    We all know the "4-hour workweek" and reading the fastlane, MJ doesn't think too highly of it. Me neither, to be honest. At least not regarding business.

    However, I think there are some projects where investing 4 hours a week actually gets you somewhere.

    As a thought experiment, I came up with things which I typically don't invest more than 4 hours a week in and make significant progress:

    -Taekwondo (probably most martial arts)
    -Gym
    -Photography

    What's your 4-hour-week projects?

    I'd imagine I spend somewhere around 4-hours each week cooking, not including making food for the sake of survival. I'm always shocked at how many grown men and women I meet who couldn't cook a single dish that could be served at a dinner party, it's embarrassing.

    Cooking is a fantastic skill, incredibly rewarding and can help you to make new friends and partnerships because it's far more personal than going to eat at a restaurant.

    Great topic...

    Reading!
    Stairmaster/Cardio!
    Swimming!
    And maybe a little educational TV on History or some other channel not tainted by political BS.

    Gym definitely!
    Reading
    Cooking
    Organising experiences (if you spend 4 hrs a week to look for new places, experiences and things to do, you might be amazed what you can do, even in your 30 day vacation)

    Love where this thread is going

    - Online Courses Like Lynda/Udemy (any subject but my flavor of the month right now is setting up your own home server)
    - Dog Training (got a new pup)
    - Meditating

    1. Sim Racing - Trains my mind, improves my driving ability and gets me prepared to go racing in real life.

    2. Gym - 4 hours a week of intense working out can be really tough. Though I spend much more time travelling to the gym and far more time recovering :p

    While this is true, those are not real 4 hour a week TF style projects.

    It is about spending 4 hours a week to sustain the business. Authors of a fro dummies book would be a good example. They might have spent years learning the craft, months writing the book and now they just publish and collect the license cheques, that could be 4 hours a week.

    Remember TF likes infoproducts (the lockpicking videos and set on here or YouTube content creators are other examples that fit with the 4HW

    I follow why MJ dislikes the people who think they can only put 4 hours in a nd get the result, but that's not in TF book. It is about making time rather than wealth the fruit of your money tree.

    The fastlane version might be to have multiple small business like that rather than one big one.

    Learning about correct breathing and posture, checking out The Alexander Technique, seems like the goodness can overflow in other areas of life

    Meditation, in my opinion the single most important tool for self development. If you continue to meditate for 4 hours a week for years on, you will certainly grow in your inner experience.
