Huffington says that while we tend to think of success and two metrics — Money and Power — we need to add a third.
‘To live the lives we truly want and deserve, and not just the lives we settle for, we need a Third Metric,’ she says, ‘The third measure of success that goes beyond the two metrics of money and power, and consists of four pillars: well-being, wisdom, wonder, and giving.’
