Deep Dive with Ali Abdaal

There's a lot of things human beings crave in life - happiness, knowledge, status, wealth, abundance - and most of us embark on seeking out this relentless pursuit of success without really knowing how to juggle all of our aspirations and goals in life. But what if I told you that there's a way to achieve all of these things and have them exist in harmony, no matter who you are, or where you start out in life? Today I'm joined by the genius mind who has done just that and is inspiring so many others to unlock their potential too. Steven Bartlett is one of the most brilliant entrepreneurs of our time, a best-selling author, investor and truly engaging speaker. As the founder of Social Chain and a number of other wildly successful companies he's reshaped digital marketing. He was the youngest ever Dragon on Dragons’ Den, and he's the host of the No.1 podcast Diary of a CEO. In the conversation we talk about his incredible backstory of how he went from a university drop out to a multimillion dollar entrepreneur and the fundamental principles he's learned along the way that have contributed to his success and are detailed in his new life-changing book 'Diary of a CEO - The 33 Laws of Business and Life'. I hope you enjoy the conversation as much as I did :)

What is Deep Dive with Ali Abdaal ?

Dr Ali Abdaal is the world’s most followed productivity expert and author of Feel-Good Productivity, the brand new book that reveals why the secret to productivity isn’t discipline, it’s joy. In his podcast, Deep Dive, Ali sits down with inspiring creators, thinkers, entrepreneurs and high performers to help listeners build lives that they love.

Ali’s cheerful style, positive approach, and well-researched content have made him a trusted voice when it comes to productivity. The internet means that we have access to more knowledge and information than ever before - but it can also be overwhelming. So, Ali and his expert guests focus on simple, scientifically proven, and actionable steps you can take to make real changes in your life.

Ali’s a firm believer that happiness isn’t the result of success - in fact, happiness is the key to success in the first place. Ali made this discovery while working as a doctor in a chaotic hospital ward. In the past, hard work had been the answer to every obstacle in his life. But no amount of hard work was going to combat panic and burnout.

So, Ali dedicated himself to figuring out a new approach to productivity - one that focuses on enjoying the journey and working towards truly meaningful goals. Deep Dive, with its authentic and engaging conversations, will give you all the insights you need to do just that.
