As co-founder and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post Media Group, Arianna Huffington is regarded as one of the most influential and, by any measure, successful women in the world. But after falling due to exhaustion and lack of sleep, she was left with a broken cheekbone, a gash in her forehead, and a wake-up call that her personal stability and success were hanging by a thread.
Our society's pursuit of the typical markers of success – money and power – has led to a widely-felt epidemic of burnout and stress, diminished family and personal relationships, and ultimately, unfulfilling careers. In her new book Thrive, Huffington shows that, alongside money and power, we need a third metric, one that prioritizes well-being, a sense of wonder, and compassion. Only then can we truly embody the definition of a successful life.
Join New America NYC for a conversation with Arianna Huffington about the need to redefine what it means to be successful in today’s rapidly moving and increasingly connected world.
