Welcome to the What's Next! podcast with Tiffani Bova.
I’m honored to have Arianna Huffington as this week’s guest. Arianna is an author, mother, and businesswoman, most notably known as the co-founder and former Editor-in-Chief of The Huffington Post. Most recently, Arianna has written Thrive and The Sleep Revolution. But what you may not know about Arianna is that she has a Master's Degree in Economics from Cambridge and was a candidate for California governor. She's been named one of the Most Influential Women in Media and one of the Most Powerful Women in Business.
THIS EPISODE IS PERFECT FOR… those hesitant about the future.
TODAY’S MAIN MESSAGE… We’re at a very interesting time in history – one that is currently being shaped in new ways every day. The next 20 years won’t look anything like today. But of course, 20 years ago doesn’t look anything like today either.
We cannot predict what the future holds, but as Arianna says, we’re at an inflection point. Careers are no longer linear. Passion and purpose have stronger meanings than ever before, and change is happening faster than humans can keep up.
Arianna is concerned about our addiction to devices because data shows it makes us less empathetic. More and more people are ditching devices for real connection, which means putting phones away for dinners and seeing friends in person instead of over a video call. Arianna calls this “thrive mode.”
WHAT I LOVE MOST… As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized that giving back and reflecting on my life is more important than I ever thought. In a tech-consumed world, Arianna warns that we need balance. The interconnectedness we appear to have doesn’t hold weight compared to investing in relationships. Giving back and providing value is what gives us a full life.
IF YOU WANT TO CHANGE YOUR BEHAVIOR… find your Thrive Tribe. Find the people who support you and want to see you grow but also know how important real relationships are. They’ll keep you accountable.
