Learn about the transformative power of regret. Looked at in fresh and imaginative ways, the author explains how we can enlist them to make smarter decisions, perform better, and deepen our sense of meaning and purpose.
“No regrets” is often proclaimed as a philosophy of life. That’s nonsense, says Daniel Pink, the #1 New York Times–bestselling author of When and Drive. Regrets are a fundamental part of our lives, and everyone has them.
In The Power of Regret: How Looking Backward Moves Us Forward, Pink reveals the transformative power of our most misunderstood emotion: regret. He asserts that if we reckon with regrets in fresh and imaginative ways, we can enlist them to make smarter decisions, perform better at work and school, and deepen our sense of meaning and purpose.
Drawing on new research in psychology, neuroscience, economics, and biology to challenge widely-held assumptions about human behavior, plus the largest sampling of American attitudes about regret ever conducted, Pink identifies the four core regrets that most people have. By understanding what people regret the most, we can understand what they value the most. With Pink’s signature blend of big ideas and practical takeaways, The Power of Regret offers an indispensable guide for a life well lived.
Pink’s books include the bestsellers When and A Whole New Mind, as well as the #1 New York Times bestsellers Drive and To Sell is Human.
Here’s how we’ll stay safe together
Bring your mask, vaccination card and ID. All attendees 12 and older will need to show proof of vaccination before entering the theater and are required to wear a mask during performances. Currently, mask exemptions are in effect for performers, who will only remove their masks when actively performing and will be socially distanced from audience members.
