Fomo vs. learning

Fomo, the Fear of missing out, is real, so is the desire to learn. Sometimes I overwhelm myself with the vast amount of things I keep adding to my lists: YouTube to watch video list, Goodreads to read book list, Podcast to listen episode list, Website to read page list, conference/trade shows/events to participate in list, boardgames to play list….

There are moments in which I recognise a sense of anxiety around the fact that I won’t make it through all of these, at least not in this life. Then there are moments in which I realise this is just a story I tell myself. There is no real need to get through all of these items. I can rejoice in the fact that there are so many opportunities for learning, for being playful and simply use them as the tools they are.

Thank you for reading. I wish you a playful week.
