Tim Ferriss on personal mantras, work-life separation and the future of flexible careers | Competitive Edge | Scoop.it
Tim Ferris, author of The 4-Hour Workweek, weighs in on work-life balance, dependance on technology and the future of the career landscape.

There's no shortage of motivational career and lifestyle advice out there, but one of the most ubiquitous presences in the space over the past few years is surely Timothy Ferriss, author of the acclaimed 4-Hour book series and the de facto face of a concept (and movement) aptly dubbed "Lifestyle Design."

For all intents and purposes, Lifestyle Design is a more modern incarnation of the "American Dream" — but with a focus on leading a happy, healthy and fulfilling life instead of working yourself into the grave.

Marc Kneepkens's insight:

Humor, flexibility, compromise, innovation, will bring much more respect than being defensive and referring to the 'rules'.

Try to think with the goals of the company in mind, and see what you can do to contribute. Again: stop the defensive thinking.
