Did this for 6 months some time ago. It seems ok at first. You're regimented, sharp (once the first week is gone). I was down to 24 minute naps, and a reboot every 30 days. Diet was clean, tea only when waking, no alcohol etc. Running 5-10kms every day.
Despite all the exercise and a very clean diet, I still gained weight. I also found I was not retaining the understanding of a topic/issue while learning or problem solving. I'd recommend it for short bursts to get projects out the way or something, and you'd need a week lead. Other than that, feeling good and well rested is just something that can't be beat.
awesome and very witty idea about make productive lifestyle. by hacking your sleeping pattern. i loved it the idea.and i will definitely implement in my scheduled box life. Thank you for sharing..
This sounds insane! Travis: my english is not the best. But maybe you mentioned that this sleeping concept isn't working in a relationship?
It works in mine. But some people have reported that it can get in the way yes. I go to bed at 9pm. A lot of people like to be social at that time.
150% increase? Woah, this looks pretty scientific.
I arrived at that number by looking at my free creative time per day (about 2 hours) and compared that to my new found time (about 6 hours).
