63: Sam Harris - The Lost Art of Listening to Yourself

August 11th, 2019

Sam explains the lost art of listening to ourselves and the damage it is causing us.

In our modern on demand economy we rush from one thing to the next. We optimise all our moments for learning and listening to things in between. With all of this going on we have lost the art of actually being unplugged and just listening to our mind. We constantly feel a need to distract it.

There have been huge movements towards meditation and things like the 5 minute journal that make us think about our lives and appreciate what we should be grateful for. But this still requires a framework to tell our brain it’s doing something rather than letting it just do things by itself.

Sam explains how this creeps into our lives and how to find moments for yourself for ideas and solving your own problems.
