Most people know who Timothy Ferriss is because of his books like The Four Hour Workweek, The Four Hour Body, The Four Hour Chef, and Tools of Titans.
However, besides being a famous author and podcaster, he:
- Speaks over 4 languages
- Has won the Chinese kickboxing championship
- Started an online nutritional supplement store
- Is a high tech “angel” investor
- Is a health nut
- Travels extensively
- Routinely experiments on himself with foods, exercise, supplements, diets, culture, etc.
Everyone assumes that he is some sort of crazy savant that has leveraged his strengths to the nth degree and become a kazillionaire doing it. And, there is probably some truth to the “crazy” description but one of the big reasons he is able to do what he does successfully is because of the accelerated learning process that he has perfected.
Ferriss calls this learning system DSSS.
