The Third Metric

I bloomin’ love Arianna Huffington’s new initiative called The Third Metric. It’s all about redefining succes. She is not a fan of the fact that ‘success’ currently is equated with burnout, exhaustion, and sleep-deprivation; it’s just not that fun.

“In one year, prescriptions for antidepressants have gone up by over 9 percent,” she said. “A third of people say they can’t sleep. Sleeping pill prescriptions are skyrocketing. Clearly there is something wrong.”

Learn more about it here. I’m up for joining the troops in redefining success.
