The 4-Hour Work Week, a book by Timothy Ferriss, challenged readers to lie down on the floor in a crowded room, then quickly stand up. If someone asks, What were you doing? You just say, I just felt like lying down.
This book challenges us to do something bawal. This doesn’t give us permission to hurt people or do something unethical; this simply asks us to be brave enough to go against the tide.
I want to be brave enough to look silly. I want to be brave enough to do something unique. All that matters is that I like it. All that matters is that I’m free.
