?

Did you have a wonderful 2008? Did you take steps to achieve your dreams? Did you come any closer to being where you wanted in any way?

If you’re like 95% of most Americans, the answer is a disappointing “no”. Most people spend their whole lives going to work and watching TV, and never make any real progress to going where they really want to go most. It seems a bit of a waste, a bit sad, to live in the best country in the world and see people waiting to die, stuck in an office cubicle cell.

So what’s the solution? One of the goals of this blog is to help people find solutions to improve their life. Today’s solution is a wonderful post by Tim Ferris, of 4-Hour Workweek fame.

Have you read The 4-Hour Workweek? It’s a wonderful book that we highly recommend. It gives you step-by-step strategies to reduce the 40, 60 or 80 hour workweek to just four hours. Impossible you say? Many people love to judge without really knowing. I hallucinate most of the people who say it won’t work didn’t even bother to read it.

So what does this mean for you? It’s only two weeks into 2009, and we’re just getting started. If you’ve already abandoned your new years resolutions and wonder what happened, then make 2009 different and better! I suggest you do something different. And a great thing to do is to read this book. You can check out his blog and see all the wonderful ideas he has to achieve anything in this short life.
