Want to see the most expensive mistake ever?

yeah that's my bitcoind log from 2010.

I forgot what I did instead of letting it run, but whatever it was, that probably cost me $50M.

So, what? I've been having trouble these past few nights going to sleep, and it's the one and only FOMO that's been keeping me up.

And I wish this was an isolated occurence.

But here's the thing:

  1. FOMO happens more in a space that's accelerating.
  2. The way to deal with FOMO is this: you can choose to be upset about it, or you can let it tell you that 1) you hang out in places where cool stuff happens, and 2) you were right but maybe you made a wrong call at the last minute.
  3. You can learn from it or you can let it kill you.
