The 10 Most Important Lessons I’ve Ever Learned

On January 30, I will host a one-of-kind online gathering called The 10 Most Important Lessons I’ve Ever Learned, featuring guest appearances from Malcolm Gladwell, Anne Lamott, and Al Gore.


The event will be open exclusively to people who have pre-ordered my new book, The Power of Regret, to thank them for their crucial early support.

In the session I will discuss – yep – the 10 most important lessons I’ve ever learned about work, success, happiness, and life in general. Among them:

  • The best way to make a decision
  • The best way to get a good idea
  • The best way to persuade someone (including yourself)
  • The best three words to say regularly
  • And more!

The event will also feature appearances from some of the people who've taught me these lessons, including:

  • Anne Lamott, mega-bestselling author
  • Malcolm Gladwell, mega-bestselling author and podcaster
  • Al Gore, former US Vice President 

The event will take place on January 30 at 5pm ET. It will not be repeated. This will be the first, last, and only instance of this event. In other words, if you don't sign up, you might regret it!

(To accommodate readers in non-US time zones, we will make a recording available on a password-protected site, but only for 48 hours after the broadcast. Then it will disappear forever.)
