Lately, I have been obsessing about simplifying my life, slowing down and being more intentional. My good friend, Shelly Walters, told me about this book and I am so glad. Huffington totally gets it and she is sharing her experiences of running full speed ahead in the rat race and then slowing down and taking a new approach to her life. I can’t put this book down and I feel like I am either dog-earing every page or highlighting a lot of text.
If you feel like your work life or personal life needs an adjustment, I think you will really like this book. It makes me think of Taco Bell’s famous marekting campaign, “Fourth Meal.” Huffington introduces us to the Third Metric of success and it’s powerful stuff.
From Amazon: 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.
From the book:
My heart is at ease knowing that what was meant for me will never miss me, and that what misses me was never meant for me. Imam Al-Shafi’i (18th century Muslim jurist)
