“No regrets” is an American slogan along with “No Fear” and “Just Do It.”

Yet more often than not we don’t just do it, having no fear is psychopathic, and having no regrets means you have no sorrow for ever hurting anyone or making a mistake.

Regret is simply recognizing sadness or disappointment about something we did we wish we hadn’t, or we didn’t do and wish we had, and Dan Pink’s research showcases it’s a massive power if we’ll recognize it and learn from it.

Not as he said, reject it or wallow in it.

This is my second time having Dan on the show.

He’s a multi-best selling author, and when I say best selling, I don’t mean one day on an obscure Amazon book category like Amish Romance, but the actual New York Times bestseller list.

You’ll likely recognize his books such as A Whole New Mind, Drive, To Sell Is Human, and When.

His books have sold millions of copies, have been translated into forty-two languages.

He also has a TED talk titled “The Puzzle of Motivation” which has somewhere north of 30 million views.

Dan is an author like Brene’ Brown who leads with research, and he’s now turned his focus to regrets with his new book, The Power of Regret: How Looking Backward Moves Us Forward.

I asked him back on the show the moment I saw the book title and you’re about to hear me dig in with him on how we can harness regret for our progress, not suffer or run from it.
