The Barbarian Book Club: Book of the Month (April 2021): When – Daniel H. Pink

Greetings Barbarians! Long days and pleasant nights!

One of my greatest life lessons is that it is not a matter of if but a matter of when. Anything can go wrong in life, and sometimes the blow that we did not see is most devastating. We have seen this countless times in boxing or any combat sport.  

Speaking of Boxing, my money is Ben Askren! I would like to know your thoughts on the Paul Vs. Askren fight in the comment section. 

You cannot be completely comfortable and complacent in life. A degree of vigilance and tenacity is a must to achieve anything in life. My day of reckoning is at hand; I am about to go homeless anytime soon. I am still hopeful that this situation will turn out okay but, I am also figuring out what is next for me.

Now back to the topic.

Do not get me wrong – this is our fault; we are accountable for what is happening. One of the mistakes I made was thinking that this sort of thing would not happen to me. 

Wouldn’t it be ideal if we could time our actions perfectly? 

Wouldn’t it be perfect if we have the foresight to see when to act? 

Wouldn’t it be great if we could see which opportunities presented to us are worth taking?

When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing by Daniel H. Pink is about timing as a science. 

Our day-to-day lives are composed of a series of “when” events. 

Yet, most of the time,  we rely on intuition in our decision-making. The book draws from a lot of research from psychology, economics, and biology.

Time fascinates me; it is the master that I serve the most. Time is constant; it moves the same way every time but different for each person. Comprehending the mechanics of perfect timing is astounding. I love reading about the nitty-gritty of timing. 

It was an informative as well as a fascinating read. I learned a lot from reading the book; when was the time that I am the most productive. Or the time that I am the most innovative and creative. 

I recommend it to anyone who enjoys time management and organization.
