In our conversation, we dive into the various insights from his recently published book - The Power of Regret. He calls this effort a regret reclamation project and says that living a life with no regrets might be a wasted opportunity to learn about what we truly care about and therefore might be a missed opportunity in leading a life of happiness, meaning and fulfilment.
