Can you literally sleep your way to success? Arianna Huffington says YES! Why do great and brilliant leaders make terrible mistakes? The answer may be that if we are so sleep deprived it may lead to impaired thinking and impaired functioning. The tragedy of trying to do more and more at the cost of our sleep is that eventually we become less and less effective. We do keep ourselves busy when we deprive ourselves of sleep, but this may be more related to spinning in circles rather than being productive and getting anywhere. In this short but effective TED talk Arianna Huffington invites us to simply shut our eyes and discover for ourselves the power of sleep.
