Sue Baker's view...

A look back to traditional values, of living a fulfilled life and not falling prey to the rat-race, our current way of living and working is counter-productive, not using us at our best, setting up barriers for women or anyone who has children or family members to care for. Using the latest research, Arianna Huffington makes a plea for a redefinition of the core concepts behind our work/life balance.

Thrive The Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating a Happier Life by Arianna Huffington

In Thrive, Arianna Huffington, the co-founder and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post and one of the most influential women in the world, has written a passionate call to arms, looking to redefine what it means to be successful in today's world. She likens our drive for money and power to two legs of a three-legged stool. It 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 - in order to live a healthy, productive, and meaningful life. In this deeply personal book, Arianna talks candidly about her own challenges with managing time and prioritising the demands of a career and two daughters. 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 workplaces, and our lives.
