ISSUE – Mar. 05 | After an “identity crisis,” Social Capital CEO Chamath Palihapitiya says he’s taught himself how to be happy again

After a speech at Stanford University in late 2017, Chamath Palihapitiya says he realized that something in his life needed to change. “In Italian, there’s a beautiful word, basta, which is basically like your way of saying, ‘Enough!’” the Social Capital CEO said on the latest episode of Recode Decode. “And so I woke up one day and I was like, ‘Basta!’ Enough.”

And over the next year, Palihapitiya’s declaration that he had had “enough” would ricochet around Silicon Valley, as his well-regarded, traditional venture capital firm lost several of its most prominent partners, angered its investors, and scaled back several of its most ambitious plans. [ Re/Code ]
