Leadership Tips: Decide What is Important

Leadership Tips: Decide What is Important

Arianna Huffington’s book Thrive: The Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating a Life of Well-Being, Wisdom, and Wonder, makes a compelling case to redefine what success means in today’s world. The book gave me some tips and tricks to personally redefine success for myself.

Success means different things for different people. And at the end of the day, we only have so many hours to focus on what we think is important.

One of my favorite quotes that Huffington included in Thrive is:

"And every day, the world will drag you by the hand, yelling, 'This is important! And this is important! And this is important! You need to worry about this! And this! And this!'

"And each day, it's up to you to yank your hand back, put it on your heart and say, "No. This is what's important.'"

Iain Thomas
