What is it like to have no boundaries, no focus, and a lack of clarity?
According to Michael Hyatt, the result is low productivity.
In a new series of posts, Hyatt deals with improving personal productivity on all levels. In this first installment, he speaks about FOMO (the fear of missing out) and the harmful effects to our work output.
In today’s society, it is difficult to say no, turn off social media, or decline a social invitation. What if we miss something? But the fear of missing out drives us into excess. We spend our time focusing on “good” things instead of the “great” things that are more in line with our destiny and goals. So we say “yes”…
- to new clients because we fear missing out on income opportunities.
- to your boss because we fear missing out on praise or leadership.
- to new training because we fear missing out on learning a new skill.
- to lunch invites because we fear missing out on key networking.
Hyatt offers 5 Steps to Overcome the Fear of Missing Out. Check it out this week as we begin to explore how to increase our productivity.
