Authenticity, Productivity, and the Four Hour Work Week
In Episode 4, Dustin, Andre, Jonathan, and I discuss authenticity, identity, money, and the Four Hour Work Week. You’re catching the second part of the conversation.
In this episode, you’ll hear about…
- Why it’s important to look at the Four Hour Work Week’s principles and not necessarily the showmanship
- Why living the unexamined life can be more challenging than a lot of people realize
- How it’s really important to get comfortable with space
- How taking your work seriously through productivity systems while not honoring your personal stuff makes us less apt to take ourselves as seriously and alienates us from our work
