FOBO - Fear Of a Better Option
by Anne-Laure Le Cunff, creator of Ness Labs
FOBO is nothing new. People have long agonized over major life choices, like getting married, taking a job, or buying a house, in hopes of finding a slightly better or radically better option. Today, when we have so many options, we don’t just try to optimize who we marry, or where we work or live — we try to optimize nearly every aspect of our lives and we spend inordinate time and energy in the process.
💭 Quotes On My Mind
People are distracted from distraction by distraction.
-John Mark Comer
"Do what you love" + low overhead = a good life.
"Do what you love" + "I deserve nice things" = a time bomb.
Are you optimizing for what is important in your life or are you optimizing for everything in your life?
