Entrepreneur suggests some everyday applications to Orfeu M. Buxton and team’s recent study on how work hours impact workers’ sleep.
“It used to be that if you slept, you were considered weak and unambitious,” says Buxton. “Only the sleep deprived, or those who were willing to subject themselves to extremes of sleep loss and claimed tireless efforts [were celebrated].”
How many times have you seen someone lauded for their “tireless efforts?” “I don’t want that,” says Buxton. “I want someone to not make mistakes.”
