A significant portion of modern culture proposes that we live with no regrets. You may have even seen people sporting 'no regrets' tattoos. But what if that advice is significantly wrong and regret was, in fact, actually a helpful thing? That's the highly provoking question today's guest, Daniel Pink, poses in our Passion Struck podcast interview.
Pink then answers the question using scientific research and two of the most extensive mega studies ever done on the subject, which validate that regret can be an incredibly valuable experience and powerful tool for creating a well-lived life. In fact, he argues that a life entirely without regret might even do more harm than good.
With millions of copies of his #1 New York Times bestselling big-idea books sold, a renowned TED talk that has been viewed more than thirty-eight million times, lectures around the world, and the acclaim of everyone from Fortune 500 CEOs to Oprah, Daniel H. Pink has changed the way we live by changing how we think. His books have sold millions of copies, are translated into 42 languages, and won multiple awards. Today, we discuss Dan's newest bestselling book, The Power of Regret: How Looking Back Moves us Forward.

Daniel Pink Discusses The Power of Regret:
Have you ever wondered why regret is essentially about opportunity, and missed opportunities? Of course, some people have more opportunities than others. Does that affect the amount of regret they feel? Do people with more opportunities have more regrets? Should we use our regret more wisely or have less of it? How do we take advantage of regret without getting trapped in rumination? And why instead of running away from negative emotions, we should engage with them and use them to learn. And so much more.
