The first gut-clench of FOMO for most people comes about 20 minutes after their parents put them to bed.
Sleeping is terrifying and boring. I get it. The journey to the land of nod was always an unwelcome one for me.
Going to bed seems like the worst option of many, much more fun or interesting things we could be doing. And to make it worse, the adults get to stay up as late as they want.
Children don’t realize that adults aren’t staying up and partying. Most of the time, they’re too tired.
Going to bed early is the real adult choice: like a drinking glass of water.
It’s insanely hard to go to bed at 9 pm. But that’s what has to happen if we want to get up and think at 5 am.
As adults, there’s nobody to stop us from staying up all night playing cowboys.
The question is, will that stop us from getting what we want tomorrow?
