The Life Leverage philosophy is a way of living your life to get more done in less time, outsource everything and create your ideal mobile lifestyle. It is a way of thinking, feeling, deciding, doing, and then getting the results and feedback accordingly to build momentum and get closer to your vision and legacy.
Life Leverage doesn't end with sitting on a beach drinking pina coladas, or retirement, or freedom, or balance. It allows you to live that moment-to-moment, or whatever that end goal is to you, now, and not rear-loaded, merging your passion with your profession and your vocation with your vacation.
The Life Leverage philosophy is living a fulfilled and inspired life, in balance of passion and profession, without overly sacrificing either. The Life Leverage philosophy doesn't understand work/life balance or separation; it merges every aspect into one inspired life.
The Life Leverage philosophy understands and accepts the balance of ups and downs, happiness and sadness, and moves towards its vision and legacy, constantly tweaking and accepting feedback. It disdains duplication and wastage; getting maximum leverage and maximum time preservation with minimum time erosion and wastage. It doesn't rear-load retirement, instead it lives continual mini-retirements.
I think the concept of this book also can expand to other aspects of your daily life. For example, should you mow your lawn yourself, should you teach your kids on weekend yourself, should you paint your house yourself, or should you hire someone?
The book is written concisely so you may finish it in a couple of hours. However, it carries such a powerful message that will change your life.
I give it a five star review
He inspires, and empowers, the reader with strategies and systems in place, so that you can create,a simple lifestyle, to have more freedom, to have a more enjoyable lifestyle.
The basic concepts are okay, but they can be summed up in 3 lines each. There was no need to WASTE TIME extending the book with unnecessary anecdotes (it is a massive irony that this book is about managing time).
There is information which has appeared in other books as has been mentioned in another comment, though this is a much more accessible text.
He has (as always) put lots more value than you'd expect so leverage his knowledge, buy the book and free up your life to spend on activitoes you want.
It is relevant in the sense that it covers finance in the internet age and beyond and as such I would recommend it.
BUT there are several things I would take issue with not least the level of planning and personal responsibility the author suggests you can dispense with. Although he paints an idealistic picture of his own wealth I am not so convinced. The concept of outsourcing everything less than you are capable of earning seems foolish given that this assumes you have a plentiful supply of potential work to be doing!
I would also add that large sections of the book appear in his other work almost word for word. Fine to overlap ideas for continuity but some of this is plain lazy.
I don't get the ranking at all nowhere near 5 stars for me.
Anyone who's interested in succeeding in business and life. Read this book (and Money).
At 45 I've completely changed my mindset and am richer both financially and in life.
Definitely a must read.
