Get the pen and paper ready for this one. Tim Ferriss is in the house!
In case you didn’t know (I’m not sure how you couldn’t), Tim is the author of the #1 NYT bestsellers The 4-Hour Workweek and The 4-Hour Body, an angel investor in Facebook, StumbleUpon, and Twitter, and was called “the world’s best guinea pig” by Newsweek (which he takes as a compliment).
And, he is the author of the new book: The 4-Hour Chef: The Simple Path to Cooking Like a Pro, Learning Anything, and Living the Good Life (affiliate).
Now, here is the thing you have to know. Tim is a MASTER at learning how to do things, doing them, and teaching us all the shortcuts (what could be cooler?).
Today, we discuss how you can apply these principles to really anything – be it your business, your life, etc. Maybe you want to pick up a new business skill (or a few) or learn how to…I don’t know…play the guitar. Whatever. Tim’s formula works for pretty much anything you can dream up.
And the interviewer in me has a special warm place in my heart for one of the big ways Tim learns (spoiler alert: he interviews experts). And he has some amazing questions he asks experts to get the information he is looking for (feel free to steal his ideas/questions).
Enjoy and hop into comments below. I’ll see you there in there.
