Hello. Let me take a second to introduce myself. I am Neetu, Manish's younger sister by 2 years. We live together in an apartment and have decided to transition to polyphasic napping as a new lifestyle. Why waste all that time sleeping? Life's too short? Not anymore!
Anyways, I am writing his blog because he is incoherent to mentally tasking activities at the moment. He spent two nights sleeping for about 5 hours of sleep each night, and now he is further sleep deprived on the polyphasic sleep diet. He has resulted to cleaning his room and organizing his socks to stay awake. We look forward to the moment when fatigues stops being an issue, and the productivity really kicks in. At the moment, it is just a battle between us and the clock.
We were inspired by the by the experiment of Steve Pavlina and the constant borage and enthusiasm of our buddy Cornrow. On Pavlina's blog, you can read about his experiences and challenges in adopting to the new sleep schedule. Luckily, we are scattering our sleep cycles so that we can wake each other up after our naps. Cornrow got an early start and is pretty much already on the schedule, which is fantastic so he can keep us psyched and drive us around when we are delerious!
So, according to Steve, he is okay as long as he is up and going or doing something. What if we just want to chill and watch a movie? Will we still be able to just sit and chill normally?
Anyways, we'll keep you updated. Manish will get back to you when he is no longer mentally fried. good night. wait, good morning. whatever.
Alright, rocketeers... this post is on a subject that's near and dear to my heart.
Whenever people hear about the polyphasic sleep schedule, they come up with reasons they couldn't do it. I don't know why... It's really awesome and everyone should want to do it. By far the most common excuse is :
"But I love my sleep. I would never want to give it up."
I just finished Darren Hardy's The Compound Effect, and enjoyed it much more than I suspected. At first, I thought this would be another self-help book that suggested a mystical path to success involving the law of attraction, fairy gumdrops, and a "1 time offer" for a $299 e-course. It wasn't.
I thought Hardy's anecdotes would be fluffy and vague, limited by his own experiences, but instead I found the opposite. As I read Hardy's examples many other came to mind, his stories provided a link to mine.
The book has four main areas.
And the main point is this:
