§ Productivity

Sleep is very important for productivity. More sleep = more energy = more creativity.

Good sleep benefits:

Sleep deprivation:

Do you see your job as a mechanical or a creative one?

You’re in marathon, not a sprint—think about sustainability

The culture is pretty much against good sleep, too. Working while sleep deprived is praised, while getting enough sleep is seen as luxury and laziness. (That’s kinda funny because we don’t praise drunk workers but do praise heavily sleep-deprived ones.)

Ideas from Sleeping well by Nate Soares:

Polyphasic sleep is likely a fraud. There is little evidence it has worked for anybody. Don’t waste your time. (Biphasic sleep is a good thing, though. And there is an evidence (?) it is the preferred sleep schedule for humans.)
