I’m currently reading Thrive:The Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating a Life of Well-being, Wisdom, and Wonder by Arianna Huffington.
Here’s one of the paragraphs that has really stopped me in my tracks and made me ponder.
One reaason we give for allowing stress to build in our lives is that we don’t have time to take care of ourselves. We’re too busy chasing a phantom of the successful life (my emphasis- not the author’s). The difference between what success looks like and what truly makes us thrive isn’t always clear as we’re living our lives. But it becomes much more obvious in the rear-view mirror. Have you noticed that when we die, our eulogies celebrate our lives very differently from the way society defines success? (pg.15)
Just wanted to stop and share this .. even thought I’m way off track of showcasing an admin a month.. 🙂 Oh, well.
