You linked to "The 4 Hour Workweek" - I am interested to hear how it works for you. It was my top business read of 2008 and #2 of all time next to GTD.

I took Ferriss' advice regarding email (check it twice a day) and combined with GTD you can become a ninja in days. I also went on a "media diet" (no newspapers, 1 hour of pleasure reading, no TV, etc). I had so much free time I didn't know what to do with myself. I must have gained at least 10 hours a week of my life back.

I used to read The WSJ and LA Times practically cover to cover. What a waste. Like Ferriss says, if something big happens you will hear about it from someone else! (My wife is always filling me in on what I need to know).

Merlin mann @ 43 Folders is a big inspiration for me too. Check out Merlin's Inbox Zero talk that he did at google: and look out for a soon-to-be-released video of his recent macworld talk on managing attention.
