Tim Ferriss has been listed as one of Fast Company‘s ‘Most Innovative Business People’ and one of Fortune‘s ‘40 under 40’. He is an early-stage technology investor/advisor (Uber, Facebook, Shopify, Duolingo, Alibaba, and 50+ others) and the author of four #1 New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestsellers, including The 4-Hour Workweek, The 4-Hour Body, The 4-Hour Chef and Tools of Titans. The Observer and other media have called Tim ‘the Oprah of audio’ due to the influence of The Tim Ferriss Show podcast, which is the first business/interview podcast to exceed 200 million downloads. Tim received his BA from Princeton University in 2000, where he focused on language acquisition and East Asian Studies. He developed his non-fiction writing with Pulitzer Prize winner John McPhee and formed his life philosophies under Nobel Prize winner Kenzaburo Oe. He is far dumber than both. Tim enjoys bear claws, chocolate croissants, writing ‘About’ pages in third person and neglecting italics.

5.0 out of 5 stars It is ALL in the DOING
By Montana Santa on December 13, 2016
I've read so much success literature and most authors managed to squeeze 3 pages into 300.

Tim's work 'Tools of Titans' does the opposite and is one of the most - SCRATCH THAT IT IS THE MOST calorically dense advice/insight/tools written works I have ever read.

I know some of the 'Titans' he references (ex: Tony Robbins - long ago my wife an I used to help volunteer staff his programs) I say this not as 'Heck yah! I KNOW these guys' ... No, it is in a wonderful way that I can read something about and from someone I know AND STILL COME AWAY WITH A NEW INSIGHT!


As I read, re-read, jumped around, highlighted, underlined and feel asleep and woke up thinking about all that I found in Tim's book ... I felt had I MUST do this.

Background: I have been diagnosed with Parkinson's from exposure to Agent Orange and/or toxic water from Camp Lejeune. I have had multiple TBI. I have had 21 surgeries and ... my cervical spine is exhibiting the same signs as it did prior to my last (and botched) cervical spine surgery. I weigh 292 lbs ... though my caloric intake, according to Myfitnesspal dot come should be showing a 1.5 lb/week loss ... and yet, I have gained 60 some lbs in the past year.

(if you are the impatient type skip the next few paragraphs as this is background info)

My local Medical doctors shrug and either tell me 'Don't worry about it' - shorthand for dude, you are so SCREWED that ain't gonna be what gets ya!' OR they insist I am overeating despite my willingness to show them my nutrition logs.

I even went to Mayo clinic this past June ... a process that took 3 months to book. My wife and I sat down with the Doc on my first day and he liked at us like 'What the ____ are you doing here?" He cleared his throat and said "Well, I'm leaving for Germany in 6 hours to give a speech' (anyone know german cuss words to describe this ?)

So, somewhat discouraged I shuffled down for my blood draw and then went to scheduling to see what tests I had for the rest of my scheduled week.

Have you ever watched someone squirm when they have to give you really bad news ... but don't know how to say it? That was my experience watching the Lady at Mayo Clinic assigned to give me my week's schedule. The poor woman looked like a 2nd grader that had a seriously full bladder squirming in their seat.

She kept looking around to see if ANYONE could/would relive her of telling us and on realizing "Nope, i gotta tell this guy to go poo in his hat' she blurted out "YOUR NEXT APPOINT FOR THIS WEEK IS SCHEDULED FOR .... AUGUST 2ND"


Bottom line: Traditional Medicine has written me off. Which is fine ... as I have written them off too!

************** if you were skipping paragraphs please rejoin us here ********************

Good people of the Amazonian reading tribe ... I have to STRIKE THAT ... I MUST DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT


That is not hyperbole. That is not exaggeration. I believe this to be fact.

I placed photos of my scale ... and of my medicines (blurry so no label info shows) I take 21 some meds/day. Yes ... wayyyy too many! I am a 'pill-serf'


To that end, I pledge I will start blogging and logging my results as I work through Tim's 'Tools of Titans'.

(Talk about go BIG or go home ... yeah? precisely!)

The blog will be named That Lonesome Road dot ____ (apologies if Amazon thinks this is promotional, I seek to serve not promote and ask you allow me to do this in a way that meets your standards) and I invite any and all of you to join me as I do my all to save my life and insure my Music does not go to my grave unplayed.

I pledge:
1. I will be brutally honest.
2. If I feel the desire to hold back from fear of ____ ... then I know I am on the right path.
3. I will keep an honest record and tell you if what I have done works ... and if not whether I think I was the reason or no.
4. I am doing this to hold myself accountable NOT seek notoriety. If I sound like a pompous jerk please let me know.
5. I will do one of the hardest things I rarely do - I will ask for help.
6. Though the subject is ... well, it ain't Sunshine and Roses ... I pledge to have a sense of humor about this!
7. I will say Please; Thank You; I am Sorry; Will be on Time; & Will finish what I start. Genuine good manners, Graciousness, and Accountability are very scarce these days. I pledge I will embody that ... or you have my complete permission to take a whiz in my cup of ...

Thank you Tim for writing this and capturing these insights.

Thank you to all who contributed.

Thank you to all who read this - I pray it is of service.
