It may be scary not to know where you're going in life. But it may also mean that you're going to be more successful.
Charting a life plan and sticking dogmatically to it is fundamentally limiting, according to Tim Ferriss, entrepreneur and author of bestselling book "The 4-Hour Workweek."
"If you stick to a plan very fastidiously, you are not going to be able to adapt to new opportunities that present themselves," Ferriss tells CNBC.
After his blockbuster first book, Ferriss went on to write two more in the same series: "The 4-Hour Body" and "The 4-Hour Chef." He also launched a successful podcast, "The Tim Ferriss Show," and starred in a television program, "The Tim Ferriss Experiment."
