MORE IDEAS FROM How to Beat F.O.B.O., From the Expert Who Coined It

For the important things you have to consider, think like a venture capitalist: jot down everything you can on the subject you're trying to decide on ( the pros, cons for example) and read it out loud.

This is almost like writing an investment memo for a V.C. investment: for this situation, the investment is of your time, money, energy, etc.

Fear of Better Options (F.O.B.O.)

F.O.B.O is our inability to decide between different options all of which are decent. It can lead us to paralysis when we’re in the process of making a decision.

F.O.B.O. means obsessively researching every possible alternative, when faced with a decision, fearing we’ll miss out on the best one. It can lead to indecision, regret and is a serious threat to our happiness.

The fear of missing out (FOMO)
FOMO = the compulsive desire to experience something (or be somewhere) motivated by the fear of what you will potentially lose. And this idea of loss is usually imagined. FOMO is that irrational belief that everyone is always having more fun than you, at all times.
