The good news: James offers his book as a FREE ebook, although I recommend buying a physical copy for taking notes by hand.
You download the book FOR FREE here:
Do it, read it, implement it.

Having experienced James Schramko multiple times over the last couple of years, his “Work Less Make More” is the first book whose lesson I’m actually implementing in my journey as a voice actor.
James lives in Australia.
Has a family.
Surfs every single day.
Works 15-ish hours a week.
You can listen to his short 52-minute interview with Rick Mulready here, if you’re not familiar with James Schramko yet (it’s the piece of content that made me buy his book):
Sometimes I feel that people are confused. They try to find answers in an ark but struggle to find one.
Then I say:
“I Noah guy!”

Remember when the internet was this fun all the time?

I dreamed about drowning in an ocean made out of orange soda last night.
It took me a while to work out it was just a Fanta sea.
I figured the best use of a bio on Twitter/Mastodon is a “what i’m doing now” statement.
When you say what you’re doing now, it reflects your activity, not your “wanna-be” (i only wrote it like this because it rhymes ^^).
Instead of showing an arguably relatively non-saying “Loving Husband/Wife - CEO/CTO/CXX - Pizza addict” statement, you present your current actions, which is much cooler, imho.

* Staying in your mental and physical zone of comfort for an increased “fear of others”, e.g. Amy Cooper called the New York City Police Department and accused an African American man of threatening her in Central Park after he asked her to leash her dog https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LFjxye6T4fk - that is a problem.
The examples on their own are unproblematic, but all of them together are “brutal”.
A settled life with an above-average socioeconmic status is fertile ground for a Bubble of Dependency.
Examples for third parties are:
* Gym membership
* Food delivery (regular usage)
* Hanging out with “your class” only
* Isolation from “regular” people
** taking Uber instead of public transporation
** staying in hotels instead of hostels
* Disconnection from your true to please “your class” people only
* Over-consumption of unproductive content and nutrient-poor food
What is a Bubble of Dependency?
A Bubble of Dependency is a man-made, self-constructed way of living in which you allow third parties–people, services, tools–to create a life that largely depends on them working for you.
Without aforementioned third parties, your life falls apart, and you are unable to function, in the worst version of a Bubble of Dependency.
