    Vraag Timothy Ferriss wat hij aan het doen is, en de kans is groot dat je als antwoord krijgt: "skiën in de Andes", "duiken in Panama" of "tangodansen in Buenos Aires". Ferriss heeft namelijk het achterhaalde idee van "eerst werken, dan leven" ingeruild voor een rijk leven in het hier en nu. Niet geld stelt je daartoe in staat, maar de nieuwe economische factoren tijd en mobiliteit.
