Okay, I’ve held my tongue for a while now. I’ve asked people who are into him to explain what they see in him. I attempted to see it. I attempted some of his suggested exercises. But I can’t hold it in any longer.
TIM FERRIS, I HATE YOU! HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATE!
1.If Tim Ferriss wasn’t already on my sh*t list to begin with, he is now. He totally ripped off Katt Williams about haters! Sure it’s all nicey nicey white boy business lingo, but the point is the same that Katt’s been making better and funnier and more succiently for yeeeeeeeeeeeeeears (with more cussin’). Booooooooooooo!
If you want to get in touch with your star playa, go here (again, lots of cussin’)
2. I tried taking a friend’s general advice about reading crap (i.e. read it in the bathroom where you crap anyway) and I can’t even get through the book there. I’m sure he’ll be thrilled to have me among his haters, I can’t even articulate talking about him without getting into a frothing feminist rage.
3. None of his teachings that I’ve read have had *any* bearing on my life. He has *no* clue what it means to be really honestly middle class though the re-write claims to. He is so chock full of privilege it makes me want to kick him in the shins. I tried outsourcing small projects. You know what? I COULDN’T AFFORD IT! Not even using third world labor, etc. He slimes his way past the rules, he treats everyone in his life as a lamprey time sucker (yeah, I’m sure that makes you an awesome friend, family member, etc), he claims everyone can be part of the new rich by working less but um I’m paid BY THE PIECE LIKE A FREELANCE SWEATSHOP LABORER so how *that’s* going to work is beyond me, he claims to not be part of the “rich walking dead” but is constantly talking about goals such as getting an ASTIN MARTIN and how everyone could use an extra 500K a year. Sure, it’s true, everyone could. But man, I am *no where* never a six figure salary. So okay Timmy, for us hourly people who have no commission how exactly are we supposed to make more with less work? If I pranced up to my boss in this economy demanding that, you know what I’d be? FIRED. It’s all well and good for him to tell us to do that when he’s made MILLIONS in a good economy to fall back on. I don’t have shit to fall back on but my skills. I’m grateful I have enough skills to support myself without disability, with fibromyalgia but none of my skills are going to net me a posh salaried job that I could manage to work without killing myself in the process which doesn’t seem to land me in the “new rich” category.
That is all.
