I just finished Daniel Pink’s “A Whole New Mind” after about 2 months of trying to “get my read on” (it takes discipline…  go figure).  With the holidays and starting my own business (CreateWOW), I was having troubles committing the time I needed to sit down and focus on reading and figuratively feed the monster that Michael Wagner awoke 7 years ago with “Orbiting The Giant Hairball.”

ANYWAY… Pink’s book inspired me.  Not simply because he says right brainers (the more empathetic, creative and “Big Picture”- type people) are  destined to run the show; it proved to me the track I have been on for the last 20 years hasn’t been for not.  Repeatedly, I was told to “get my head out of the clouds,” and “get a secure paying job that you can simply do day-in and day-out… never mind the love of what you do.” (yes, I had some pretty optimistic folks around me back then.) Yet, the right brain in me prevailed…  And according to “A Whole New Mind” I didn’t have a choice.

I planned on doing a book review on it for the CreateWOWmarketing blog, but found this video post by Elaine Fogel that did it one better (she interviewed Pink, himself).

So here you are. A Whole New Mind in six minutes (took me 2 months…) 🙂

Thank you again to Daniel Pink, Elaine Fogel and Mike Wagner for keeping the monster fed and constantly encouraging others to create and make the world a better place for us to live and do business.

Be watching for a new program being developed by The Brand Chef and CreateWOW to further encourage reading and fostering creativity! (Yes, that’s how much these books did for me… 😉

  1. Many thanks for referring to my recent video interview of Daniel Pink on MarketingProfs. I, too, have found him to be quite remarkable in his thought leadership. I am now in the middle of reading his newer book entitled Drive.

    • Hi Elaine!

      I really appreciate having you stop by and commenting. The interview was PERFECT and really helps the end users understand the book and Daniel’s vision!

      I too have “Drive” in hand. It’s about 4th on my “To Read” list, but after “A Whole New Mind” I may skip ahead and keep the Pink momentum moving!


      Thanks again for stopping by and commenting! Have a spectacular day!

      Keep Cooking!

    Keep creating…time to read,

    • Mike –

      I can never thank you enough for being the mentor you are!
