Productivity and Success Increase with More Sleep

Have you ever tried to burn the candle at both ends in order to get more done? Guess what? It doesn’t really work. You might think you’re getting more productive, but often you wind up getting less done. It’s funny how that works. Being tired all the time is a guarantee that you’ll make more errors as well.

Last Sunday I did something I don’t do often enough. I stayed in bed and slept until 8:00am. That’s not my norm. I’m an early riser, getting up most days between 5:00 and 5:30. I get a lot done in those early morning hours before work. But getting up early comes with another problem. I still often don’t get to bed until 11:00pm. I wind up only getting 6 hours of sleep. That’s not best for my health or my productivity.
