How to Fail with Elizabeth Day - Gloria Steinem

This week I have been loving listening to How to Fail with Elizabeth Day.  Elizabeth Day interviews some really interesting people, who share their mistakes and challenges in life and how it has helped them become stronger.  I particularly love these interviews as they really do show that even the people we think have life all together, really don't, and that's okay x

How to Fail with Elizabeth Day - Mo Gawdat 

How to Fail with Elizabeth Day is one of my go to podcasts to listen to when I'm painting. There are so many great episodes it is hard to choose one to recommend, but one that stands out for me is Elizabeth Day's interview with Mo Gawdat.  Gawdat is the former chief business officer at Google X (Google's so-called 'moonshot factory' responsible for off-the-wall ideas such as self-driving cars and a balloon-powered internet) but for a long time in his life, despite having professional, personal and material success, he realised he wasn't happy. So he set about solving this problem by applying his scientific research skills to the issue: how can one individual be happy?

Gawdat talks about how that algorithm was put to the ultimate test when his beloved 21-year-old son Ali died in tragic circumstances. We talk about how to survive depression and grief; how happiness is like fitness.
