Sleep happens! Especially on Mondays… I recently read that 35% of all respondents to a recent polls admitted to napping on the job. If I would have taken the poll, what do you think I would have said?
Of course I have! And the other 65% have too, but they won’t admit it. I’m not sawing logs all day long, but yes, it happens.
The MSN article below claims we’re sleeping about 2-3 hours less than those before the invention of the electric light bulb. Duhh. That’s no surprise. Every invention has its unintended consequences.
I really feel this has an effect on our projects. I remember burning the midnight oil during the dot com, while attempting to start a new software company. I literally worked two back-to-back 8-hour days. And fought to stay awake every day.
Most people don’t go to that extreme, but they do watch their shows, surf the web, and play video games late into the night. All because of the humble electric lightbulb. 🙂
