to Redefining Success and Creating a Life of Well-Being, Wisdom, and Wonder Ό Book By Arianna Huffington ‗ Well BeingFor a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to beginreal life But there was always some obstacle in the way Something to be got through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid Then life would begin At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.Fr Alfred DSouzaA New Blueprint Time to Renovate the Architecture of Our LivesNothing succeeds like excess, we are told If a little of something is good, must be better So working eighty hours a week must be better than working forty And being plugged in 24 7 is assumed to be a standard requirement of every job worth having todaywhich means that getting by on less sleep and constant multitasking is an express elevator to the top in todays work world Right The time has come to reexamine these assumptions When we do, it becomes clear that the price we are paying for this way of thinking and living is far too high and unsustainable The architecture of how we live our lives is badly in need of renovation and repair What we really value is out of sync with how we live our lives And the need is urgent for some new blueprints to reconcile the two In Platos Apology, Socrates defines his lifes mission as awakening the Athenians to the supreme importance of attending to their souls His timeless plea that we connect to ourselves remains the only way for any of us to truly thrive.Too many of us leave our livesand, in fact, our soulsbehind when we go to work This is the guiding truth of the Well Being section and, indeed, of this entire book Growing up in Athens, I remember being taught in my classics class that, as Socrates said, the unexamined life is not worth living Philosophy for the Greeks was not an academic exercise It was a way of lifea daily practice in the art of living My mother never went to college, but she would still preside over long sessions in our small kitchen in Athens discussing the principles and teachings of Greek philosophy to help guide my sister, Agapi, and me in our decisions and our choices.Our current notion of success, in which we drive ourselves into the ground, if not the gravein which working to the point of exhaustion and burnout is considered a badge of honorwas put in place by men, in a workplace culture dominated by men But its a model of success thats not working for women, and, really, its not working for men, either If were going to redefine what success means, if we are going to include a Third Metric to success, beyond money and power, its going to be women who will lead the wayand men, freed of the notion that the only road to success includes taking the Heart Attack Highway to Stress City, will gratefully join both at work and at home.This is our third womens revolution The first womens revolution was led by the suffragettes than a hundred years ago, when courageous women such as Susan B Anthony, Emmeline Pankhurst, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton fought to get women the right to vote The second was led by Betty Friedan and Gloria Steinem, who foughtand Gloria continues to fightto expand the role of women in our society and give them full access to the rooms and corridors of power where decisions are made.This second revolution is still very much in progress, as it needs to be But we simply cant wait any longer for the third revolution to get under way.Thats because women are paying an even higher price than men for their participation in a work culture fueled by stress, sleep deprivation, and burnout That is one reason why so many talented women, with impressive degrees working in high powered jobs, end up abandoning their careers when they can afford to Let me count the ways in which these personal costs are unsustainable As mentioned in the introductionbut it is so important it bears repeatingwomen in highly stressful jobs have a nearly 40 percent increased risk of heart disease and heart attacks compared with their less stressed colleagues, and a 60 percent greater risk for type 2 diabetes a link that does not exist for men, by the way Women who have heart attacks are almost twice as likely as men to die within a year of the attack, and women in high stress jobs are likely to become alcoholics than women in low stress jobs Stress and pressure from high powered careers can also be a factor in the resurgence of eating disorders in women ages thirty five to sixty.Most of the time, the discussion about the challenges of women at the top centers around the difficulty of navigating a career and childrenof having it all Its time we recognize that, as the workplace is currently structured, a lot of women dont want to get to the top and stay there because they dont want to pay the pricein terms of their health, their well being, and their happiness When women do leave high powered jobs, the debate is largely taken over by the binary stay at home mom versus the independent career woman question But, in fact, when women at the topor near enoughopt out, its not just because of the kids, even though thats sometimes what takes the place of the job theyve left And the full reasons why theyre leaving also have implications for men.Caroline Turner, author of Difference Works Improving Retention, Productivity, and Profitability Through Inclusion, was one of those women at the top After successfully climbing the corporate ladder, she decided to get off And it wasnt because of her children, who were grown I lacked the passion it took to keep it up, she writes Once she left, she realized she had new colleagues of a sort I began to notice how much company I had as a former successful woman executive, she writes I began to reflect on what really caused me to leave.What she found was research that showed that, yes, child care and elder care were cited most often as the reasons women left But after those, the motivation most often given was lack of engagement or enjoyment in the job And, of course, none of the three reasons are exclusive If a woman doesnt really like her job, she may be less willing or able to juggle work and family responsibilities, Turner writes If she is fully engaged in her work, the juggling act may be worthwhile So what often looks from the outside like a simple choice to quit and take care of the children can actually be complicated Children are a formidable optiontime spent with them can be meaningful and engaging And if the career alternative ceases to be meaningful or engaging, some women who are able to will take the former In fact, 43 percent of women who have children will quit their jobs at some point Around three quarters of them will return to the workforce, but only 40 percent will go back to working full time As Turner writes, for women to be engaged in the workplace, they need to feel valued And the way many workplaces are set up, masculine ways of succeedingfueled by stress and burnoutare often accorded value Take Wall Street, for example, where Roseann Palmieri worked for twenty five years, becoming a managing director at Merrill Lynch Suddenly, in 2010, she came to a realization Im at the table Ive made it Ive networked, Ive clawed, Ive said yes, Ive said no, Ive put in all this time and effort and I was underwhelmed What I was getting back was not acceptable to me.You are not your bank account, or your ambitiousness Youre not the cold clay lump with a big belly you leave behind when you die Youre not your collection of walking personality disorders You are spirit, you are love.Anne LamottLikewise, after getting a masters in education at Harvard and an MBA at Wharton, Paulette Light had a successful career in management consulting Ten weeks after her daughter was born, she was back at work I was an exhausted, nervous wreck, she writes Her company tried to be flexible to keep her, telling her to just get the job done however she could But that was the problem, she writes Getting the job done was all about giving everything to the job.So she quit, and had three children But leaving the business world did not mean leaving behind achievement and accomplishment Far from it In the time since, shes started a preschool, cofounded a synagogue, and launched an Internet start up, momstamp.com, focused on making moms lives easier Shes also been surveying the work landscape for ways in which the doors to the business world could be two way and allow for the talents and skills of those who have chosen alternative paths to be put to use A healthy economy isnt just about the efficient allocation of capital, but of talent, as well As and peopleboth men and womenbegin to choose not to work themselves into the ground, its important that humane pathways back to the workforce be created so their skills are not lost.One idea is to expand the project based worldwhere businesses simply give a skilled worker a project and a deadline If you want high achieving mothers back in the workforce, Light writes, dont give us an office and a work week filled with facetime, give us something to get done and tell us when you need it by.And its not just women with children who are looking for an alternative After graduating from college, Kate Sheehan quickly worked her way up in communications and by twenty seven was a speechwriter for the CEO of a large finance company But seven years of twelve hour days later, she began to have second thoughts about where she was going It wasnt the answers that were changing for her, but the questions Its not, What do I want to do its, What kind of life do I want to have she says Her answer made her realize she had to make some changes.I do not try to dance better than anyone else I only try to dance better than myself.Mikhail BaryshnikovSo she moved to Cape Cod and started a communications consulting business There was something about being on Cape CodI was inspired by the people around me, in this beautiful geography, who were making it work, she says I started to think, I could make a independent path work for me as well I felt inspired by the natural surroundings, by being close to the ocean where I grew up Emotionally, mentally and physically, I had space to create.There are a lot of women doing what Im doing, she says, but theyre doing it 15, 20 years later I dont want to be someone who, 15 years from now, has horrible health problems and who hasnt created a life that feels really meaningful to me According to a ForbesWoman survey, an amazing 84 percent of working women say that staying at home to raise kids is a financial luxury they aspire to This says just as much about the fulfillment were getting from our work as it does about our love of our no doubt adorable children Burnout Our Civilizations DiseaseBelgian philosopher Pascal Chabot calls burnout civilizations disease Its certainly symptomatic of our modern age It is not only an individual disorder that affects some who are ill suited to the system, or too committed, or who dont know how to put limits to their professional lives, he writes It is also a disorder that, like a mirror, reflects some excessive values of our society.Marie Asberg, professor at the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, describes burnout as an exhaustion funnel we slip down as we give up things we dont think are important Often, the very first things we give up are those that nourish us the most but seem optional, write Mark Williams and Danny Penman in Mindfulness An Eight Week Plan for Finding Peace in a Frantic World The result is that we are increasingly left with only work or other stressors that often deplete our resources, and nothing to replenish or nourish usand exhaustion is the result.If I were called upon to state in a few words the essence of everything I was trying to say both as a novelist and as a preacher, it would be something like this Listen to your life See it for the fathomless mystery that it is In the boredom and pain of it, no less than in the excitement and gladness touch, taste, smell your way to the holy and hidden heart of it, because in the last analysis, all moments are key moments, and life itself is grace.Frederick BuechnerAnother result of our current toxic definition of success is an epidemic of addiction More than twenty two million people in the United States are using illegal drugs, than twelve million are using prescription painkillers without a medical reason, and almost nine million need prescription sleep aids to go to sleep And the percentage of adults taking antidepressants has gone up 400 percent since 1988.Burnout, stress, and depression have become worldwide epidemics And as we found out when we held a Third Metric conference in London in the summer of 2013, and then one in Munich in the fall, the need to redefine success is a global need In the United Kingdom, prescriptions for antidepressants have gone up 495 percent since 1991 In Europe, from 1995 to 2009, the use of antidepressants went up by nearly 20 percent per year And the health consequences of stress are increasingly documented around the world According to a Danish study, women who described work related pressures as a little too high faced a 25 percent increased risk of heart disease As June Davison, a nurse at the British Heart Foundation cautioned, Feeling under pressure at work means stressed employees may pick up some unhealthy bad habits and add to their risk of developing heart problems.In Germany, than 40 percent of workers say that their jobs have become stressful in the past two years Germany lost fifty nine million workdays to psychological illness in 2011, up over 80 percent in fifteen years When she was the German Labour Minister, Ursula von der Leyen, now Germanys defense minister, estimated that burnout is costing the country up to ten billion euros per year Nothing is expensive than sending a good worker into retirement in their mid forties because theyre burned out, she said These cases are no longer just the exception Its a trend that we have to do something about.In China, according to a 2012 survey, 75 percent of Chinese workers said their stress levels have risen in the previous year versus a global average of 48 percent.In Thrive, Arianna
