Hey, you. Yeah, you—the one reading this. The one that says ignorant things like “I’ll sleep when I’m dead,” “I’m busier than you,” or “I only require 3-4 hours of sleep.”
This research by Harvard obviously doesn’t apply to you because you’re the exception. You’re super human. For the rest of us, however, the study is a helpful reminder that those who sleep eight hours a night — or a third of their life — enjoy better health and performance than those who don’t. The former don’t fumble around like drunks everyday. Since quitting the rat race four years ago, I can independently verify the study’s results.
But again, you’re different. This advice doesn’t apply to you. Don’t let science get in the way of your superior, busy, and more important life.
We’ll just be over here. Well-rested and fully operational. But again, not as important as you. Carry on.
