A Book of Life Hacks
Most of the innovation, creativity, and awe-inspiring performances have been completed by a very small demographic. What’s worse (for the layman) is that these people have multi-faceted success (i.e., repeatable greatness in a completely different paradigm). So that begs the question and premise of this book: What are the commonalities amongst the uncommon individuals.
From simple meditation to a dedicated daily workout and from books that encourage greatness to daily habits that enable success, Tim Ferriss has interviewed and catalogued “the greats” of contemporary society coated with lessons from the ancients.
We all have the ability to do something that demands pause and recollection from others, but only some of us actually do something of noteworthiness. Listening to and/or reading this book is merely opening a door to something. Implementing the precepts that are contained within is the necessary second step to inching closer to one’s own personal destiny.
