wf-daniel-pink-file

Multiple New York Times bestselling author Daniel Pink stopped by The Writer Files to chat about his secrets for getting words onto the page.

Mr. Pink is the author of five provocative titles on the subjects of business, work, and human behavior — including To Sell is Human: The Surprising Truth About Moving Others — and has written for the New York Times, Harvard Business Review, The Sunday Telegraph, Fast Company, and Wired.

In addition to having one of the most viewed TED talks of all time — “The puzzle of motivation” — Dan recently hosted and co-executive produced the TV series “Crowd Control” for the National Geographic Channel.

In this file, host Kelton Reid and Daniel Pink discuss:

  • Why you should never check email before you write
  • The effectiveness of word count quotas
  • Why the adage “butt-in-chair” really works
  • How to structure your writing schedule to beat “resistance”
  • The author’s exhaustive reading recommendations
  • His fantasy Chipotle table guests
  • And why you need to get over yourself and get to work
