Welcome to the What's Next! podcast with Tiffani Bova.
This week’s awesome guest is Dan Pink, the author of six books, including When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing. Thinkers50 named Dan as one of the Top 15 Business Thinkers in the World, and his TED talk The Puzzle of Motivation is one of the 10 most-watched TED talks of all time.
THIS EPISODE IS PERFECT FOR… anyone looking to improve their likelihood of success in both their personal and professional lives.
TODAY’S MAIN MESSAGE… Did you know that a book about timing decisions didn’t exist until Dan Pink wrote it in early 2018? When you think about it, we make multiple “when” decisions in our life: When should I exercise during the day? When should I start a product? When should I quit a project? When should I quit my job?
Dan’s diligent research into the foundation behind our “when” decisions led him to discover that people mostly disregard the question of when and instead focus on what and who and how.
WHAT I LOVE MOST… Breaks are more important than you think.
We need to start thinking about breaks as part of our performance not a deviation from performance. Dan’s research showed him that professionals are the ones who take breaks, and the amateurs are the ones who don’t.
A break might look like a 10-minute walk outside, a nap, or a trip to your company’s meditation room. No matter what — your performance will improve.
IF YOU WANT TO STEP UP YOUR GAME… Be more conscious of how the forces of time and timing are affecting how you behave.
