Could Your FOMO Kill You?

Could Your FOMO Kill You? | Transforming society | Scoop.it
The fear of missing out, also known as FOMO, is a real phenomenon. And it only seems to be getting worse as our technology forces us to realize that there's more and more to miss out on.

Oh, and it might be killing you.

That's what an in-depth stud...
Antoine Moore's insight:

These days everyone is a victim of choice overload. It is easy to feel   overwhelmed, frustrated, and unfulfilled.  You don't have to feel this way. One of the strongest skills to practice in the 21st Century is the power to say "NO".  Prioritize and focus rather than trying to do everything.  I know it's a constant struggle for me.  How about you?

Antoine Moore's insight:

Independent workers now account for one third of the American workforce.

"People really put together their lives in such interesting, different ways now. And I think that what happens is when you work independently you have to really think about it more. You think about how you plan your day more, where your money comes from, and once you start to think about it, it gets you down a different path."

Gold standard was bad, but Bitcoin standard is even worse

Gold standard was bad, but Bitcoin standard is even worse | Transforming society | Scoop.it

In mathematics, when you write a paper, you are always standing firmly on the shoulders of generations of common knowledge that you don't need to prove yourself - you can safely assume your readers agree with you on the matter. In the same way, I will assume that we agree on the following statement: Implementing gold standard in the modern economy will have no beneficial effect for the mankind, but may have very dire consequences. This will allow us to go forward with the reasoning, moving onto the recently hot topic of the most popular cryptocurrency.
