Event Description

LocalLEVO Seattle 2015 Book Club // Book Three

In Thrive, Arianna Huffington makes an impassioned and compelling case for the need to redefine what it means to be successful in today's world. As more and more people are coming to realize, there is far more to living a truly successful life than just earning a bigger salary and capturing a corner office. Our relentless pursuit of the two traditional metrics of success -- money and power -- has led to an epidemic of burnout and stress-related illnesses, and an erosion in the quality of our relationships, family life, and, ironically, our careers. In being connected to the world 24/7, we're losing our connection to what truly matters. Our current definition of success is, as Thrive shows, literally killing us. We need a new way forward.

In this deeply personal book, Arianna talks candidly about her own challenges with managing time and prioritizing the demands of a career and raising two daughters -- of juggling business deadlines and family crises, a harried dance that led to her collapse and to her "aha moment." Drawing on the latest groundbreaking research and scientific findings in the fields of psychology, sports, sleep, and physiology that show the profound and transformative effects of meditation, mindfulness, unplugging, and giving, Arianna shows us the way to a revolution in our culture, our thinking, our workplace, and our lives.

Book Club Structure
We will take 2 months per book, so we can end before the November/December holiday season. We will take one week off between books, just to allow for a break to those who would like it. By no means do you need to adhere to a reading schedule, we are simply providing a mid-book check in point... so if you've read past that halfway point no spoilers when we meet up!

As with any good club, there are a few rules:
1st rule of book club: You do NOT have to read every book to participate! I totally understand if a book doesn't resonate with you so this is not a "you MUST read all books and attend all meetings" sort of book club.
2nd rule of book cub: If you decide to participate and read the book, we suggest committing to attending at least one of the meetings to discuss. You have valuable perspective and things you will learn that the group would love to hear!
3rd rule of book club: We are not going to be a book club that ONLY reads wine labels. While delicious libations might be a part of meetings, we are focused on reading and learning from these fantastic authors and I promise to be a dedicated moderator with discussion questions prepared and I vow to both keep up on track discussing the book and allow us to go on tangents when we get passionate about topics in the book(s).
