Today, we sit down with Professor Paulo De Souza Jnr, an internationally recognised scientist who has recently discovered ultra running. This conversation is about being the absolute best that you can be, while at the same time not beating yourself up if you fail along the way. Itā€™s about making mistakes but ensuring that you learn from them. Importantly, itā€™s also a conversation on what drives you. Paulo has a very strong sense of self and this conversation will find you questioning and contemplating what drives you.

Ā  ā€œCuriosity is the basis of everything I do but I transformed that, I think I changed that, and I give purpose to that. What drives me is purposeā€ Ā
