    Also better to get 8 hours of sleep if that results in a SOLID 16 hour day.
    And if it is possible to slowly condition ur body to less sleep in a healthy manner, u can go down to 7,6,5 etc hours of sleep.

    I'm currently unemployed but when I have to get a job again, i assume it'll be similar to 9-5 hours. I'd go to bed IMMEDIATELY after i come home from work. So when i wake up after however long my body requires, i will have a non fragmented amount of time to do stuff with before the job.

    The less sleep u naturally require, the more time you have to play with.

    This is as simple a strategy as it gets in my opinion.

    Go to sleep at 12:00-12:30am. Up at 8:00-8:30am.

    If I didn't have kids, I'd be up until about 2am and sleep until about 10am.

    I watched your video (enjoyed it and you sound like a good dude) and gave this a shot this morning. Didn't feel so great this morning but am still rocking right now. Going to try it all this week too. Going to either try to crank out an hour or two of work in the morning before my day job or get my workout in so that I have the extra time to work when I get home after the day job.

    Jesus RazorCut you’re like the epitome of a Dale Carnegie training elite graduate.
    I would have banned the cheeseball and moved on to the next thread.

    I’m waking up every morning at 4am and I feel just fine sleeping 7 hours a night. Besides, in the morning, I don’t have brain fog or thoughts running through my head and it’s very silent, which I admire as it can be an easier way to start the day and or develop new habits.

    Yup, and I haven't been very successful. That said, I got up at 7:15am this morning and went to the gym before the boys left for school -- first time that's happened in years. Probably some thanks to daylight savings. We'll see if I can make it two in a row tomorrow... :)

    Oh thank you so much for your comment!
    You should definitely give it a serious try, I am now at my 3rd month in a row, the key is to be super disciplined when it comes to bed time in the evening... it is the hardest for me, still working on it, but the results have been great until now!

    You might want to check this out. It's a deep look at someone who tried to need less sleep. The accompanying discussion on self-discipline is interesting.

    reads like someone who lacks willpower! lol
    naw i agree detaching guilt/shame from a failure works. Meditation helps with that.

    i heard of the 20 minute sleep cycles and i aint tryna go there lol, but 4 hours a day sure beats 8 hours.
    I wonder how Donald Trump sleeps 4 hours.

    Are you trying polyphasic sleep?

    I'm curious if anyone has had success with it.

    I was actually thinking of starting a similar post, glad I searched beforehand haha.

    I read the 5AM Club and have been waking up at 5AM ever since. I also use a modified version of Robin's 20/20/20 method. For the first hour (victory hour), I do the following:
    • 5:00 AM - 5:20 AM - Stretch & light movement
    • 5:20 AM - 5:40 AM - Set goals for the day
    • 5:40 AM - 6:00 AM - Read

    That's a great start of the day! How many extra hours do you get before work by waking up at 5am?

    I start my workday at 9am, so 4 hours. I also forgot to mention... no digital devices the entire first hour of the day as well.
