The Power of Regret: How Looking Backward Moves Us Forward
Time to stop dwelling on past mistakes.
The Power of Regret: How Looking Backward Moves Us Forward by Daniel H. Pink (New York/ Riverhead Books 2022)
Why you should read it: A tattoo, a lie, foregoing an opportunity, not making that call or taking a chance…we all carry within us regrets of varying shapes and sizes. And rather than viewing regrets as a bad thing, they can be approached as the fuel for looking ahead, and living more fulfilling, meaningful lives. If dwelling on past mistakes, moral transgressions or the like is a favorite mental hobby (the should haves, if onlys etc.), then read this book.
