Welcome to The 100-Hour Workweek: NEVER Escape Your Job, Live Alone, and Join the New Poor.
I am sure you have heard of the 4-hour workweek by Tim Ferriss… well I am going to show you how to be so un-productive that you will need to work a 100 hour week just to pay the bills.
I will show you how:
* You can get stuck in a dead-end job for life
* Live alone in crappy shared accommodation
* Be a member of the new poor
* Be pitied by everyone you meet
* & much more…
Lesson 1: DON’T use technology such as PDAs to help you become more efficient and organised. You can’t be bothered learning how to use a PDA? Perfect, now you can stay un-organised for life. Welcome to the world of 100 hour workweeks.
Lesson 2: Try and force yourself to be creative, even if you cannot. Are you having one of those days where you have writer’s block and a lack of creativity? You could simply move to another task and come back to it when you are ready, but if you want to enter the world of 100 hour workweeks then you should get more and more stressed and force yourself to be creative, even if this means staring a the screen for hours.
Lesson 3: Spend as much time as possible at sites like YouTube.com and Digg.com Your employer would be so impressed when they hear that you ahve been spending 3 hours per day on YouTube, I bet they will promote you to a 100 hour workweek in no time. Well done! Always remember, YouTube MUST come before doing something useful.
Lesson 4: Don’t do anything outside your comfort zone. Going outside your comfort zone is scary, it is probably best to stay in your comfort zone and not push yourself.
Lesson 5: NEVER have fun. There is a reason it is called “work”, if you truly want to join the “new poor” then you should aim to find a job that will bore you. The more repetitive the better.
Congratulations, you are now 5 steps closer to being trapped in the world of 100 hour workweeks. Follow these 5 simple steps and you to can have a heart attack before you reach 50, and with any luck you will be able to retire at 86.
