Do You Want a 4-Hour Workweek?

Written by Joey Daoud

On August 20, 2008

Have you wanted to try out Tim Ferriss’ The 4-Hour Workweek, or David Allen’s Getting Things Done?

Want a little motivation? How’s this. One feature I wanted to cover in the life hacking documentary is to follow someone who tries the techniques and systems found in these books to see if they work. We’d check in on you every now and then to see how things are working out.

Ideally you (or someone you know) would be slightly disorganized and want to fix that. You should also be open (and able) to trying out everything in 4-Hour Work Week, such as outsourcing your life, automating tasks, and ideally getting down to working 4 hours a week.

You should also be comfortable with a camera crew following you around.

As for location, I’m based out of Tallahassee, FL. I could travel to most major cities in the southeast, such as Jacksonville, Atlanta, Orlando, or even Miami.

So if you think you’re the perfect candidate, shoot me an email at lifehackdoc [at] gmail [dot] com.

Also, if you’re already working a 4-hour workweek or have hacked your life to the extreme, I’d love to talk to you as well, regardless of location. And if you’re not in the southeast but you think you’re the most amazing, most perfect person, let’s talk.

This is an old post from the creation of the documentary project You 2.0, a series chronicling the beginning of the modern productivity movement. You can learn more about it here.

    Whereas I don’t think I am the most amazing person, I am “kinda a big deal” 😛

    As I said, I am someone who is typing this “in my underwear” (it’s cold so am in sweats actually) and is going through the 4 hour work week and applying every single principle.

    I am recording all this on my blog and on Youtube in written form and video form and you can check out my journey and my vids here:

    I am an ex-film school student and so am more than willing to be followed around and work under your guidance.
