While reading THRIVE: The Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating a Life of Well-Being, Wisdom, and Wonder by Arianna Huffington I realized that in addition to her main message that we all would do better to get more sleep, Arianna had come up a series of “takeaways” about how we can start to improve our lives through tiny, daily changes. I highlighted them in my Kindle but then realized that I needed a better way to think about and be reminded of these daily new habits. Thus this infographic. It’s just the tip of the “third metric” iceberg—there’s so much more interesting stuff in the book about success, health, and happiness—but a good start for now.

Basically it boils down to “how do you define success and create joy in life and at work?” This is a wide-ranging (from the ancient Greeks to Sheryl Sandberg) but personal book where Arianna shares anecdotes and life lessons from many, many famous names— but most often from her down-to-earth, irrepressible mother, Elli.
