Dan Pink - The scientific secrets of perfect timing, the new world of work and a bestselling author’s advice to writers #2

Dan Pink – The scientific secrets of perfect timing, the new world of work and a bestselling author’s advice to writers

Dan Pink is author of 6 New York Times bestsellers and has been named one of the top 15 business thinkers in the world. It’s a particular treat for me to speak with Dan because his early books like Free Agent Nation and A whole new mind inspired my first book Screw Work Let’s Play. And his most recent book When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing is absolutely fascinating too.

We cover a lot of ground in this interview from what time you should get up in the morning in order to be productive to the new skills you need to stay valuable in the 21st century to how to write a New York Times bestseller. I hope you enjoy it.

Before venturing out on his own 20 years ago, Dan worked in several positions in politics and government, including serving as chief speechwriter to Vice President Al Gore.

Daniel H. Pink is the author of six provocative books — including his newest, When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing, which has spent four months on the New York Times bestseller list.
