Since 1984, Richard Saul Wurman has created extraordinary gatherings about learning and understanding. Entertainment Gathering is a rich extension of these ideas – a conference that explores the attitude of understanding in music, film, television, radio, technology, advertising, gaming, interactivity and the web. This video captures the presentation from Tim Ferris, best-selling author of The 4-Hour Workweek. In this video, Tim discusses how he conquered his fear of water and became a proficient swimmer; How his attempts at learning Japanese taught him that often times the secret to success is what you do, not how you do it; and how he became a Tango world-champion by understanding the difference between explicit and implicit communications during learning.
Tim is an interesting character who pushes the boundaries of life design, providing what often seems like radical advise for getting the life that you want. In his famous book The 4-Hour Workweek, Tim provides advise on how to change your life so you work to live, rather than live to work. As Mike Maples (Co-founder of Motive Communications and Founding Executive of Tivoli) said, “If you want to live life on your own terms, [the 4-hour workweek] is your blueprint.”
I hope you enjoy this video; if you do, you might want to pay a visit to Tim’s blog, or buy his book at your favourite bookstore.
