This is one thing I absolutely refuse to let work get in the way of. I cannot stress the importance of at least getting 8 hours of sleep per night.

I see way too many β€˜hustlers’ bragging about how they don’t sleep much. I make it a point to get atleast 6 hours of solid sleep. Every single time I miss out on this, my day is shit.Β

Averaging 6-7 hours at the moment. Anything lower and I find I struggle

Inadequate sleep is the killer of all deals, second only to time

I will wake up early and finish up work instead of pulling an all nighter. I started doing that in college 10 years ago, and it worked.Β 

Your brain needs time to process memory and rest. Not sleeping will slow you down.Β

It varies largely on the school year; end up getting less (4-5) during the academic year than during the summer (6-7).Β

I realized in college that if I didn't get some solid shut eye I was gonna be a wreck the next day. Better to feel good at be at your best than squeeze in a little something extra

Something that bothers me about sales is the wiring most of us have that makes stepping away from work difficult. And the way people brag about overworking. I check my email sun up to sun down and often work on the couch in the evening, so the least I can do is let myself get a decent night's rest.

I'm a complete nightmare to deal with if I don't get at least 8 hours of sleep! That's a non-negotiable for me.
