Tim Ferriss tells me how to make a million in 60 days

July 5, 2011

Picture this guys and gals, it had been a tough week. Html coding had taken over my life. I had to ask myself, whoever conquered Americana using a fancy bit of code..? Apart from Bill Gates… and Steve Jobs… and lots of other people whose software makes the world go round.

I was feeling a bit under the weather, a bit existential, a bit like that American Werewolf in London just before he turns into a manslaughtering and unattractive, mythical beast. So in a time of crisis, I did the only thing I could, I went to have a cup of tea at the centre of my universe, the Summit Cafe, San Francisco.

It was there that I sat – half coding, half existentialising – opposite a rather attractive couple and a young and lovely entrepreneuress. After half an hour of having a blazing row with my flickr account about why it refuses to reduce the file size of my photos when we’re in public, the lovely entrepreneuress turned to me and asked if the man sitting next to us – one half of the attractive couple – was none other than TIM FERRISS?

The Tim Ferriss who wrote The Four Hour Work Week… The Tim Ferriss who leaves you high on the possibilities of life… The Tim Ferriss who partly inspired my crazy trip and whose book became an encylopedia/comfort blanket of common sense and encouragement after I left my job.

You know where this is going don’t you? You don’t need any more manipulative prose and violins playing in the background to figure out that my narrative took a turn for the better.

So I introduced myself to Tim Ferriss and asked how he would go about doing my 20-item to do list in 60 days.

I even have video evidence…
