It was distilled from more than 10,000 pages of notes, and everything has been vetted and tested in my own life in some fashion. The tips and tricks in Tools of Titans changed my life, and I hope the same for you. Click here for sample chapters, full details, and a Foreword from Arnold Schwarzenegger!

  1. I agree I would love to have a conversation about how I can get away from the 9-5, be financially free and independent. Traveling the world would be cool but learning how to be able to do the kinda of things you do would be awesome.

  3. Hi Tim,

    Beyond awesome. I’ll share it for my journeying buddies, and as a guy who’s circled the globe for 53 months straight, goodness gracious you can travel the world through many ways and means. This contest is one of them. So is house sitting. We’ve lived rent-free in: Fiji, NYC, Bali, Nicaragua, and coming up, Costa Rica, over the past 16 months. Lodging for free in kick butt spots. Thanks so much for sharing with us dude. You rock. And keep up posted on where you’re headed; would love to meet up with you.

    Pura Vida,

    Ryan

  4. You should visit Halifax, Nova Scotia instead Montreal Tim. I could show you around. Your book changed how I plan my life (well partly) and I’m grateful for putting something concrete on paper that kinda formalized my thinking. Dreaming about trip around World but for now I’m doing mini trips when I pass Atlantic ocean to visit parents in Europe and utilize budget air carriers (Ryan Air, Easy Jet, Wizz Air, Berlin Wings, Pegasus, etc) for cheep flights. Now I have collection of carrion baggage that is matching to criteria of above carriers. As well I learned a lot about what to wear to pack as much practical things and still travel light. Anyway… Great posts here. This is my first comment but I reading lots of your blogs.
    Cheers!

  7. Can’t help you with this because I concur with Essena O’Neill on the fact that social media is an artificial world that is for those who have nothing better to do with their time, except of course for the advertisers and promoters of social media who are in it for the money.

    Essena O’Neill is not only an attractive young woman, but a highly intelligent person who has had the courage to sound the tocsin against social media, seeing it for what it really is, a huge fairy tale world of pseudo friendships.

  8. Great contest! I am surprised at the comments on giving up a chance to travel the world for a conversation with Tim. C’mon people I mean the guy is awesome but the world is…Well the world! It’s F****** amazing! I think Tim himself would agree haha. Good luck everyone!

  9. A lot of flashing lights and baubles but, underneath all that, what’s in it for you, Tim? Very vague on the details except ‘sign up here’. Who and what are StackCommerce that inspires you to want to give away all this stuff? An hour of your time is probably more precious than any of the goodies that were donated for this comp. Just wondering – are we selling our private information to the devil, here? It must be worth a lot

  11. Very cool,Tim. For a second I thought you were going to talk about travel hacking around the world. I just wrote a book about how I traveled to 7 continents in 4 months for $ 241 in flight costs. Keep up the great work.

    • It was shut down and my guess is because 1. it required too much time and energy to moderate- imagine how much masturbational promo and advertising it must have received – which Team Tim could have better spent on Team Tim and 2. Instead of getting Tims audience to focus positive time and energy toward Tim and his works, ie this blog, it focused energy away from that. Subtraction. A big detour. Not a good audience builder AT ALL
      These were my educated guesses why it was not a good idea to keep it running. Fair enough

  15. Hi Tim,
    You might remember me from the Charity:Water contest – the “Go France” effect. (How did that contest end by the way ? Did we win ?)

    I love how you structured this new giveaway. Simple, effective, and great prizes.

    Hey Tim… Saw your Zion National Park thing in 5 bullet. I just did an L.A. to S.F. road trip/day hike tour. Took the loooong route up through death valley, then through Yosemite.

    You should do it in reverse, to Vegas then fly back home. The entire drive through Death Valley is super epic/beautiful & any day hikes are nice and empty of tourists. [Moderator: link removed]

    Tim. I saw your Zion National Park thing on 5 bullet… I just did a road trip/dayhike tour from L.A. to S.F. I took the loooong route up through Death Valley and through Yosemite. Yosemite is Yosemite & the entire drive through Death Valley is super beautiful & epic. Any day hikes you do out there won’t have a lot of people around either. Posted a couple vids here, but they barely scratch the surface… https://instagram.com/thejimbond/

    You should go reverse from S.F., Yosemite, then down Death Valley, to Vegas & fly back! It’ll be a sub $1000 trip you will never forget.

  18. Hey Tim,

    I really like your posts lately that seem to be diverging from tech a bit. I think a lot of young people in the tech realm have the same thoughts but are afraid to admit it. You should write “4 Hour Soup for the Techies Soul: How to use tech without becoming a user” Funny, philosophical, pragmatic, etc. Good Luck!

  19. Well the prizes seem nice. But with potentially many millions of entries chances of winning are minute. What concerns me is whats in this for Tim, and the data mining company? Tim we can trust but no some NSA style corporation. Theres virtually no disclosure as to the why. Just ‘give us all your private information for free’. Bit of a bait and switch. Those prizes don’t cost very much to Tim or Stackcommerce, and they were possibly donated by companies anyway for promo, but if everyones personal info is worth $5 each to a data corp. well you can see thats an absolutely fortune. Again I remind you of your actual chances of winning. Sorry Tim. I’m feeling let down. I feel sad. I don’t dig what you’re doing here. Integrity, ethics. I’m sad😦

  20. Hi Tim,

    This is an awesome giveaway! The reason I started diving into your content was because of your approach when it comes to travel, I stayed for all the amazing value you deliver about life hacking in general. I am an enthusiastic traveler myself and step by step trying to apply your four hour work week to my own life.

    Keeping my fingers crossed for the world trip prize, although a meet and greet would be invaluable!

    Thanks for sharing this!

    Sitting at my 9-5 job playing around with the ATW flights, which has made me realise where I REALLY want to visit. Having rarely ventured outside of the EU, I’d love to see Indonesia, Vietnam, Japan, San Fran, New York, Iceland….

  22. Hello, I just started reading the book and had a couple questions. So, how does one go about this lifestyle? How do you work so much less and enjoy life more throughout instead of just at retirement? This sounds so appealing, but how? Also, how does one do this if they are raising children?

  23. Was this a scam to get free publicity? I mean no disrespect, it’s just many people would like to know an update of who the winners are and there hasn’t been a response.
