Most people know what it’s like to be up 4 hours and 2 cups of coffee after 12 AM—burning the midnight oil because “sleep is for the weak”.
Some of us are night owls who believe we’re nocturnal by nature, that we reach our peak levels of productivity at those hours when no one else is awake.
Others just have trouble sleeping at night, so they choose to do something more valuable with their time than stare up at a ceiling—whether it’s working on a side hustle or catching up on TV shows.
And then there are those of us who just procrastinated for too long and have to suffer the consequences.
For whatever reason, sacrificing sleep is usually seen as a badge of honor to be worn with pride. And therein lies the problem.
