Description

Regret is one of the most common negative emotions we experience as humans. Yet, most people are reluctant to explore or even talk about their regrets with others because of the growing ‘no regrets’ philosophy that demonizes the presence of regret. 


However, when used properly, regret can be a powerful tool by illuminating where our values and priorities lie, which can help us avoid making the same mistakes in the future. 


If you want to transform your regrets into actionable advice and change the way you live your life, you won’t want to miss this interview with Daniel Pink, bestselling author and expert on regret. 


Daniel is the author of five books, most recently The Power of Regret, which outlines how regret can reveal the pathway to living our best life. He is also the creator of The American Regret Project and The World Regret Survey, which have interviewed thousands of people about their biggest regrets in life. 


In this episode of YAP, Daniel and Hala talk about why we need regret and what it can teach us. They dive into the four foundational regrets and why people experience regrets of inaction far more than regrets of action. They discuss how to reframe your self-talk in order to cultivate compassion for yourself and how to consult your future self to make informed decisions.

- “Me search” 


- How we process regret 


- Counterfactuals 


- The only people who don’t have regrets
