Burnout: The Disease of Our Civilization

Arianna Huffington | Posted 08.21.2013 | Business

Since launching our Third Metric campaign -- to redefine success beyond money and power to include well-being, wisdom, our ability to wonder and to give back -- I've been seeing things through a Third Metric lens. And what I see is a split-screen world. On one side, we have endless examples of how the business world still hasn't changed and continues to glorify an approach to measuring success that leads to burnout. On the other side of the screen, there are more and more examples from companies large and small of prioritizing well-being. One of the primary things keeping many businesses from adopting more sustainable metrics of success is the stubborn -- and dangerously wrongheaded -- myth that prioritizing health and well-being is incompatible with a healthy bottom line; and that there is a trade-off between high performance and taking care of ourselves. As countless studies show, this couldn't be less true.
