For most of my life, I have struggled with getting enough sleep. When I tell people how little I sleep, they are complimentary. They generally see that it is the reason I am able to be a CEO and still read so many books. I consider myself a high-functioning insomniac because most people are not able to tell when I am tired.
So all good, right?
Not so fast.
I would gladly give all of that up for solid sleep, every single night. Getting little sleep is not a badge of honor. It is not something to brag about.
Not getting enough sleep can range from an occasional annoyance to a serious issue requiring medical help. Sleep better and you increase your productivity, your odds of success, and your ability to lead.
