In a podcast episode of Diary of A CEO, he recalled the horrific accident he was involved in in 2006. He clearly regretted it because he was driving at 320 km/h when his car crashed sending him into a coma. It took a long time to recover from that intense accident. He also remembers that he suffered post-traumatic amnesia for weeks after the accident. He would spend the entire day reading the newspaper again and again as he had “one minute memory”. This was a horrendous side-effect of the crash. Thankfully, he is doing fine now.
