Over the last two weeks we’ve introduced Tim Ferriss as a company favorite for tips, tricks, and advice when it comes to business and his New York Times best seller, Tools of Titans: The Tactics, Routines, and Habits of Billionaires, Icons, and World-Class Performers.
In part one of this three-part series, we took key aspects of his Tim’s first bestseller, The 4-Hour Workweek, and offered suggestions on how to apply these concepts in business: define clear company goals that will allow you to create a clear path to achieving those goals, take advantage of the 80/20 principle to become more effective at work, and eliminate distractions for yourself and your team/team members.
Rokform Vice President Steve Petyo stepped in for part two to discuss his own top takeaways from Tools of Titans, which focused on health. “Three Movements Everyone Should Practice,” “Cold Is A Great Purifying Source,” and “Mind Training 101” are just three of ten big takeaways he mentions. These takeaways are the result of Tim’s personal interviews with nearly 200 world-class performers, from chess prodigies to professional athletes and hedge fund managers. The diverse compilation of high-performing humans often follow similar habits, beliefs, and recommendations, which Time shares with readers in his book. He says it provides a toolkit that will change your life.
We've absorbed a lot of knowledge from Tim's podcasts, books, and show.
When we think about what we’ve taken away from Tim’s books and podcast, one thing is very clear—Tim believes lifestyle design (LD) can not only simplify your life, but also help you lead a happier, more fulfilled life. In his blog, Tim showcases case studies of individuals who used advice in his books to create their own lifestyle design paths with more time and mobility.
With over 90 million downloads, Tim’s podcast alone makes him a bit of a celebrity. Well, when we kept thinking about his methodology, concepts, and tools, we realized our Rokform customers are not so different from Tim Ferriss. They have similar objectives in life around efficiency and optimization. Our customers care about the details that make their lives a little easier, like the ability to mount your phone to your toolbox so you can continue working without it in the way, or the relief of knowing your phone will be protected from unexpected drops. To us, functionality is efficiency—Rokform cases and accessories are lifestyle design tools made for everyone to enjoy. We create products designed to simplify the lives of our customers so that they can rest assured knowing their phone cases go beyond protection.
In 2012 Michael Ellsberg wrote a Forbes article where he dubbed the term the “Tim Ferriss Effect,“ which he explains with an example, “When you’re trying to promote [a book], the main place you want coverage is on a popular single-author blog or site related to your topic.” We completely agree. We see similarities between Rokform products and Tim’s lifestyle design tools. For our Rokform customers, we highly recommend and encourage you to pick up a copy of Tools of Titans or listen to one of his podcasts. We’re sure you’ll find a few tools that you’ll want to consider. For Tim Ferriss listeners and fans, check out Rokform’s cases and accessories. They’re designed out of the highest quality materials and engineered in Orange County with optimal lifestyle design in mind.
Lifestyle design is all about perspective.
Our customers are their own lifestyle designers, with many reaching out to us eagerly share how their Rokform cases have helped enhance their lives. Gym enthusiasts who stick their phones onto machines to time their workouts; Daily commuters who safely navigate the roads with our cases and mounts; Cyclists and motorcyclists who can approach windy roads and trails head on with their phones secured. There are hundreds more stories where the functionality of Rokform cases have improved people’s lives. We’d love to hear any of your stories and maybe one day post about how Tim Ferriss has found a way to up his own LD with a Rokform case in hand (or mounted!).
Tim's newest book, Tribe of Mentors: Short Life Advice from the Best in the World, will be released in November.
