    Fit For Life, by Harvey Diamond

    HEALTH 
    Are two days in a row that I go running for about one hour, up and down on the hills, and I don't feel fatigued. I could run forever it seems. If you have read Rich Roll's book, he says something similar. Considering that I workout every morning and as a job, I do cleanings and sell solar...

    Interested in joining a mastermind?

    MEETUPS 
    Hi everyone. I would like to create a mastermind and connect with a few of you on a regular basis. Since I don't have a job anymore, I have plenty of time to focus on my goals (health, starting a business, investing in the stock market to name a few). I live near Montreal, eastern time zone...

    How I reduced the amount of time I waste online

    MINDSET 
    I spend most days working on the computer and I often catch myself checking my emails, reddit or hacker news instead of working. I didn't think it was a problem until I tried using a time tracking app. I realized that I was literally wasting hours every day and I wasn't getting much out of it...

    How to (not) focus on multiple things at once and achieve mediocre results.

    GOLD! MINDSET 
    Finally got around to listening to the fastlane insiders podcast hosted by @Vigilante featuring @MJ DeMarco & @AllenCrawley from May 28th. The episode itself was gold and I highly recommend checking out the recording (available on the inside) if you haven't already. The one thing which stuck...

    Drown Out the Noise, and Focus (First Things First)

    MINDSET 
    Drown Out the Noise, and Focus (First Things First) Maybe it took me a pandemic. This window of slowing down has crystalized a lot of things, and re-prioritized things. I have often preached to others the value of Steven Covey’s concept of putting First Things First. Prioritizing the things...

    The 90 Day Focus Challenge

    HOT! MINDSET 
    I think a few of you would have seen the discipline challenge thread around "75 hard" on here. A lot of us have been making massive progress around work ethic, drive and fitness. From doing that challenge for over 3 months now I also wanted to start in on my focus. I think the ability to focus...

    Serving two masters at once... makes you go bald.

    MINDSET 
    For those who are interested in these metaphor stories, I just heard another great one today while listening to audiobook in the car, it goes like this: In Ancient Greece, it was completely normal for a man to have two wives, one old and one young. Both women would love the man very dearly...

    How I went from $0 to $300,000 at the age of 22 (Oh, and back to $0)

    MINDSET 
    Alright guys, time for round 2 of me throwing out a novel as a thread before I leave another year or two and live to tell another tale. Maybe some of you remember me from my Amazon FBA thread I’ve written 2 years ago. I thought about adding what this story to the Amazon thread, however, I...

    Small Wins

    SIDE HUSTLE 
    Caught an article today that reminded me of process vs. event. Why Small Wins Matter Most of us start with monumental aspirations - place our event neatly at our bow, and soon find ourselves paddling frantically against a sea of overwhelm, kicked up as the headwinds of process pound a...

    Satistime - Work like a Boss. Sleep like a Baby.

    EXECUTION 
    Hello fellow fastlaners, I'd like to share with you the progress of my first product: Satistime Development on the tool started over a year ago. Back then I was frustrated with the existing todo list solutions, as none of them allowed me to schedule my todos. I could set due dates, but no...

    How Do You Break Up Your Pomodoros?

    MINDSET 
    I know a lot of people on here use the Pomodoro technique, whereby you work for a period of time 30-90 minutes, then you take a 5-15 minute break. The problem I have, is what do I do in that break that won't completely slew my attention onto something else? So I'm wondering what do you do in...

    What Do Productive People Do?

    HOT! MINDSET 
    I have recently been inspired by the book we've been discussing on the forum, Atomic Habits by James Clear. A quote that hit me in particular, was the one whereby Clear tells us that our identities are the trailing sum of our habits, ergo when we take on new habits, we are actually attempting to...

    Discipline - The Reason You Might Fail

    MINDSET FAILURE 
    Being a full-time entrepreneur - at least starting out as I am - is at once one of the most glorious and most challenging things I've ever experienced. Hopefully, this will get you reflecting/thinking/considering your own climb. What's Glorious About It? Not needing to wake up to make a...

    How to start your fastlane journey if you are disconnected to the idea of it?

    IDEA MINDSET 
    Hey guys, great to be here, I will keep this concise. I was introduced to personal development just over 5 years ago. I found MJ's (TMF) book and it is hands down the best I have ever read. I am at a point now where my desire to become rich is still strong, but my desire to execute and do...

    Focus Vs loading the gumball machine

    MINDSET 
    hi, I wonder if you could help me make sense of something. I’m well aware of the need to focus on a product/business - however @MJ DeMarco also talks about loading the machine with gold balls (apologies if that’s not 100% how it’s described in the book). I am dedicated to, and focussed on my...
