A Break From FOMO

The so-called 'FOMO'

The so-called 'FOMO'

FOMO (fear of missing out) refers to almost everything that, as humans, we have always been afraid to miss out on: luxurious travels, expensive goods, delicious food. 

While dealing with the current pandemic, we can finally take a break from this fear, as no one has all the above-mentioned experiences or items anymore. Everybody is stuck in their house now, doing home office or nothing at all.

Use your time wisely

During this tough period we are all currently facing, there is a positive aspect worth being taken into account: staying isolated at home can provide us with unique chances. 

For instance, we can now use this time to spend endless hours with our family or doing all the things we have so much wanted to do for the longest time and have never had the chance to do, because work would always come first.

Don't reinvent the wheel

Mimic and get help from someone who’s already learned it to get tips and save time.

In order to achieve mastery faster, our first step should be to consult the top players in the field and model the path they have already carved out for us.

Deconstruct the skill

...into its basic, fundamental components, to find the most important things to practice first. This shows that very few things actually make a difference in any aspect of our lives, including learning.

Use the Pareto Principle: which describes a goal of generating 80 percent of results by putting in 20 percent of the effort.

The Real Career Landscape

The Real Career Landscape
If you can figure out how to get a reasonably accurate picture of the real career landscape out there, you have a massive edge over everyone else, most of whom will be using outdated convention...

The career pitfall

Careers used to be kind of like a 40-year tunnel. You picked your tunnel, and once you were in, that was that. You worked in that profession for 40 years or so before the tunnel spit you out on the other side into your retirement.

Today’s career landscape isn’t a lineup of tunnels, it’s a massive, impossibly complex, rapidly changing science laboratory. 

Why Career-path-carving is important.

Time. A typical career will take up somewhere between 20% and 60% of your meaningful adult time.

Quality of Life. Your career has a major effect on all your non-career hours.

Impact. Whatever shape your career path ends up taking, the world will be altered by it.

Identity. We tell people about our careers by telling them what we are.

A fraction of our attention

A fraction of our attention

When we put into our daily activities only a fraction of our attention:

  • We never fully give ourselves to any task.
  • Our minds become stressed from the neverend...

Meticulous attention

To give your meticulous attention to a task, a person, an action, a moment means to give it everything you have right now: all of your concentration, time, love and devotion.

The practice of Meticulous attention

  • Notice each activity that you’re doing as a separate event.
  • For every event, ask yourself what you can do to give it your full attention. Turn off your phone? Turn your body fully toward the person asking for your attention?
  • Give the moment your undivided attention. Let go of thoughts about the future and past and turn toward what you’re facing even more.
