    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.

    BONUS EPISODE: The Ultimate Productivity Booster (Chapter 9 Feel-Good Productivity)

    BONUS EPISODE: The Ultimate Productivity Booster (Chapter 9 Feel-Good Productivity)

    This is an exclusive excerpt from my New York Times bestselling book, Feel-Good Productivity! This final excerpt from chapter 9 of the book is about how doing what matters to you is the ultimate energiser and productivity booster and how you can find what matters to you.

    I explore the science of motivation, and how in addition to intrinsic motivation, there are 3 forms of extrinsic motivation that move us. 

    It’s widely known that when we’re intrinsically motivated to do something we’re more effective and energised in doing it, and extrinsic rewards can make us less motivated to do something for its own sake. Well, that has been proven to not be exactly the case.

    BONUS EPISODE: Recharge Your Batteries With Feel-Good Tasks (Chapter 8 Feel-Good Productivity)

    This is an exclusive excerpt from my New York Times bestselling book, Feel-Good Productivity! Chapter 8 of the book is about recharging the proverbial batteries: how to rest in a way that energises you.


    I explore the ways we might think we're "resting" like doom-scrolling or binge-watching TV, and how these activities are actually draining our feel-good emotions.

    I also tell you how to recharge by engaging in activities that make us feel good, and the 4 ways that creative tasks unlock our energy.


    We'll be releasing more of these chapters week by week, so stay tuned and enjoy :)

    High Performance Psychologist: The Secret To Happiness Is Vulnerability

    High Performance Psychologist: The Secret To Happiness Is Vulnerability

    We’ve all experienced moments when we want to express vulnerability, but our mind holds us back. I often find myself in this situation, and in this candid conversation with Dr. Aria, I delve into my inner thoughts on the matter. Dr Aria is a high-performance psychologist and mindfulness specialist who developed a science-based method called Focused Insight Training to help people stay mentally and physically fit for life. Enjoy!

    BONUS EPISODE: Are You Burned Out? Listen To This. (Chapter 7 Feel-Good Productivity)

    BONUS EPISODE: Are You Burned Out? Listen To This. (Chapter 7 Feel-Good Productivity)

    This is an exclusive excerpt from my New York Times bestselling book, Feel-Good Productivity! Chapter 7 of the book explores the various kinds of burnout that we may suffer and offers a glimpse of the solution.


    I analysed how LeBron James has dominated the NBA and sustained his position during a multi-decade career, and how Steve Jobs managed to be innovative by saying “no to innovations”. 


    I realised that being sustainably productive means doing less today so that we can do more of what matters tomorrow.


    We'll be releasing more of these chapters week by week, so stay tuned and enjoy :)
