Do you suffer from FOMO (the fear of missing out)? I believe everyone in our generation has felt it at some point. 

Fomo is what makes people scroll through Facebook and Instagram all day. You always want to be up-to-date on what your friends and everybody around you are doing. What would happen if you missed your neighbor's cat's birthday? What if you didn't know that the dude you went to kindergarten with just got engaged on the Maldives? It could have tragic consequences. 

The consequences could be that you are missing out on your own life. It's Fomo in reverse. While you are busy watching the world on Facebook and Instagram, your whole life might just pass by. You could be outside meeting friends in real life, making awesome memories that you'll tell your grandkids about. 

I bet, in 50 years, nobody is going to reminisce "I remember that day when my high school sweetheart posted that picture of her new puppy dog on Facebook, and I liked it. That was the best day of my life." This already sounds ridiculous. 

We can do something now! Call your friends and set up a meeting - in person! Do it now!
