For midpoint, there would normally be an uh-oh effect, watch out.

being slightly behind [at halftime] significantly increases a team's chance of winning.

So how to deal with midpoints:

  1. be aware.
  2. use midpoints to wake up rather than roll over.
  3. Imagine you're a little behind. (pretend to)

What endings do:

  1. help us energize.
  2. help us encode.
  3. help us elevate.

Whole 5 takeways from keynote:

  1. shine a light on endings to energize yourself and others.
  2. consider short fuses rather than long fuses. (shorter sprint)
  3. remember that how people behave and how situations unfold at the end deeply shape how we remember them.
  4. always give the bad news first.
  5. highlight the last chocolate.

So last, but not least,
here is Bob Jiang from Beijing, China,
summary from #SGAUS19 keynote about "The science of timing - midpoints & endings" by Daniel Pink.
