—Businessweek

“Once in a generation, a book comes along that can truly transform your life. This is it.

Présentation de l'éditeur

In Thrive, Arianna Huffington makes an impassioned and compelling case for the need to redefine what it means to be successful in today's world.
 
Arianna Huffington's personal wake-up call came in the form of a broken cheekbone and a nasty gash over her eye -- the result of a fall brought on by exhaustion and lack of sleep. As the cofounder and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post Media Group -- one of the fastest growing media companies in the world -- celebrated as one of the world's most influential women, and gracing the covers of magazines, she was, by any traditional measure, extraordinarily successful. Yet as she found herself going from brain MRI to CAT scan to echocardiogram, to find out if there was any underlying medical problem beyond exhaustion, she wondered is this really what success feels like?
 
As more and more people are coming to realize, there is far more to living a truly successful life than just earning a bigger salary and capturing a corner office. 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 being connected to the world 24/7, we're losing our connection to what truly matters. Our current definition of success is, as Thrive shows, literally killing us. We need a new way forward.
 
In a commencement address Arianna 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're going to topple over. We need a third leg -- a third metric for defining success -- to truly thrive. That third metric, she writes in Thrive, 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. As Arianna points out, our eulogies celebrate our lives very differently from the way society defines success. They don't commemorate our long hours in the office, our promotions, or our sterling PowerPoint presentations as we relentlessly raced to climb up the career ladder. They are not about our resumes -- they are about cherished memories, shared adventures, small kindnesses and acts of generosity, lifelong passions, and the things that made us laugh.
 
In this deeply personal book, Arianna talks candidly about her own challenges with managing time and prioritizing the demands of a career and raising two daughters -- of juggling business deadlines and family crises, a harried dance that led to her collapse and to her "aha moment." 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, Arianna shows us the way to a revolution in our culture, our thinking, our workplace, and our lives.

IS THE THIRD METRIC THE WAY FORWARD? 20 mars 2014
Par the GreatReads! - Publié sur Amazon.com
Thrive: The Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating a Life of Well-Being, Wisdom, and Wonder by Arianna Huffington is a truly inspiring and refreshing book everyone should read. The deluge of books for reviews almost prevented me from having a look. I am glad I managed to squeeze in time to discover what this book is all about.

In the book, Huffington spells out how one can live a great and healthy life. Her insightful advice coupled with her wonderful writing style makes the book really enjoyable. Her sage and sane advice about getting enough sleep, meditations and shifting one's core values beyond the control of money and power is truly life-changing and thought-provoking. This, in essence, is "the third metric." It is an attempt to redefine success and create a vibrant life full of wisdom and wonder.

One important aspect of the book is its advice to unplug from technology and social media. In a world hooked to the social media such advice may seem ill-conceived but from Huffington's perspective it is badly needed. Though the book has its own shortcomings, I honestly believe that many readers will take some of the advice to heart and be inspired to redefine success, create a life of well-being, wisdom and wonder the Arianna Huffington-way.

Common Sense is Not Always Common Practice 25 mars 2014
Par Brendon Burchard - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This is a brilliant book full of practical wisdom for dramatically improving your life. So many of the facts and stories shared here remind you of things that just got away from you in all the stress and time famine we deal with today: you forgot to be intentional, to sleep, to linger in the moments that matter with full presence, to be more understanding and empathetic and giving with others, to have a full life of fun and wonder outside of your inbox, to say "no" so that you don't drive your life into the ground. These might sound like common sense takeaways, but we all know that common sense is not always common practice. Sanity on the path to success, it turns out, is a choice. With all its tips on mindfulness, self-control, productivity, forgiveness, and giving, this book is a great roadmap for that journey.

I expected less storytelling 28 avril 2014
Par Tough Lady - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I am not through reading the book. I ordered the book before it hit the market after watching her being interviewed about the book. I had to put the book down because it was too much storytelling for me. I wish it was more concise. I admire Ms. Huffington and she is very honest in the book. I do believe that we need to redefine how we measure success. I retired from a fortune 500 company after 30 years, putting in the long hours and unused weeks of vacation.The $$'s and benefits were great, but once you're gone, you realize that all that stress and time spent for the sake of a company's bottom line, is not the best way to live. A good career is admirable but our personal and family life deserve the best of us.

I just can't do it 16 juin 2014
Par AngelaT - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I really wanted to finish the book since I paid for it but I just could not do it. Half way through it and basically it's the same one paragraph rewritten 5,000 different ways. Each paragraph restates what the paragraph before that said... and the one before that.... and....you get the idea. Good grief! It was horrible.

Let's all eat cake. Other books teaching us how to enjoy life are so much better than this one. 3 mai 2014
Par Wallaby - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I will save you $15 by giving you a Cliff's notes synopsis of this book. A friend previewed this book for a possible selection for our book group, in the non-fiction category. She thought it was awful and I agreed.
Huffington fell and hit her head, and in a moment of clarity she decided to make her life more meaningful, write a book and make more money. She suggests:

1. Don't work so hard! Money is not all that important. (Although I do not see AH giving away all her money now that she has found peace ) This only applies to millionaires who do not suffer when their income drops from six million to only five or so. She does not have any practical tips for all of us out here who work way too hard just to make expenses. And if we take the luxury of working less, we will be out of a job.

2. Don't be so hard on your employees and make them work dreadful overtime. No comment.

3. Learn to meditate and develop natural peace. (Again, this is expensive and it helps to have full time housekeepers )

4. Enjoy the ride, don't stress out , learn to live in the moment, cut out activities that waste your time.

5. Oh, and THE THIRD METRIC! It sounds like AH has found the MEANING OF LIFE ! A gimmick to sell this awful book. This is all it is: When you are just out of college and are working so hard to get ahead, you will think of others as competition. Do not waste this time in your life by working all the time. Enjoy being poor! It is better than realizing later that money does not define success. That is all the THIRD METRIC is.

There are dozens of good books that have the same message with loads more practical tips and actually apply to everyone, not just mega-rich women who will still be mega-rich even though she has decided to slack off and enjoy her life more. One that is much better on practicalities is Dale Carnegie's "Enjoy Your Life and Job." A more philosophical one, and excellent is Frankl's "Man's Search for Meaning".
We are choosing another book for our group.
