Being in control certainly has its advantages, but once in a while, you have to learn to let things run their course. Have you ever wondered just what letting go can do for you? Here are a few reasons that should help you think about it.

1. Taking a step back helps you think things through. Sometimes, all it takes is a breath of fresh air to get new ideas. Keep looking at the same charts and graphs, however, and you’re unlikely to think of anything! Having personal problems? Removing yourself from the situation can cool your head and keep you from doing something you might regret.

2. It helps your team become more independent. While keeping a tight leash on your employees gives you peace of mind, it also trains them to become too dependent on your direction. The same goes for your family--coddle them too much, and they'll never be able to stand on their own two feet.

3. Letting go is good for your health. Being too controlling keeps your muscles knotted and your nerves all bundled up, and neither is good for your body. Even if you’re swamped with work, take a few minutes each day to close your eyes and breathe.

4. It keeps you from burning out too fast. You may be all about “the work” now, but keep going at the same pace, and you're bound to burn yourself out!
