I just read ANOTHER post on LinkedIn bragging about hustle and lack of sleep. This particular person was jazzed because they survive on a routine of 5.5 hours sleep per day!
I can get by on 7 hours, 8 is ideal, and I celebrate the weekend 9 hour snooze! Some of my best thinking happens in my sleep, as well as on walks and in the shower. The subconscious mind has an amazing way of working things out, and it must be given proper time to do its job.
I work hard and really love my job. But I don’t understand the “hustle culture” promoted online and in our industry. It’s a really outdated viewpoint that stifles creativity and productivity. Let’s all get some rest and do great things!
