    Ha ha. Good little read. Some really interesting ideas in there. But, come on dude, people don't exist just to make your life better and easier. Maybe that's my "F" side kicking in but, if I remember correctly, he seemed to give off an aura like, "just outsource the stupid work overseas so that you can go on another ski vacation." I remember thinking, "well yessss, but......also no!"

    Currently reading the Borne Identity. Different from the film in many minor ways, not read enough to rate it yet, but it's well written and worth the read from what I've read so far.

    Isn't this how every corporation works?
    The owner just chills while the money rolls in and other people are happy working for him because they have a job that pays the bills. The main message of 4HWW and PDRD is in the end, you just have to choose which side you want to be on. It is mainly about the mindset and stopping to trade your time for money.

    Hmmm. Well, it does work like this sometimes I suppose. You can be a capitalist or you can be a provider of labor. I see the distinction. But, this may sound strange coming from a THINKER , but I wanted the author to see people more as people rather than just commodities for his gain. I mean, maybe that's the kind of thinking that a lot of corporate bigwigs have, but just because you can treat people like that and make millions, doesn't mean that you should. It also doesn't mean that you can't make millions while treating people right. I myself want to be on the capitalist side of things, but I also have my own idea of how to do that ethically. I'm not saying that he is unethical (I've never met the guy and I wouldn't come to that conclusion without spending some time with him), but at some point the book started to go from "dynamic ideas" to "big machine pumping out products while author is on ski slopes". That's not dynamic to me. That's robotic and, well, kind of selfish. Just doing what is necessary to get back out on the slopes. It reminds me a bit of my signature (see below). I really did enjoy the book, but I expected more of him in terms of "taking care of his people" and stuff like that.

    I also think this happens way less often than most people think. 90% of the people "rolling it in" are not "chilling" - they're the most hard working people you'll find. Sitting in the Bahamas sipping on a mai tai with an umbrella in it is a pipe dream. They have the finances to do it if they wanted to, but that's not the kind of approach that got them where they are in the first place. They work hard and play hard, but these people usually aren't as lazy as I am.
