WHEN – the scientific secrets of perfect timing by Daniel H. Pink.
This book provides tons of practical insights on time. What time of day best supports organizing a team call. When should you complete your most complete analytical tasks.
Supported by solid research, but presented in a light story telling mode Daniel Pink shares valuable insights such as:
- In the morning we are alert, our vigilance or “inhibitory control” helps our brains solve analytical problems. But for creative insights problems you actually need your guard to be down, it is best to complete these tasks in the afternoon.
- People feel increasingly warm towards others in the morning, peaking around lunch time, then it drops back with a dip around 16.00 hr, increasing to a peak around 20.00 hr.
