PPU 050: How FOMO Can Affect Your Productivity


In this episode of the Productivity Power Up podcast, we discuss FOMO, Fear of Missing Out. This is a term I only recently became aware of, but it’s something that’s impacted me for a while (and I’m sure it’s affected you in some ways as well). We define FOMO, give you some ways to determine if it’s affecting you, and talk about some ways to overcome any negative impacts to your productivity.
