Redefining What it Means to be Successful

By Pam Nochlin

Barbara Walters interviewed Arianna Huffington, of the Huffington Post, about many things including; redefining what it means to be successful, the value of sleep and her new book, (appropriately named!), Thrive: The Third Metric To Redefining Success and Creating A Life Of Well-Being, Wisdom and Wonder.

Some take aways:

• There is a stress epidemic and burnout is a chronic issue

• We’ve become too tired to enjoy the good moments

• We need time to reflect, to sleep without disruption and to unplug

• You’re missing out if you think life if only about money and power

• Having success doesn’t mean your successful

• Life is shaped from the inside out

• We spend too much time polishing our resume

• We need to change corporate language and stop praising people who work 24/7

• We don’t pay people for stamina we pay them for their judgment and creativity

• Don’t follow anyone else’s path unless you're in the forest and you're lost

• Happiness is a skill you can learn through compassion and giving

• What Arianna knows for sure: who you are on the inside, is much greater than who you present to the world
