Okay, did that headline catch your attention? This advice from Arianna Huffington, CEO of the Huffington Post, isn't as shocking as it might first appear. She is talking literally about how sleep is vital if you want to reach the pinnacle of success in your entrepreneurial life. The bottom line is that, no matter how busy your life becomes, if you skimp on your sleep you are causing both harm to yourself and your business. All the studies show that if you are sleep deprived your decision-making becomes compromised; you are more likely to get sick; your physical fitness will be affected; and your business and personal life will both suffer. Sleep will have a big impact on your chances of success as an entrepreneur. With so many demands on you as a business owner, it can be easy to forget to take care of yourself. But in order to thrive you have to put your needs, and those of your family, first. So get some rest!
