I’m back with NYT bestselling author and top TED speaker, Dan Pink to walk through his personal habits for success, and this habits show had a twist.

Coming off our talk in episode 969 where we discussed regrets, which is the topic of his brand new book, The Power of Regret, I asked him how his research on regrets changed any of his habits.

What you heard in that intro clip was him leading off with his top one, Connection regrets, and now reaching out to people more.

We hit on some other habits he’s changed as a result of this regrets focus, such as he realized in the Foundation regrets piece he’s actually been too frugal over his lifetime.

I also found the irony in him citing he lived in a busy urban area and prefers running on a treadmill, especially since he fell on a sidewalk while running and now has a bent pinky.

Dan Pink with…a bent pinky.

Priceline: 

I ran a survey recently asking what personal goals people were most excited about. Number one by far was, experiences, with travel being primary. If you travel much at all, you know how prices can vary and result in you saving, or not, hundreds if not thousands of dollars. This is where PRICELINE is king. With PRICELINE you can save up to 60% on your favorite hotels and you can get exclusive deals on car rentals, flights, and more. And when you save more, you can do more. Bundling services is where you can save the most, and anytime I travel I’m generally spending money on at least two of flights, hotels or rentals. At this point I can’t imagine just paying retail or trying to piecemeal all those services together. 

Got to priceline.com to plan your next trip and save yourself a significant amount of money. The more money I save, the more I’m prone to spend on things I enjoy, like food and wine and food and entertainment and food… Go to priceline.com
