Develop Perfect Timing with Dan Pink

Today I want you to learn from Dan Pink, who’s convinced that there’s a perfect time of day to do almost anything.

He discusses how most people function throughout the day in regards to timing, arguing that each person has a high point, a low point, and a recovery period. Analytic work should happen during the peak, administrative during the trough, and brainstorming/ideation during the recovery.

Knowing when to do things, and not just how, can make all the difference in your daily productivity.

“Most of us move through the day in three stages: a peak, a trough, a recovery.” 

On this episode of My Quest for the Best we’re sharing this interview with Dan, who’s teaching us how to have perfect timing.
