Whenever I am asked how I find the time to teach, write novels and run a small business, I reply that I don’t sleep as much as most people, therefore I have more hours in the day to be productive.
I also contend that I am an efficient sleeper, using my ability to fall asleep in seconds to make the best use of my time in bed.
My friend, Kim, finds this claim to be amusing at best, but I think it’s true.
I contend that although I only sleep about five hours a night, I use every minute for sleep rather than tossing and turning like so many. This is how I manage to remain alert and productive despite my lack of sleep in comparison to others.
But it turns out that rather than being efficient, I may just be genetically superior.
