Starting reading it during the election. Completed it recently. Full of brutal TRUTH BOMBS. Should be read by everyone, but in today's world most reject hard truths and prefer comforting lies. Great job MJ!

The only logical conclusion to TMF ... UNSCRIPTED . Read it, swallowed it whole. Much more information than i could have imagined, and definitely one of my must-reads.

I listened to the audio book and I found so many parallels to things that I already questioned in life. I noticed that I'm already unscripted spending wise but need to transform my income as well.

Now I'm listening to the millionaire fast lane.

Listened to this Epic over a month or so in the gym and at work and in-between meetings and at nights, really need to get a paper copy as there is so much value here that needs to be harvested and referenced in the journey, feel like I'm stuck in the mud without referring to it often to refresh my headspace.

Finished Unscripted last week (on audio)! I love that MJ goes into more detail around scaling business models that weren't considered fast lane in TMF. As usually happens with the best audiobooks, I'm gonna have to order the physical book now too.

It's been almost a year later since I last read TMF and contributed to this forum.
I started reading Unscripted about a month ago and have gained valuable insight into my own psychological makeup that has hindered me from Unscripted success.
Namely, I lack Execution. In my defence, I don't believe it stemmed from laziness or lack of motivation more than misdirected focus on non-fastlane paths/projects. But also I'm a little slow with execution so I'll be accountable still.

Around this time last year, I had resolved to learn web development (check) and go the easy route by freelancing as a business model. I soon realised that freelancing was no different than working a regular job. I despised having to follow my clients around for their own benefit and having to wait on the same clients to make a move or give me the go-ahead in order for my projects to progress. Instead of appeasing a stereotypical tyrannical boss, I was basically settling to work even harder to run my business while appeasing bosses on rotation (the clients). Besides, scaling that model was tricky and I became uninterested in web development anyway. It reminds me of MJ's example of a woman who quit her job to open a restaurant only to work even harder and be more miserable.

Anyway, I eventually listened to my inner wailings and scrapped that pursuit and went back to the drawing board. I reaffirmed to myself that my mission is to make the world a better place via the creation of a product/service that solves a real market need. The skills that would put me in the most favourable space to realise this (and meet my talents) was programming. Not the web design variety - the world is saturated with these folk and besides, it's becoming increasingly automated so it won't remain that profitable over time. I'm talking about the programming that is oriented toward BUILDING. Building a product/service that is actually missing in the market or even that is at least 10% better than existing offerings.
Hence unfolded my journey to begin learning Python and soon realising my interest in AI, specifically Machine Learning. I'm currently taking online courses on statistics - building up my mastery in this domain. I'm planning on reaching the edge of this domain and exploiting its entrepreneurial potential!
Notably, it resonates with my childhood love of computer hardware [I've taken online courses in this too] as well as innate optimism about the future of robotics and automation.
Also, it suits my personality: I'm low in agreeableness and high in openness. I'm also low in conscientiousness but I'm working on that. Besides, the best way to work on it is to go all-in on passion projects so Yay-for-me :-D

I'm juggling the abovementioned project with my Law degree at the moment. It's not challenging yet (maybe I need to grind harder lol) because I actually approach my ML journey with passion and an innate longing to solve problems. Also, it's helping me not hate my Law degree because I might end up building something at the intersection of Law and AI/ML - the Law has historically been slow af to adopt technology anyway + almost none of my academic peers are remotely interested or inclined in computer sciences.

So yes, this is where I am on my Unscripted journey. I'm stumbling toward the light but I'm making progress still.
I am immensely grateful to MJ for dispensing this treasure trove of knowledge! I have that many more golden balls because of him ;-)

aside: idk when I'll be posting again but I'll be lurking now and then and whenever I make considerable progress on my fastlane endeavours I'll be back fo-sho. As of now, I'm working on achieving mastery in the Machine Learning domain so that I'll at least be a component Founder and also be able to iterate prototypes quickly as well as have better judgement wrt ML-related ideas I will have moving forward.

Onwards & Upwards!

Thank you MJ for writing such a game changing book like Unscripted . It opened my eyes to how the script has infiltrated our lives without us knowing about it.

Ordered and read right after finishing TMF in March 2021, in order to keep the synergy of the first opus.

Read Unscripted , love the tactical element to the book and unabashed dismantling of a system that doesn't work.

Still can't decide which of the 2 books is better (f*ck it, they're both amazing), but I will say Unscripted is the one I tend to recommend to people more often. Amazing book, and I highly recommend everyone re-read these books every 6 - 12 months.
