4 Ways to Renew and Become a Better Employee from Arianna Huffington

by , Marketing Communications Specialist

Arianna Huffington recently spoke at Hubspot's Inbound 2013 Conference I attended last week. During her keynote she shared how redefining the way we think about sleep can transform our lives—I think this is a message all professionals should hear.

Escaping Our Culture of Burnout

We all experience burnout in one way or another. Our culture encourages little time for rejuvenation. Instead, we work in a culture of tight timelines and critical deadlines.  We spend our nights writing emails instead of resting. All this work and no rest really only leads to one result—burnout. We need to learn to give ourselves permission to rest, to make space, and to "lean back so we can jump forward."

Right now, in our society, success is defined by two metrics: money & power.  In her keynote, Arianna Huffington redefined success as:

  • Well-being

  • Wisdom

  • Capacity to celebrate life

  • Our ability to give back

So what is the solution? How do we get to this place of redefined success? Here are four suggestions from the keynote:

1. Learn to be a gazelle.

We all need to learn to graze.
