He was not exactly popular in his previous work places because of his ability to complete a given task using his own rules and regulations resulting in a faster turnaround time. Timothy Ferriss used the rest of his time to practice his fighting skills because he’s a professional fighter. In ‘The 4 Hour Work Week’, he mentions his struggles – how he got fired – and still rose from the situation to shine and prosper.
