    I thought I would start this community thread of the 100 reasons why you want to get out of the slowlane.

    1. The daily commute. Weeks of your life spent every year driving to and from your job.
    2. Working for money. The jobs gone, the moneys gone.
    3. The boss. Everyone's favorite person.
    4. ???
    Now is your turn. Tell everyone your reasons to get out of the slowlane. Perhaps we can get over 100 reasons.

    #21: Because life gives you no guarantees. You could be gone in a flash -- *waiting* for a safe secure retirement by the age of 50,55 or 60 is gambling with your life.

    #22: Because millions of dollars now in my 20's and 30's when I'm young and lively is better than at 65 when I'm old, worn-out, and immobile.

    40. Because life is about challenging yourself to become a better person everyday – even if only in very small increments. Be it financially, spiritually, physically, educationally, etc. The fastlane allows for more time to focus on self improvement and actualization of YOUR dreams – not necessarily (although not excluding) the dreams of others.

    Nice thread, Bilge +++

    I know we can get to 100.

    46. If you work only a 40 hour work week. That comes out to 2080 hours per year. Thats 87.7 days of nothing but work. Nearly 3 months. Most of us have better things to do with our time.

    edit: oops

    #48: So I can pay my mother's mortgage in full so her retirement is a bit more relaxing, especially after all the HELL I put her thru in my teens and early 20's.

    #49: So I can buy my brother a new Lexus and then say "Enjoy the car" (I know he's reading this under guise of one of his covert ops!)

    #50: So I can invest in new companies that I would never have considered prior.
