Episode #84: The Joy of missing out
The “what” is easy. Craftwork is a specialty coffee shop and vibrant membership-based workspace with locations in Fort Worth (Foundry, Camp Bowie, Magnolia) and Austin (Domain). We serve craft coffee and are a connected coworking space. But you knew that already. Our “why” is our heart – we desire to create spaces and places where our members and customers experience connection and community.
We hope this finds you well.
Having a device that gives limitless input at our fingertips is an amazing benefit in many regards. This benefit also carries with it a serious downside. Whether it is advertising tailored to us because of our monitored behavior (yikes), work we can’t or won’t put away, or scrolling through images of an acquaintance’s recent perfect family trip to the beach, this input often leaves us feeling anxious or like we aren’t doing enough. With nervous laughter, many of us can identify with FOMO, the Fear Of Missing Out.
This is why we believe the Joy of Missing Out, or JOMO, is such an important idea to embrace in 2020.
The full JOMO Manifesto created by Christina Crook is too wonderful not to recommend reading in its entirety. The primary themes of JOMO include choosing creation over consumption, contentment over comparison, and the personal over the digital. These themes can help us build better days and create memories instead of consuming content. JOMO is a refreshing wakeup call to what we already intuitively know. It is a call towards conscious habit creation to create and be content. It is a reminder that by making space for human connection, we are making space for joy. Here’s to all of us experiencing more of the joy of missing out in our lives.
Free drip coffee when you share a takeaway you had from the JOMO Manifesto with our team. (Limit of 1 free drink per customer. Offer expires 1/27/19.)
