The Easy Way to Beat Jet Lag

Someone (@philiplilly) asked me how I deal with jet lag. I fired off a quick answer ("adjust to the target time ASAP"), which I only later realized isn't what I actually do. It's what everyone else does. So here's what I really do:

I cut my sleep into two chunks, one corresponding to a normal sleep or wake time in the country I'm leaving from, and one corresponding to a normal wake up time in my destination.

So, for example, last week I came to Japan, which is eight hours off from California time. I slept only four hours, from 4:30am to 8:30am, which sounds like it must require intense discipline, but really it ends up being a necessity because I leave all of my travel preparation to the last minute.
