July 31, 2019  • Aspen Community Programs

Featuring Daniel PinkNew York Times bestselling author of WhenTo Sell is HumanDrive, and A Whole New Mind, in conversation with Aspen Institute President and CEO Dan Porterfield. Pink will discuss the emerging science of timing — including the hidden pattern of the day and how to recast our schedules to navigate it, how to take breaks that restore mental energy and acuity, why midpoints (of a project or even a life) sometimes drag us down and sometimes fire us up, and what rowing teams, choirs, and lunch deliveries in India can teach us about group synchronization, purpose, and belonging.
