Welcome to the What's Next! podcast with Tiffani Bova.
Our honored guest this week is longtime friend to the show Daniel H. Pink. Dan is the author of five New York Times bestsellers, including his latest, “The Power of Regret: How Looking Backward Moves Us Forward,” published in February 2022. His other books include the New York Times bestsellers "When" and "A Whole New Mind" — as well as the #1 New York Times bestsellers "Drive" and "To Sell is Human." Dan’s books have won multiple awards, have been translated into 42 languages, and have sold millions of copies around the world. He lives in Washington, DC, with his family.
THIS EPISODE IS PERFECT FOR… those who are looking to face their regrets head on and emerge with an acceptance and understanding of the past so they can improve their future.
TODAY’S MAIN MESSAGE… There is a societal norm to proclaim “no regrets” as personal mantras for a life well-lived, but are we missing out by neglecting our feelings of regret? By ignoring our regrets, we are denying a key part of the human experience. Everyone has regret, but how we reckon with them – to try to accept and understand them – can ultimately help us make better choices for our lives.
WHAT I LOVE MOST… Sharing our regrets, vulnerabilities, and insecurities with coworkers, friends, and family won’t make people think less of you. The real strength comes from people who can empathize with you and build relationships from the shared humanity of learning to deal with your regrets.
