|Author Daniel Pink invited readers, to tell him about their regrets. |
The response was so extraordinary — in both numerical volume and emotional depth — that he scrapped what he thought would be my next book and decided instead to write a book about regret.
For the last six months, Pink has been working on a book that takes a fresh look at the science of regret — and shows how to enlist this seemingly negative emotion as a positive force in our lives.
As part of the research, he’s just launched the World Regret Survey, an effort to gather tens of thousands of regrets from people around the world.
If you have 3 minutes, would you be willing to participate?
|The survey asks only four short questions. Your responses are anonymous. And your contribution will be a huge help in understanding this complex topic. (You can even complete the survey in Chinese or Spanish.)|
Once you’re at the site, you’ll also be able to use our nifty interactive map to see regrets already submitted from more than 3,000 people in dozens of countries and most U.S. states.
Thanks for considering. Even more, thanks for inspiring this new book. It’s a writer’s joy to connect with readers like you.
