It Is Time to Change the Discussion From Succeeding to Thriving

Linda C. Smith | Posted 09.04.2014 | Healthy Living
Linda C. Smith

My definition of "thriving" is to live in a state of joy regardless of outward appearances and circumstances. To choose "joy" as the default. By having joy at the center of your being means that happiness are not predicated on the accumulation of wealth or power.

It's Time to Talk: Ending Burnout in Movements for Social Change

It's like trying to run a marathon on no sleep and a twisted ankle, and continuing to do things this way is keeping us from winning victories. We are facing a crisis of planetary proportions. We have got to do better than this.

Burnout: Time to Abandon a Very Costly Collective Delusion

Arianna Huffington | Posted 06.06.2014 | Business
Arianna Huffington

As I've been out on the road talking about Thrive, one question has been coming up again and again, which is some variation of, "hey, it's OK for you to say 'you don't need to burnout' now that you're already successful, but what about those of us just starting out who want to succeed?" It's a good question -- and it seems like a logical one. But its premise is actually flawed in a number of ways. It is based on the dangerous assumption that overwork and burnout are the only path to professional success. A growing number of scientific studies confirm the profound negative effects of burnout and sleep deprivation on every aspect of our health and performance. Our deluded corporate culture may still congratulate employees for working 24/7, but good ideas are much more valuable to a successful business than exhausted employees. They are the lightning in a bottle everyone is trying to capture.

Thrive and the $26 Philanthropist

Charles Best | Posted 04.22.2014 | Impact
Charles Best

Fourteen years ago, I began teaching history at a public high school in the Bronx. My students and colleagues were awesome, but I could see that the school where I was teaching did not have the same resources as the schools I'd attended. My colleagues and I spent a lot of our own money on copy paper and pencils, but we often couldn't afford the resources that would get our students excited about learning. We'd talk in the teachers' lunchroom about books our students should read, a field trip we wanted to take, or a microscope that would bring science to life. "Crowdfunding" wasn't yet a word, but I figured there were people out there who'd love to help -- if they could see where their money was going. Fourteen years later, more than a million donors have supported projects reaching 10 million students in low-income communities, demonstrating that micro philanthropists can have a macro impact.

The bottom line is to give yourself the holiday experience that is just right for you. Do what is meaningful to you and be with people who appreciate you. Some might view this as self-indulgent, but I see it as taking responsibility for warming the cockles of your own sweet heart.
