    How to Work Smarter, Not Just Harder, AND Have Free Time

    How to Work Smarter, Not Just Harder, AND Have Free Time

    The problem with working 13+ hours a day

    I have come across many individuals who work hard. Some work 10 to 15-hour days. Some have told me they went to the hospital thanks to overwork and regretted it. And many still aren’t rich. They fall everywhere in the spectrum:



    minimal wage

    entry level

    six figures

    7 figure successful CEO



    Likely, you’ve heard someone successful emphasize how hard they work and how it’s crucial for success. True hustlers. But is working as hard as possible always the right path? That’s what we’ll explore in today’s podcast episode.





    Work smarter. Not just harder. Of course, do both. But if you have to choose, work smart. I’d rather be the guy who works 4 hours a day and makes 10 times more than the people who “work hard.” This dream is possible. Tim Ferriss’s famous book The Four Hour Work Week details his journey from overworked business owner to lifestyle entrepreneur and world traveler.

    Working smarter can make an exhausting task into a fun one. This vacuum cleaner for leaves is great! Not perfect but Ive fixed the kinks! Happy autumn. Still hasnt snowed

    A post shared by Will Chou (@willyoulaugh_) on Dec 3, 2019 at 2:21pm PST







    I admire hard workers. I would say about 1 in 50 to maybe 1 in 500 people I meet work hard. But that still makes “working hard” a commodity.

    It’s rare but not rare enough.

    With 7+ billion people in the world, that’s still millions willing to work just as hard as you.

    Working hard definitely shouldn’t be underestimated. There are many who claim to work hard but you catch them spending 7 minutes here on Facebook chatting and 19 minutes here on Netflix, and it adds up to 5+ hours of their day wasted. (Honestly, I’m working on this myself) Usually, you see this most often with minimal wage workers.

    From observation, I have seen how many of them function: they track their working hard hours by the time between when they clock in and when they clock out. As long as they don’t get caught off task on duty, anything in between that time is a free for all. It’s not really working hard but “how many hours can I say I worked hard today on paper so I can brag about it?”

    Now, this isn’t everyone, but it’s just an example for you to avoid.

    Working hard can definitely increase your success. There’s plenty of people who probably live a quarter of the life you can live because you work hard when they don’t.

    But it definitely hits a threshold: there will hit a point where you are working at your max before you end up dying or collapsing from exhaustion from lack of sleep or lack of any more time in a day.

    The world is more complex than that. You must turn to other things beforehand. Sleep is a critical part of our life. Contrary to what most people assume, it doesn’t work like some direct correlation where the less sleep you get and the more time you spend working, the more productive you are.

    There is a gray area where sometimes it’s better to get mo...

    How To Master Anything – A Chat with Dr. K. Anders Ericsson, author of Peak (Podcast)

    How To Master Anything – A Chat with Dr. K. Anders Ericsson, author of Peak (Podcast)

    I highly recommend the book Peak: Secrets from the New Science of Success by Anders Ericsson and Robert Pool.

    This book is one of the most well-researched, evidence-backed books on what it takes to become a master of a craft that exists. It’s a must-read before any other books on the topic, including Mastery by Robert Greene. I did come into the book with some skepticism on some of the assertions made, like the utility (or lack thereof) of passion or talent (genetics) despite the points made in the book, and Anders elaborates these topics in our interview.

    This is Asian American Dating Life [Podcast]

    I wanted to have some fun on my podcast and cover a more light topic. If you’re looking for a serious life lesson, this episode may also give you some insight or inspiration on:



    * what you think is the greatest disaster in the world doesn’t affect you as much as you think

    * perseverance is rare, tough, but useful

    * conquering your greatest fears with courage because you want what’s on the other side

    * having a light attitude towards life’s blows

    Habit Stacking: A Secret to Small Changes to Improve Life (Podcast)

    I want to share with you a concept called “habit stacking” that I discovered from James Clears’s book Atomic Habits (affiliate link). He didn’t originate the term, but I found it incredibly useful for building good habits.

    Michael Sartain on Benefits of Female Friendships for Men, How to Network with High-Value People, & More

    Michael Sartain on Benefits of Female Friendships for Men, How to Network with High-Value People, & More

    In this podcast episode, I talk with Michael Sartain, a millionaire TV star on Millionaire Matchmaker, an Air Force veteran, Las Vegas resident, red carpet host, and social media influencer. This interview has been one of my favorites since it’s packed with knowledge bombs. We talk about:



    * fashion advice

    * the lifestyle of the Las Vegas elite

    * social media (especially Instagram) culture

    * the benefits of female friendships for men

    * why “be yourself” advice doesn’t work

    * secrets of networking with high-value people

    * why the truth is often much simpler and boring than you think

    * how to talk to highly attractive women without being intimidated

    * why you should follow successful people’s actions over advice you consume for making money or dating

    * why friendships and networking is about caring about someone and helping them, not manipulating or expecting something back

    * much more

    * (my favorite part is around 45:00 – 53:00)

    Some of My Takeaways

    1) making female friends and not objectifying them and respecting them will get you more women not less, they’ll introduce you to people, point out what you’re doing wrong, etc.

    2) most hot women meet their boyfriend through an introduction through a friend

    3) make female friends because you genuinely care about the other person and their problems and trust them (which is what friendship is), don’t do it to manipulate them into introducing you to others

    4) surround yourself with other people who also have an abundance mindset
