    The Dark Side of Being in Business

    MINDSET 
    Business is an incredible career path filled with so much flexibility and opportunity. But, are you aware of the definite dark side to being in business? It's a trap many professionals fall into. ⚠️ See, business people are people who find viable means to realize visions. They see a...

    Incerto Collection - Nassim Taleb

    BOOKS 
    So I'm sitting here drinking during my lunch break that I started about a half-hour ago and will go on for another 2 hours because I measured my time and energy to money ratio, wrote it down into a set of parameters to follow, all things I learned from 2 authors. First, Nassim Taleb, who I'm in...

    Morality and business

    PEOPLE 
    Hi all I've been amidst reading Atlas Shrugged and reading the book has sparked some questions regarding human morality and the business journey that many has set in. In most business, we are out there to make money and the main purpose of that is to support our living and our interests...

    INTRO 
    Hey all! - Just joined recently How's are people's fastlane ideas and strategies playing out? What were some big challenges? I'm just finishing up the Millionaire Fastlane. I've been a little wary of business / personal growth books lately, but this is one of those rare books that...

    Burgeoning on philosophical?

    Hi, I'm new here. Loved both the books, could not put them down, took almost half a books worth of notes. Thanks for taking the time to read this and accept my young self into the forum. I really appreciate the guidance. May I be so bold as to receive your opinion? Would you agree the book...

    Philosophy as a business

    Hey Fastlane fam, I’m throwing this out there to see what bites and if anything snags my attention. I realize I like to think a lot and figure things out. Like, a lot. And most recently I’ve been doing this with life and the human psyche. What kind of business can you start with philosophy...

    Schopenhauer - On Thinking for Oneself

    OFF-TOPIC 
    https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/On_Thinking_for_Oneself I just finished this short & wonderful essay. I'd recommend it to anyone who likes to read a lot, as reading can actually make you dumber under certain circumstances. It resonated with an idea which I implied from Nassim Taleb, which is to...

    Has anyone really reached their goals?

    MINDSET 
    Hi folks, I'm curious. Has anyone here in this forum really reached their initial goals? By that, I mean starting with nothing, and deciding "I will do X and earn X in X days/weeks/months/years" and actually achieved it? I don't know, it seems to me pursuing a goal is actually...

    What’s your Meaning of Life?

    MINDSET 
    I recently finished re-reading, “Man’s Search for Meaning” by Viktor E. Frankly and he brought up a good point. You don’t ask to the universe, “What’s the meaning to life?”... That question is actually a question for you. You’re the one who answers that question. And everyone’s answer will...

    Food for thought.

    MINDSET 
    View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XVAXMR2L6n8 From one of my favorite channels on YT, hits home, and talks surprisingly about the same as MJ does. Only, with philosophical terms.

    Which are some books to get my feet wet into ... how do I call this

    Hi peeps. Happy Friday. Still stuck on my 5/2 exchange so I'm still saying TGIF ._. My coworker next to me is eating and he's making chewing noises, I wanna throw the keyboard at him. I just read "Keep Going" by Austin Kleon in a couple commutes. Short little book, those nice little reads...

    Every time I do this, I fail. And so will you.

    EXECUTION 
    Hello guys. I wanted to mention something about my experiences in life that are applicable for business and day to day life. Every time I doubted myself, I found myself doing worse. I gave myself a reason to fail. It's like just the idea of me doubting myself made me lose my confidence. And...

    Why do we love losers?

    EXECUTION RANT 
    I feel too many people are soft today. We accept failure almost as equally as a success. They try to make all the kids feel like winners and have no one feel the grief of loss. If you never taste defeat, how can you truly taste victory? I just wonder why we are accepting stuff like this and...

    The WHY that pushes me to work and never relent. Does anyone else think this way?

    MINDSET 
    During my youth I remember how often I would not be able to sleep at night thinking of death. I would end up in my parents room asking questions they did not have the answer to. Death is such an impossible thing to imagine. For an agnostic like myself it can lead to depressing thoughts. I saw...

    There is nothing in the desert and no man needs nothing

    MINDSET 
    Hey there Fastlaner (or soon to be one). Yes you. I have a message for you should you care to hear it. No matter where you are in the world, you are zooming past everyone and everything in your life. Everything from your everyday choices, decisions, business, and those dear to you. Not paying...

    Ultimate Resource List (Websites, Books, and more!)

    INTRO I've been browsing through this forum a bit and (forgive me if I'm wrong) I haven't seen a thread that shows a massive list of resources for learning. Obviously learning is vital to surviving in this day and age. Creating a business? Gotta know basic salesmanship, marketing, manufacturing...

    Is Willy Wonka Unscripted?

    OFF-TOPIC 
    This man has created a wold of his imagination. Isn't that what being unscripted is about. Simply imagining what you want out of life then creating it? Although if i can remember he has had a difficult time running the factory and was retiring candy making but he was looking for a successor much...
