A Summary of

Learning to let go

Learning to let go of something you are invested in is often more difficult than getting invested and attached in the first place; however, it is a necessary step to open up greater opportunities in the future. 

You don’t have control

  • The most important lesson you can learn is that you don’t have control over what happens to you just as a parent doesn’t have complete control over their children and a manager doesn’t have control over their employees. 
  • Understanding this allows you to detach yourself to an extent, enabling you to let go when it is necessary. 

Don’t fall for the sunk cost fallacy

  • Often people continue to invest in a relationship or goal despite it being clear it won’t reach fruition, biased by their past involvement. 
  • Don’t be influenced by past actions, look at your future as a clean slate and then determine if something is worth spending time and energy on.
