How To Release Control Of Your Team’s Work
Source: Accidental Creative
Author: Todd Henry
Leaders who micromanage their team limit its effectiveness by controlling the work to the extent of their personal reach. To retain and encourage talented employees, managers must learn how to release their control by understanding situations where they tend to take control and the reasons why.
Managers should embrace realistic stakes in projects, establish checkpoints and limits, and teach the team how to solve problems through effective collaboration for better results. Todd Henry, a renowned creativity consultant, encourages leaders to establish practices that lead to everyday brilliance.
Some Thoughts on Becoming Self-Actualized

Author: Scott Young
In this article, the author explores how some people seem to abruptly change their lives by becoming better versions of themselves seemingly overnight. The author calls this phenomenon discovering self-actualization. The changes are triggered by a fundamental restructuring of belief systems, which often results in a sudden, pervasive increase in self-efficacy.
The article also discusses the common features and potential pitfalls of such a change, and the factors that may increase the likelihood of such a transformative change.
How to Beat Procrastination
Source: Wait But Why
Author: Tim Urban
The procrastinator is in the bad habit, bordering on addiction, of letting the monkey win. He continues to have the intention to control the monkey, but he puts forth a hapless effort, using the same proven-not-to-work methods he’s used for years, and deep down, he knows the monkey will win.
He vows to change, but the patterns just stay the same. So why would an otherwise capable person put forth such a lame and futile effort again and again?
