The analytical mind does not serve us well.  Very interesting talk.

Peace and enlightenment.
May we see the emptiness of all phenomena

The video shows as private for me, but could be a region thing.

The title sounds like something Alan Watts would say. From personal experience I find that once I stop trying to control an outcome, my abilities are less hindered so I'm more likely to get the sort of outcome I was trying to get in the first place.

This is also as I have experienced things.
