From : NYT's Maybe Your Sleep Problem Isn’t a Problem
In today's modern workplace, the options of how and when you do your work gets more dynamic. For a person who does the bulk of the technical load. It gives a sense of relief knowing that I can do my work without distractions throughout the night, then finally report to my boss by the time I'm heading to sleep. Chances are by the time my boss would wake up and open up their mail, they're now reading the latest progress report of the previous work day.
The major contrast here would be the form of communication between the larky bosses and the night owl grunts. It took me time to realize this, but I think it's a great format if I consider that my peak efficiency is always at night. Another thing to compromise is how to deal with in-person meetings. For people who are not used to waking up and joining the early morning rush, what worries me the most is adjusting with the time and one's body clock too.
It's not only that's becoming dynamic, consider a piece of legislation too. Under the bill, the five day work week is cramped to four days. The only deal breaker at its current form is the employee should render 12 hours a day. I digress as its a story for a another time.
When you talk about work efficiency and/or productivity. Sleep plays a huge role in it. Not only you feel refreshed the next day, sleep for that matter, enables us to gain different perspectives in solving the never ending crunch of work problems. That is why solving those problems in comparison from sleepless nights is a huge difference.
I used to think, sleep is for the weak; but as I grew older it shook me as how it changed my view on sleep. Having better sleep than sleepless nights lets me work more efficiently with a side dose of how it could go dynamic.
