both are well performed.  The poem reminds me too much of my H.S. and Jr. H.S. teaching days.  Not bad, just not impressed with the poem.  Then there is the P-funk, like going to church.

Let's Stop the Glorification of Busy

"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." via +Arianna Huffington 

Reading Arianna Huffington's new book Thrive: The Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating a Life of Well-being, Wisdom, and Wonder made me think about how we glorify being busy and the toll that this path takes on our lives.

Our two main metrics for success are money and power, and they drive us to work longer hours, sleep with our phones and tablets, miss important moments with our families, and impacts our health. Arianna proposes a third metric for success: thriving. When you thrive, you take care of your health, get enough sleep, and do not live to work.

Here are ten tips from Arianna and Thrive for creating a life of well-being, wisdom, and wonder:

1. Redefine success.
There's no prize for working the most hours per week or making the most money. At the end of our lives, we're all about the same amount of dust, so the question is how much joy you've brought into people's lives and how much have you made the world a better place.

2. Avoid burnout.
 Burnout, stress, and depression are worldwide problems. At Arianna's Third Metric conference in 2013, she learned that burnout is not only affecting Americans but also workers in Germany, the United Kingdom, China, and the rest of the world. Working harder doesn't necessarily mean better results--in fact it can have the exact opposite effect.

3. Nurture your well-being.
 Make time to take care of yourself in terms of exercise, meditation, music, art, and family life--this isn't selfishness, it's good sense. My escape valve is hockey. I play hockey four to five times a week. I also ride a stationary bike and do some yoga four times a week. And I'm not sure all this is enough!

If you liked this, please share so more people can thrive and find a new measure of success.

Introduction
I'm an old poet, developer and entrepreneur living in Ventura, CA. Currently I'm working on a start up for hair stylists.  An application called ColorClient.  I don't write much anymore, but the poet still lurks somewhere down within.  I can feel him.
