No- I Dont Sleep

My Noggin *updated November 2008*: I am asked about twice or three times a day about my sleep patterns. This comes up because I produce a lot of content, all the time, and because I’m quite active on sites like Twitter. The truth is, though, I don’t sleep as much as most people. And so, I’ve written this post to talk just a little about this.

I don’t sleep much. One reason is that I’m a dad of two smallish kids. These things – children – seem to have nuclear generators aboard them, and they require about as much sleep as truck drivers. So, that’s one reason.

The other reason is that my head is always racing. I lie in bed thinking about the future, about communications, and about how I can help people do more with their businesses. It’s a horrible thing. I wish I thought about world hunger or super powers or beautiful parks in the wilderness. I think about this stuff that I talk about all the time.

Another reason why it seems that I don’t sleep is that you use your time differently than me. You watch a little TV, and/or you have other pursuits. You do this or that or whatever, and it’s not the same as what i do. I make stuff, all the time.

So no, to answer your question, I don’t sleep.
