Mindful : June 2014
June 2014 mindful 41 Can you think of one or two kind of big picture things about things you dream of being able to do in the future that would be leverage points for change? One big leverage point is women. We are in the mid- dle of the third women’s revolution. The first was about getting the vote. The second was empowering women in their ca reers. That revolution is unfin- ished but we cannot postpone the third revolution, while we wait for all the doors to open. The third revolution is about women being able to define success in their own terms, not simply accepting the definition we’ve inherited. Right now, after women reach pretty high levels of success in their compa- nies, or their institutions, too many of them drop out because they don’t want to pay the price. Another leverage point is business people. Cor- porate leaders are now coming out of the closet as meditators, and they wa nt to bring these values into the workplace. In the past, they might have been reluctant, because they didn’t want to be branded as flaky. But not so much anymore. A final leverage point is creative people—designers, artists, actors, a nd even tech developers, the future Steve Jobs of the world. The recognition that creativ- ity comes from cultivating inner space is much more widespread. Trapped in our inbox and outbox, we’re operating in the shallows. And a lot of the best, biggest new ideas come from the depths. From leaving space. Outer space may be interesting to explore, but the time has come to explore the vastness of inner space. ● metric to be meaningful. It’s saying that in addition to focusing on your sur vival a nd your capabilities you need to pay attention to your well-being, your sense of wonder, the wisdom in your life and your capacity to give—regardless of your circumsta nces. The pervasiveness of instant technology seems to be causing people to disconnect and block out the world. You make that point convincingly in Thrive. At the same time you’re the leader of a high-volume media organization that relies on digital technologies and pervades people’s lives. How do you square that circle? It’s imperative that the more plugged in we are in our work life, the more we must learn to unplug and recharge. At Huffington Post, we’re working to embrace the third metric in as many ways as possible. No one is expected to answer email after hours. We have meditation, yoga, a nd breathing classes every week. We have healthy food avail- able and make sure people know that taking care of themselves is a priority, and that when they do that they’re not just helping themselves but helping HuffPo as well. It’s not a trade-off. If we embody these values internally, it will show up in the brand. Every ma nager is working to put all these prin- ciples into practice. It’s a major journey, and as part of that we want to reach out to companies across the world, learn what they are doing, and share that information so others can try to replicate it.
