Scientists: Does sleep help you, or hold you back?
I've read many recent articles claiming that "successful" writers, leaders, and inventors sleep less than the rest of us. I recently switched jobs, and that change - along with some biometric monitoring over the last month - has finally answered nagging questions about my sleep habits. But before I spill the beans, I'd like to pose three questions to you, dear readers:
1. How much do you sleep each night?
2. What time do you start work?
3. Are you productive?
Leave the answers in the comments.
Please be as accurate and honest as you can.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
