If an Editor-in-Chief takes responsibility for all aspects of her content creation, can she ever relinquish control?
People want control when they’re emotionally attached to outcomes; they want a final result to align with their preferences and therefore (desperately) attempt to shape a situation in their favor.

In this 10-minute episode, I discuss:
- Why a foundational philosophy can enhance your content strategy
- Why smart decisions are more productive than goals
- How to focus on your work ethic rather than final outcomes
