    Fear of taking action, commitment and humiliation; Chronic escapism through books, fanfics and YouTube

    Reading 50 books per year has put me into a state of analysis paralysis, where I'm filled with ideas for how society should be run but don't even clean my damn room. None of my current beliefs are actually my own. Whenever I listen to my pleasure-strangled brain, it becomes a foul headwind that...

    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". While I don't feel comfortable talking about the exact details of this event (let's just say it was pathetic, embarrassing & stupid...), it happened about 30 days ago. While I...

    Sidewalk Etymology

    I am curious, MJ. What is the etymology behind the term “sidewalk”? How did you come about the term and which experiences helped you solidify it? If you prefer not to say, let us know.

    No one knew he was getting paid and not showing up...

    Stumbled on this article a few days ago. Basically this guy stopped showing up to his job and his job kept paying him FOR 6 YEARS. He stopped going to work and for 6 years after that he got a check because his employers assumed he was still working for them. They only found out he wasn’t...

    Old Sidewalker

    I'm 42 (43 very soon), I have 3 young children (youngest is 21 months), I run a tiny freelance business from home, working 2 days a week. I've read the first half of TMF and stopped to come and visit the forum. My Dad is a Slowlaner, in all respects. He spent his life scrimping and saving. He's...

    The End of all Sidewalk/Slowlane Bashing

    I see a ton of posts on this Forum from people pointing and laughing at Slowlaners and Sidewalkers because they haven't "Seen the light." I used to do this too... When I lived in Charlotte, NC, I'd ride the train to my mind-numbing financial analyst job in the Hearst Tower. I'd be reading 4...

    OMFG This Hurt

    An old shipmate that used to work for me just posted this on FB... "So, you know the old adage, "Good things come to those who wait"? Well, to that my Mother would tack on two words, "and PRAY". So, we waited and prayed and today I found out that I got the promotion I worked so hard for. I am...

    How Bad Do You Want It? Really Bad, yet I'm Stuck in Park!

    3:43 P.M. I’ve had it. Literally just screamed “f this” to the top my lungs! Read TMF and Unscripted, understand the 5 fast lane commandments, engine is primed and fueled, but I’m missing something. What that is, I don’t know (execution?). I’ve had enough, and it’s time to hit the fastlane and...

    SCRIPTED encounters: see the world through a new lens

    Background: I own and operate a small dealership. I was finishing up a deal, and collected the customer's insurance info (he's 19 or 20). $300/mo insurance for a vehicle with a payment of $370/mo. "Have you shopped this around?!" I was shocked. The mom chimes in: "It's part of being an adult...

    The Town With No Hustle

    Today I'm here to tell a story. This is the city of Lagrange, Georgia: It's a sleepy hamlet of roughly 30,000 people, and it's the town I've had the displeasure of living in on-and-off for about 7 of the last 15 years. The town is chock-full of sidewalkers with a smattering of slowlaners...

    This guy hates rich people

    I hope this is the right section, but this guy is a solid example of a sidewalker mindset.

    See how deep the rabbit hole goes -Clicking ads on Fastlane Forum

    So I noticed a couple days ago, the ads at the bottom of the page (I spend 98% of my time here on mobile) that showed other posts on the forum were mixed in with affiliate links. No judgement, MJ's gotta make his money. As long as I don't get the ads in the middle of my page a la insiders Sub, I...

    Found this gem on reddit again... My 2016 Beermoney totals. • /r/beermoney "I try to get my big goal every day. I also ruthlessly worked over time during the lovely time a month or two ago when they doubled the points on everything. I've literally spent up to 8 hours a day on Swagbucks, but...
