The Four Hour Work Week
Comprising the four sections of the book, D.E.A.L. represents Tim's plan for how to get you out of your monotonous everyday struggle, and into your ideal lifestyle.
D is for Definition - This section addresses specifically where you currently are in life, economically, whether or not you feel regret for the business choices you have made to end up where you are at the moment, and whether or not changing your current lifestyle is worth the risk.
E is for Elimination - Here Tim deals with simplification of the workload and how best to remove stress from the everyday grind.
A is for Automation - After defining what you want and eliminating the wasteful processes of work, Ferriss moves to Automation, demonstrating how best to organize a business into a self-propelled machine, only needing someone to step in now and then to make minor adjustments.
L is for Liberation - Finally, Ferriss discusses the fruits of your labor, sharing how best to now spend the remaining a 164 hours of your week. From skydiving to tango dancing, Tim recommends some great activities to try out.
