From FOMO to FOBO - Fear of Better Options

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 3:10 pm on 20 May 2020

Patrick McGinnis didn't invent Fear of Missing Out, but he did coin the term FOMO more than 16 years ago.

Now he says there's a new issue stalking our sensibilities, FOBO, Fear of Better Options.

He explains the biology of wanting the best and what to do when we're overwhelmed with choices.
