I was a college student many, many years ago. My Freshman year I worked hard and got mostly A's. First semester Sophmore year I found the joy of studying into the wee (and not so wee - 4AM) hours of the morning. Actually, I needed to stay up that late to get my homework done. The problem was that Organic Chemistry was at 8AM. So I would grab a couple hours of sleep. Go to my Chem class and literally sleep through the class. This was not helpful.

In hindsight, staying up late to study (particularly to study for a test) was counterproductive for me. I would have done better on the test if I had some good solid sleep behind me. I have tried to learn this lesson (and teach it to my children) with varying degrees of success.

When I was in high school, somehow I was smart enough to go to bed at a reasonable time and then get up early to finish whatever it was. That way, at least, while I was working on the project I wasn't falling asleep at the same time.

This rambles a little - I haven't been sleeping well 8^)

I guess the bottom line is that I believe that you will do better work IN LESS TIME if you are getting enough sleep.
