Robert Frost (1874-1963) was a famous American poet who worked menial odd-jobs while pursuing his love of poetry in his spare time. He went on to win four Pulitzer prizes. I found this quote in The 4-Hour Workweek by Tim Ferriss, a book that helps people break free from their 9-5 jobs and live life on their terms. The book helped give me the confidence to leave my own 9-5 and try to make it on my own. Tim’s blog is one of my favourites, and is packed with useful tips on life-hacking – whether it be work, travel, language or fitness (and now cooking!).
