    Morgan,

    Love your content on Fool. There is no doubt that we often create our own problems by over-thinking, by trying to over-tweak our strategies around investing and around life-planning, and learning to let go and have faith in one's informed decisions is a kind of discipline that leads to personal freedom and strength.
