Can you answer the hardest question on the planet?

My four-year-old took me out for a walk today.  She rode her scooter (no brakes–what were they thinking?!)  I kept up on foot.

After finding my MP3 player in my jacket pocket, I popped in an earbud and pushed play blindly.  Ah, Timothy Ferriss’s The 4-Hour Work Week, a book that straightens out all your bad ideas about working for work’s sake and letting your job walk all over you.  I’d had it on “fast”.  Matched my pace.

Nothing is not spiritual.  We all walk the same spiritual journey, though we choose different words to describe ourselves and what we find.  Whether your approach to life is random, religious or atheistic, it’s the same journey, same experiences, same tasks, same discoveries.

Chapter 15 of Ferriss’s book is quite spiritual.  After he spends most of the book curing you of your job and a lot of limited, passive thinking, he is then almost obligated to help you answer to one of the hardest, scariest questions on the planet:

“If you had all the time and money in the world, what would you DO all day?”

Think about it.  (Oh c’mon, could you really do that for more than a month without getting bored?) Where would you live and how and with whom?  What would you do to make a difference?  What’s your favorite issue or personal mission?  This book is full of resources to help you really do that.

4HrWkWeekCOVERIf you’ve made enough spiritual progress to get a sense of yourself and what you were made or meant to do, then check out this book for laughs if not for perspective.  It’s a fun read.  Get a copy here through my amazon affiliate link (thank you muchly):
