Survey: ‘FOMO’ is Making it More Difficult to Be Joyful at Work

I mean, not a person walking this Earth has not felt “inadequate” to some degree, even if those feelings were not warranted.

And according to a recent LinkedIn survey, FOMO incredibly common. Nearly two-thirds (65 percent) of professionals said that they “fear they will miss their opportunity to succeed if they don’t keep their options open.”

“To beat career FOMO, it’s important to always keep your network active and constantly seek new challenges both inside and outside of the workplace,” the report states.
