Gayle King, Journalist: Keynote Conversation with Ariana Huffington


Gayle King and Ariana Huffington go behind the scenes of their high profile careers to discuss managing stress, finding balance, and redefining success. In an 24 hour/day connected world, it's become "a badge of honor" to work yourself to exhaustion. In chasing this prize, we've lost an element of human connection, self-awareness, and many hours of sleep.

One of the most effect habits to being more resilient and refreshed, these remarkable ladies reveal, is to stop comparing yourself to other people. At age forty, King made that decision to stop judging herself based on those around her because the habit ultimately proved to be nothing but self-destructive. "I did not try to dance better than anyone else," she reads a quote from Mikhail Baryshnikov. "I only tried to dance better than myself."
