Sleep as an investment, not a cost

Patricia D. Horoho is a retired United States Army lieutenant general who also served as the 43rd U.S. Army Surgeon General and the Commanding General of the U.S. Army Medical Command. And this interview shares some of her strong beliefs about the importance of sleep in achieving peak performance. In particular, I loved this phrase: “We’ve got to view each hour of sleep as the ammunition our brains need.”

Think of sleep not as a cost to your performance today, but as an investment in your performance tomorrow.
