Burning Man is one of the most incredible experiences I’ve ever had. I really wanted to go again this year and join many of my friends on the playa. I also knew it wasn’t good timing for me with all of the activity I have going on in my business with my clients.
I’ve been practicing learning how to find the joy in not getting to experience the things I want in the immediate future (there’s a great book called The Molecule of More I recommend you read). I’m realizing that when I need to do something it’s probably a good sign that I actually don’t need it and look for ways to fulfill that need from exactly the experience I am currently in. A friend of mine recently introduced me to a neat concept called JOMO. Joy of missing out.
