Potential Guidance for Reducing FOMO–>IO

July 12, 2018 | Posted By mbaloney

As shared last week, FOMO can lead to addictive checking of all your social and work media channels resulting in increased stress and decreased productivity. Dr. Axe [https://draxe.com/nomophobia/] provides a five-step process for decreasing cell phone addiction. Could also be applicable to e-mail inbox addiction. Real-time messaging certainly has some benefits, e.g., alerts for traffic congestion, a loved one in trouble, a client’s critical complaint. Human bandwidth, however, is a limited resource. Thus, some combination of message prioritization and behavior modification is needed to regain control of our lives from magnetic FOMO. IORG’s October 23, 2018 IO Day program will address this FOMO attraction-avoidance dilemma. Stay tunes for forthcoming announcement details. MartyB #IORGFORUM
