Fear of Missing Out
Are you feeling down about not being invited to that important work meeting?
How could they have left you off the invite list?
Who made that decision?
Was it Derek?
Damn you, Derek! I never liked you anyway.
Of course, you could return to that stack of work already waiting for you.
You could do that.
But you’ll have to contend with your Fear of Missing Out (FOMO) first.
Helpful Hint: If you are still feeling left out – spend a moment to understand FOMO a little bit better. I would suggest starting with the below video. So, you know, you could get back to your work and not struggle with the paralysis created when you focus on what you aren’t doing vs. what you probably should be doing.
Admittedly, I deal with the fear of missing out, but this video helps ground me when I’m beginning to circle around in my head.
…and then all I can think about is wanting to go to Bonnaroo.
