Summary
As co-founder and editor in chief of the Huffington Post Media Group, this is the author's case for the need to redefine what it means to be successful in today's world. Our relentless pursuit of the two traditional metrics of success, money and power, has led to an epidemic of burnout and stress-related illnesses, and an erosion in the quality of our relationships, family life, and, ironically, our careers. In a commencement address she gave at Smith College in the spring of 2013, she likened our drive for money and power to two legs of a three-legged stool. They may hold us up temporarily, but sooner or later we are going to topple over. We need a third leg, a third metric for defining success, to truly thrive. That third metric, she writes, includes our well-being, our ability to draw on our intuition and inner wisdom, our sense of wonder, and our capacity for compassion and giving. Drawing on the latest groundbreaking research and scientific findings in the fields of psychology, sports, sleep, and physiology that show the profound and transformative effects of meditation, mindfulness, unplugging, and giving, she shows us the way to a revolution in our culture, our thinking, our workplace, and our lives. -- From book jacket
Summary
Looks beyond power and money, the traditionally accepted measures of success, to elaborate on the importance of a third metric--the nurturing of well-being, wisdom, and compassion to create a healthy work-life balance
