- Spotify founder and CEO Daniel Ek admitted to feeling not good enough every day despite his success.
- He told Norges Bank Investment Management’s podcast “In Good Company” he often feels “inadequate.”
Daniel Ek is a billionaire and CEO of one of the world’s best-known companies — but says he still feels “inadequate every day.”
The Spotify chief made the comment on Norges Bank Investment Management’s podcast “In Good Company” last month.
When the music streaming giant’s founder is asked if he’s happy, Ek responds: “I still feel inadequate every day and still feel like shit when I’ve screwed up something — even how I formulate something like two minutes ago, ‘ah I should’ve done a better job’.”
He adds: “That’s constantly how I think about things. I constantly see problems as much as I see opportunities in front of us, and I feel impatient that I should do that.”
