When by Daniel Pink

Good news never waits.

This has been an axiom I have trusted most of my adult life, because in my experience, it has been true. Whenever I’m preparing to hear good news or bad news, the longer the news takes to reach me it is probably bad news. Bad news takes its time because the messengers always seem to put it off. No one wants to bear bad news, so we procrastinate until its inevitable.

This is just one example of how we use timing to dictate our lives. This book is a study on timing. It is not a “how to” book but a “when to” book. It is about how we can use time to make us smarter, more effective, more efficient, and overall better.

There are several interesting takeaways from this book: Drinking coffee before a nap. The difference between slumping and jumping during events. How the beginning and end of events are usually the most important pieces.

This book will make you think. It’s interesting and a quick read.
