    Fired From my First Job & my Fastlane Journey

    My FTE: I graduated from college last year & got a job in a big financial firm (I thought I had made it). I found the work incredibly boring & was not putting in too much effort, so one month into the job my manager told me I needed to try harder or I would get fired. I freaked out & started...

    I think I'm not that guy anymore - Took me YEARS - FTE and execution

    Hello, Yes, I'm that guy. Sorry @MJ DeMarco, you haven't changed my life... yet :) The one who read all the books (TMF in 2016), and got nothing much done except for some action-faking. I know I'm far from being the only one. Even so, something has started to change in the past year. I'm...

    A knife was pulled on me 2 nights ago. What more of an FTE do I need?

    Hey. It's Jim here - and I'm back, great to meet you. 2 nights ago I had a knife pulled on me and was robbed while trying to enjoy a succulent chicken kebab. It feels crazy to even write that. Before this, my life has slowly been slipping from one of unlimited potential ready to blossom to...

    Embracing My "Enough Is Enough" Moment: From Cold and Hopeless to millionaire at 27.

    Hey Fastlaners, I want to share the exact moment with you that I believe turned my life around. This was my FTE. I finally had enough of the ‘struggle’. The weather was very cold, windy and rainy. I was riding my scooter to the office at 6 in the morning. It was still dark. Besides being...

Gratitude is what we're talking about. I...

    It was after I received an email from a retailer, denying my part-time job application, when I felt the pressure rising. My micro-FTE. A few days earlier, I remember feeling a sense of relief when I got the interview, I was so convinced I’d be working again. I was supposed to go and apply to...

    The power of a FTE (& this forum)

    Hello everyone, Today I would like to talk about my experience after having had what I would definitely call a "FTE".

    What if you've never had your FTE?

    Is it still possible for someone who has never experienced their FTE (only FTMs or "F*ck This Moments") to still have the drive and willpower to succeed in pursuing Fastlane? What do you think are ways to induce this for those who have not had their FTE? Is there a way to purposefully make it...

    What I thought was my FTE... and my ACTUAL FTE

    Hello all, I have been on the sidelines soaking in the goodness from this forum, and of course the books from MJ DeMarco. Part of me feels bad not taking action sooner, but another bigger part of me is ok with it. Explanation below: In my 20s I was diagnosed with a rare type of cancer... had...
