What is Tim Ferriss known for?

Tim Ferriss is recognized for many things: his award-winning podcast, his many speaking engagements, his blog. Arguably, though, what he's best known for is his concept of and book about the 4-hour workweek. One of the main precepts of this idea is to work far more efficiently so you can spend less time working and avoid what Ferriss calls "the deferred life plan," which means your life is filled with work until you reach the point of retirement.

"The 4-Hour Workweek" allows for travel and living more while working less. It's an idea that resonated strongly when the book came out in 2007, and continues to inspire more than a decade later.
