Daniel Pink – Live on Stage in London

The Power of Regret

Forget what you think you know about regret. Blending big ideas, captivating stories, and practical takeaways, join the legendary business thinker for an indispensable guide to a life well-lived.

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

One of the world’s leading authorities on work, creativity, and human behaviour, Daniel H. Pink is here to make us think again about this crucial and misunderstood emotion. Everybody has regrets. They’re a fundamental part of our lives. And if we reckon with them in fresh and imaginative ways, we can enlist our regrets to make smarter decisions, perform better at work and school, and deepen our sense of meaning and purpose.

In this live, on-stage event, Pink will draw on research in psychology, neuroscience, economics and biology to challenge widely-held assumptions about emotions and behaviour. Using the largest sampling of attitudes about regret ever conducted from his own World Regret Survey – which has collected regrets from more than 16,000 people in 105 countries – he identifies the four core regrets that most people have.

These four regrets, Pink argues, operate as a ‘photographic negative’ of the good life. By understanding what people regret the most, we can understand what they value the most. And by following the simple, science-based, three-step process that he sets out, we can transform our regrets in a positive force for working smarter and living better.

Praise for Daniel Pink’s The Power of Regret:

I love that Daniel Pink is taking on one of the best (and toughest) teachers in my life—regret. …The world needs this book.” —Brené Brown, Ph.D., New York Times bestselling author of Dare to Lead

“If you have long assumed that ‘no regrets’ is the way to live life, then this book is for you. The incomparably candid, clear, and concise Daniel Pink summarizes the latest science on looking backward on what could have been and shows how it can vault you forward to a happier, more productive, and principled life.” —Angela Duckworth, bestselling author of Grit
