- So I am a huge fan of Tim's podcast, and thus Tim, who gives us his wonderful podcasts! Also, normally, I am way more comfortable than most people with tangential thinking. However, this went too far, in fact all over the map... sentence to sentence, section to section, and much of it was useful to only a minority of viewers. I don't need to lose weight, and don't need a startup lawyer...So far nothing is relevant to me. Also, I like using my legs when I swim, it is why I look good in very short shorts!!! What ever happened to enjoying your sport and getting a good workout?? So here is my feedback for Tim: You seem obsessed with being impressive and accomplished at things (swimming, cooking, etc), perhaps at times at the expense of enjoying doing those things????(Ditton on your book chapter on how to give a woman an orgasm quickly! OMG, I did not read it, but the idea made me feel bad for you. Hey-- the best part of orgasm is the build up and arousal! We can have orgasms on our own. Easy-- its the journey to the orgasm that is awesome magic. Enjoy that! Make it last! Good sex (orgasms included) is not just a race or a binary goal, it is an experience!-- a super fun yummy one. Take it slow!) OK enough on my worry that you are not having enough fun..... back to this course. ...(As you can see, I change subjects a lot too). Perhaps picking topics that are relevant to a larger % of viewers, and organizing it a bit more will help. Let me be clear. I am not a hater. I am a loyal TF fan! However, this just was not your best work. Still grateful to have you in the world (!!!), putting out some great content!!!) I just think you can do better. All that said, your podcast gets 10 giant thumbs up! : ) Note how this review keeps changing topic and going all over the map? Annoying right? Yeah, the course was kind of like that too.... (But your still a brilliant talented guy.. so please don't take it personally!).
- Fascinating interviews. Lot's of useful tips for business and life. It's a bit of a gamble because this style of seminar does not have a clear curriculum (e.g. it's not "how to edit photographs in Photoshop").
I would say that if you have found Tim Ferris interesting and useful in the past (e.g. books, articles, talks) then you will enjoy and find this seminar useful. Try listening to the free portion and see whether it resonates with you.
- I loved this class. I greatly enjoy Tim's writing and having him share and interview others on numerous topics that I'm very interested in was fascinating and fabulous.
