Busy Body: Part 3 - "YOLO, so Death to FOMO"
Series: Busy Body
Living in the 21st century has given us so much awareness – awareness of everything that there is to do, see, experience and accomplish. We have more options and more opportunities than anybody before us. And it’s not just schedules that are busy. Even our unscheduled time is busy. Cell phones ringing, texts dinging, breakdancing cats on YouTube. There’s so much to do that we don’t want to miss out. Moses has something to say about making the most of your life. Considering how much he accomplished in his life (he liberated a people from slavery and establishing a brand-new country… not a bad life’s work), he has something important to say about the optimal way to make a difference and leave a mark. But his approach is counterintuitive. The way to do and experience and accomplish the most is to embrace your limitations. If we learn how to recognize how limited our time on earth is, and embrace how limited we are, we will, ironically, gain the capacity to truly be productive.
