Life Without FOMO: The Virtues of "Missing Out"

personal development Dec 27, 2018

Fear of Missing Out (FOMO), is a relic of our prehistoric brain that has outlived its necessity and utility.

When we scuttled about the planet as just another species trying to get enough to eat without being eaten, FOMO was very real. Miss out on a meal when they come with dangerous infrequency could mean starvation and even death.

Miss out on a text, an email, or an online offer and you probably won't even notice. In fact, you may be better off.

Being intentional about where you spend your valuable time and attention and what you spend it on doesn't induce fear. It's empowering. It cultivates temperance and taste. It develops character and will.

Make better choices and make a better future.

Keep flying higher!
