To continue a theme here, my friend Anil just wrote about the Joy of Missing Out (JOMO).
People have asked me if I am going to unfollow everyone or simply quit Twitter and I’ve been replying that I don’t think that is a solution. I enjoy Twitter more than any other site (probably more than MLKSHK?) and so unfollowing would remove something that I do enjoy.
I cited Paul Ford unfollowing people because he figured out what he needed to do, but that’s not my answer.
I think Anil nailed it. I have to learn to enjoy missing out by not thinking about it as “missing out”. Consciously deciding not to check in because there are other things I want to do with my time is what I have been doing the last couple of nights.
So far it is working pretty well.
