Since publishing a post yesterday on “being a better gatekeeper of your time”, I have received a slightly strange request for support about the Devonthink software from someone who is obviously a reader of this blog. It includes a paragraph which finishes with the following sentence:
“You productivity guru’s (sic) can do this in all of your spare time. (4 hour workweek my ass.)”.
I would like to stress, for the record, that I do not advocate nor actually practice a 4 hour workweek (mine has perhaps more to do with four hours twice a day, five 1/2 days a week), but was merely drawing attention to a provocative book, which seems highly interesting.
Update (24 April 2007): One of my favorite professional blogger, the excellent Anne Zelenska, who has read the book, has a very lucid analysis in the post she published in the Web Worker Daily yesterday: Rethink Your Relationship to Work: Ideas from The 4-Hour Work Week.
