Oops I Maybe I Work More Than 4-Hours

I purchased the book "The 4-Hour Workweek by Timothy Ferriss," from Amazon.com to read on my Kindle PC, I do NOT own a Kindle, and I read on my computer. Well, that did not work, so I went to the Torrent Systems and downloaded a PDF file of the book so I could work.



Is this work, it needed to be done?

Guatemala has this trend; they are using people dressed up like characters to advertise, I enjoy this type of advertising more than their Tigo Cell phone vans with incredibly noisy loudspeaker systems.

Have to Work
I am calling up tons of people using Skype.com and asking their opinions, I am working on this book and I know the more opinions I have, the more confusion I am able to work on, and the more clarifications I can explain.

I think I am doing something almost the same as Timothy Ferris in the 4-Hour workweek, so I decided; I need to read his book. Nevertheless, I have got many opinions and here was a dialog.

CHAT ON YAHOO MESSENGER:
Andy:
I would like to talk to you about the 4-hour workweek and my book I am writing
James:
Hey Andy. When would be a good time?
Andy:
I do not work... hehehe
When you can?
James: I will be home later this morning and I can call via Skype.



Ironic Conversations
Almost everyone I respect and has read this book is probably works too much, they all love the book and I am sitting here writing this post thinking. (I have not talked to James yet...)

"Gee, I am 100 percent sure this book has some great ideas."
For example:

The New Rich: (Defined by Timothy Ferris)
"The New Rich (NR) are those who abandon the deferred-life plan and create luxury lifestyles in the present using the currency of the New Rich: time and mobility."

Ok, I admit, I have an over-abundance of time and mobility; I must be the "Super Rich."

Ok, I lie, can I really say reading a book is work? I think in reality, I cannot remember the last time I worked, I cannot remember the last time I did something I did not want to do.

I mean, work could be defined as doing something we do not want to do, and everything we want to do is fun, hobbies, projects, enjoyable pastimes or luxury.

I have been having this truly cathartic moment, I have slowly realized, I sort of enjoy washing my clothes, I enjoy doing small things around my room, even though I can easily afford to pay to have my clothes cleaned, it is enjoyable, what is not enjoyable to me is getting bad values. I enjoy doing well at things, I enjoy buying well.

Talking with these many people on Skype, I also realized, oops, I have this secret life, because the name of this site is "Hobo," I leave out my luxury, I do not talk about it, I hide it, then I get sort of angry when people think I live like a pig, but I never truly explain how I live. Well, that is going to change, I am going to stop pretending I am living like a Hobo. This is the joke of writing this book, I realized I went out truly believing I was going to be poor traveler, and really, I have become part of the "Super Rich." Hmm, I would get an ugly feeling calling this the "New Rich" with the (NR) thing for trendy ideas. There are 1000’s of people doing what I do, I am for sure not the new one to figure out how to live this (NR) lifestyle, there is nothing new about it, there are tons of ex-draft dodgers from the Vietnam war here, that never stopped.

Ok, what is real, I have learned how to make money, and not work. I mean, I make money and never do something I do not want to do, or something like that.

I am trudging my way through this book, I am on page 17, I am not going to give my true feeling or opinions, this is one of them books, where maybe you should read, I do not think it can hurt you. I am sure I will harvest some good idea, but then again, this is work for me.
