Monday, we’re talking about timing. The writer Daniel Pink says timing is a science, and knowing how it works can make us better at our jobs and more creative. It’s not just about doing the things we do, but knowing when.

Timing is everything. No, really. It is. And what’s more, it isn’t an art so much as a science. The author Daniel Pink has worked his way through mountains of research, and he’s convinced that when you do something is just as important as how you do it. He’s learned that there are hidden patterns in the day, in the year, and coded in our biology that shape our decisions and our actions. Pink joins us to explore how using these hidden patterns and getting the timing right can change our lives. (Repeat)

Daniel Pink is the author of the books Drive and A Whole New Mind. His latest book is called When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing [Indie bookstores|Amazon|Audible].
