“We are all living under a collective delusion – that the way to succeed is to simply burnout.” – Arianna Huffington
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, and of juggling business deadlines and family crises, a harried dance that led to her collapse and to her “aha moment.”
In Thrive, Arianna Huffington makes an impassioned and compelling case for the need to redefine what it means to be successful in today’s world. Her personal wake-up call came in the form of a broken cheekbone and a nasty gash over her eye, the result of a fall brought on by exhaustion and lack of sleep. As the cofounder and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post Media Group, celebrated as one of the world’s most influential women, and gracing the covers of magazines, she was extraordinarily successful. Yet as she found herself going from brain MRI to CAT scan to echocardiogram, to find out if there was any underlying medical problem beyond exhaustion, she wondered is this really what success feels like?
