YOUniversity with Daniel Pink

The Power of Regret: How Looking Backward Moves Us Forward feat. Daniel Pink

Everybody has regrets, Daniel H. Pink explains in The Power of Regret. They’re a universal and healthy part of being human. And understanding how regret works can help us make smarter decisions, perform better at work and school, and bring greater meaning to our lives.

Drawing on research in social psychology, neuroscience, and biology, Pink debunks the myth of the “no regrets” philosophy of life. And using the largest sampling of American attitudes about regret ever conducted as well as his own World Regret Survey—which has collected regrets from more than 15,000 people in 105 countries—he lays out the four core regrets that each of us has. These deep regrets offer compelling insights into how we live and how we can find a better path forward.

As he did in his bestsellers Drive, When, and A Whole New Mind, Pink lays out a dynamic new way of thinking about regret and frames his ideas in ways that are clear, accessible, and pragmatic. Packed with true stories of people’s regrets as well as practical takeaways for reimagining regret as a positive force, The Power of Regret shows how we can live richer, more engaged lives.

Praise for The Power of Regret

“I love that Daniel Pink is taking on one of the best (and toughest) teachers in my life—regret. I’ve always known that regret deepened my connection to myself and to others, but now, thanks to Dan’s research and storytelling, I understand why.  The idea of ‘no regrets’ doesn’t mean living with courage. It means living without reflection. The world needs this book and more reflection. Now.”
— Brené Brown, Ph.D., New York Times bestselling author of Dare to Lead

“As he so often does, Daniel Pink transformed my understanding of a subject and convinced me of the power of regret. Through his remarkable research, I learned not only what people regret, but also how to optimize those regrets. Every time I read a Daniel Pink book, I walk away a better and more informed person.”
— Sanjay Gupta, M.D., Chief Medical Correspondent, CNN

BONUS: All attendees will receive a copy of Dan’s book, The Power of Regret: How Looking Backward Moves Us Forward (A $20 value.)
