Spending almost 25% of a whole work week with Timothy Ferriss (45 minutes in his case, since he’s the author of the highly inspirational book ‘Four Hour Work week), was a complete privilege!
I was happy to find out that we’re on the same site when it comes to the concept of work. Although sometimes misunderstood on this, Tim is not aiming for people to quit working or be inactive, he’s very passionate to help people maximizing the time and energy they spend on the things they love. And that can be work as well!
Tim hates to see that so many talented and valuable people waste their time on things they dislike, but which they think they need to do in order to secure finances. His contribution – with the book and blog – is to teach many short cuts and tricks to prevent work for work’s sake and free time to do what you love.
In the interview, Tim gives an interesting insights in how he organizes his own life. Listen to his dreamlining charts for the next months and more distant future. He shares some topics from his new book, an exciting hacker’s guide to the human body (Becoming Super Human) that will be published autumn 2010.
He also shares his thoughts on the projects on education, both in the U.S. and abroad, in which he is involved, in association with www.roomtoread.org and www.donorschoose.org

Thanks to Tim, and to Boris and Patrick of The Next Web to give me this opportunity!
