The Power of Moments

By Chip Heath and Dan Heath

The Power of Moments helps the reader understand how moments in lives can make a difference and how to create these extraordinary moments. It is filled with many simple and useful suggestions.

The authors point out, in easy to comprehend writing, how to change what your moments are so they can be even better. They encourage the reader “think in moments to spot the occasions that are worthy of investment,” and to create the defining moments instead of accidentally having them happen. In short, the idea is to focus on the moments as if they were viewed from a different perspective and then to “solve the problem” through elevation, insight, pride, and connection.

Golden Nugget: When writing about building peaks, the authors said, “One simple diagnostic to gauge whether you’ve transcended the ordinary is if people feel the need to pull out their cameras.” (p. 63)
