Been there, done that

The fear of missing out, or FOMO, happens because we find new experiences more exciting than repeat experiences. But research also shows us that we will repeatedly listen to our favourite song or rewatch favourite movies and TV shows.

While many believe that if you want to look interesting, you need to show that you're open to new experiences, we take the value of delving into the known for granted.

Asking The Wrong Questions

Nowadays, we tend to consume too much of our energy exerted upon the wrong questions. Whenever we’re feeling lost, we’re promoted to ask ourselves these rational questions:

  • “What do I want?”
  • “Who do I want to become?”
  • “What do I want my life to look like in five years?”
  • “How can I achieve the success I so desperately crave in my field?”

These are not exactly the right questions we should begin with. They assume you know exactly what it is you want, and that’s often not the case. They also tend to be self-centered and thus neglect to factor in the potential impact we will have on others.

Invisible work refers to work that is unpaid, unnoticed and unacknowledged. These tasks include cooking dinner, assisting children with homework, or making a dentist appointment.

Invisible labour also appears in other sectors. For example, doing unpaid work for the "exposure" that could lead to industry connections, or a task outside of your work duties that could give you access to better "opportunities." While it may be true, it is still invisible labour.

Creativity is a trainable skill

Research shows that with practise, we can all learn to become more creative.

When we hear of people known for their remarkable creativity, it's quick to assume that they are born different from the rest of us. We forget that these creative geniuses often spent years working on projects that did not turn out that well. Many hours of sharpening their thinking or skills finally created something unique.

Maximisers vs Satisficers

There are two main types of decision-makers:

  • Maximisers: They want to ensure they get the most out of their choices.
  • Satisficers: They tend to adopt a 'good enough' approach.

Each one has its benefits and drawbacks. Understanding which one you are can help improve your choices.
