Daniel H. Pink and the Nonsense of Having "No Regrets‪"‬ Leadership NOW with Dan Pontefract

    • Business

“No regrets.” You’ve heard people proclaim it as a philosophy of life.

That’s nonsense, even dangerous, says Daniel H. Pink in his latest book, "The Power of Regret: How Looking Backward Moves Us Forward."

Pink sits down with the other "dp," (Dan Pontefract) and they get into a rollicking conversation on the topic of regret.

Pink discusses his research including American attitudes about regret as well as his own World Regret Survey—which has collected regrets from more than 16,000 people in 105 countries—where he identifies the four core regrets that most people have.

Pink discusses the four regrets arguing they operate as a “photographic negative” of the good life. By understanding what people regret the most, we can understand what they value the most. Tune in and learn more about regret. You can't live a life with "no regrets."
