Read Millionaire Fastlane
I've Read UNSCRIPTED
- Mar 6, 2019
Hello everyone, I am a long haul airline pilot living what many have seen as a blessed life. What they've seen as flying a big jet, going to beautiful cities and making good money, I have felt as a real trade-off in being away from my young family, deteriorating health and facing a complete lack of control of my life. While not exactly the slowlane depicted in TMF, I recently read Unscripted and it resonated heavily with me; much more than it did when I first read TMF years ago. Having just spontaneously put in my 3 months notice after 12 years, I read unscripted and realized holy F*ck, I had a F*ck this event! It made me feel at peace with my decision to leave a job I had worked so hard to get to pursue a life built on entrepreneurship and living according to my own values. Reading the book and the posts on this forum have given me the confidence in what is possible if I apply my time, effort and talent to something that matters steered in a direction I want. While I have been running side businesses now for a number of years, the concepts in the books have given me a better perspective as to their utility (or futility) and value creation . I'd be lying if I said I wasn't horrified by the uncertainty lying ahead but it's given me more energy than I've had in years. I appreciate how open everyone is on this forum and hope I can contribute in a meaningful fashion. Thank you.
