FOMO – Fear Of Missing Out – is pillaging great minds of their greatness.
Where deep work was possible, FOMO reduced it to self-imposed thinly-sliced Facebook reprieves.
Where divergent thinking was possible, FOMO diluted it to trend-following safe plays where average output becomes your happy-place.
Where evening learning and relaxation were possible, FOMO replaced with negative news cycles and stodgy nights of streaming video.
What we really need is FOFOMO – fear of missing out.
