The Huffington Post recently sponsored a conference called The Third Metric. They are looking beyond money and power to find a different way of measuring and valuing life. Here is the About statement from the Third Metric home page:

The current, male-dominated model of success — which equates success with burnout, sleep deprivation, and driving ourselves into the ground — isn’t working for women, and it’s not working for men, either. On June 6, Arianna Huffington and Mika Brzezinski hosted a conference called “The Third Metric: Redefining Success Beyond Money & Power,” bringing together women — and a few good men — to focus on redefining success to include well-being, wisdom, our ability to wonder and our ability to make a difference in the world. On this page, HuffPost will host an ongoing conversation about The Third Metric and how we can chart a course to a new, more humane, more sustainable definition of success — for women and for men.

The section is full of articles on people’s practices and experiences for living happier, more meaningful lives. The Third Metric is positioned primarily to women readers. That should not stop men from reading these pieces, both for the content as well as the perspective.
