Make Your Brain A Power Player


Daniel Pink, a former speechwriter for Vice President Al Gore, has studied the science of thinking.

He’s created an empire that focuses on helping improve performance by helping improve the way people think and what they think about.

The newest of his six books, When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing, spent four months on the New York Times bestseller list and was named one of the Best Books of 2018 by Amazon, iBooks, Goodreads, and several more outlets!

Pink’s books have won multiple awards and have been translated into 39 languages. His book, When, is about timing…not how to do something, but rather when to do something. Timing can make a major difference in your success or your failure. Our brainpower changes throughout the day. Therefore, we should think about when we do things that matter.

During my SiriusXM radio show interview with Dan, he revealed that studies show:

  • The kids who took math in the morning did better than those who took math the afternoon.
  • Anesthesia errors are four times more common in the afternoon than in the morning.
  • Taking mental breaks throughout the day can help performance
  • The best breaks are 10 – 20 minutes long.
  • Short naps are also helpful to recharge the body and brain.
  • Short walks outside, preferably with others, are best.
  • Successful people schedule breaks so that they can have optimal brainpower.
  • Just “powering through” used to be thought of as valiant, but science proves that’s not as effective as taking a break and then coming back rested!
  • Just as you stop to recharge your phone you should make a point to recharge your brain!

Daniel Pink’s interview will improve how you approach your life and work for ultimate performance.
