A few years ago I was a broke, university dropout, living in one of the worst parts of the country, alone, with nothing but a laptop & a dream. Fast forward a few years, I’m the 27 year old CEO of one of the UK’s fastest growing companies. That company is called Social Chain. My world is intense, sometimes crazy, always challenging and always unpredictable. This podcast is simple, every week I’m going to share my personal diary with you and I want to give you an insight into what it’s like behind the scenes, being an entrepreneur, the deep, dark thoughts that nobody else will share with you and anything else that’s playing on my mind. This is not scripted, this is off the top of my head and this is direct from my diary. This is the diary of a CEO, I’m Steven Bartlett. I hope nobody is listening, but if you are… keep this to yourself.

    Moment 1: Johann Hari On Why We're Becoming Less Happy And More Lonely

    Moment 1: Johann Hari On Why We're Becoming Less Happy And More Lonely

    In these ‘Moment’ episodes I will be selecting my favourite sections from previous episodes of The Diary Of A CEO. 

    In this episode Journalist and Author Johann Hari, most well known for writing the New York Times bestselling book ‘Lost Connections’, explains why as humans we are becoming less happy and more lonely.

    As a species, we are becoming more and more disconnected, and Johann mainly puts this down to the fact that we are being driven by ‘junk’ values. Like junk food, our ‘junk’ values seem to be attractive to us, but really only go on to harm both us and our happiness.

    Johann explains that only once we begin to understand our intrinsic and extrinsic motivations will we finally be free to live a more connected and happier life.Full episode - https://g2ul0.app.link/or4oJ5MOrfb Johann:https://www.instagram.com/johann.hari/ https://twitter.com/johannhari101
