Posts featuring Dan Pink’s Pinkcast videos have been a mainstay of my blog for the past year and a half. In fact, this is my 23rd such post.
The first 22 posts included topics such as:
- What If?? Mental Subtraction of Positive Events
- Creating a Book of Small Experiments
- Better Feedback in Just 19 Words
- A Simple, but Powerful, Bedtime Routine
- The Power of Two, Two-Minute Rules (in Less Than Two Minutes)
- The 10-5 Rule for Civility
- Working in a Red Light District May Boost Your Productivity
- Follow Your Passion? Nah, Try This Instead.
In each one, I was a big fan of the message Dan was trying to get across.
However, I cannot say the same thing for his latest Pinkcast, released today. He refers to it as how to make the perfect pandemic lunch.
The video starts off strong, putting peanut butter on a piece of bread, but then it goes quickly downhill after that.
Next comes pickles. Are you serious? I can’t think of anything more disgusting to put on a peanut butter sandwich (or any sandwich for that matter).
Then he tops it off with Sriracha sauce. Now I don’t mind Sriracha sauce, but mixed with peanut butter and pickles is a waste of the sauce.
So, using the advice from one of Dan’s previous posts about giving feedback, here’s what I want to say to Dan:
“I’m giving you these comments because I have very high expectations and I know that you can reach them.”
Here’s the video:
