Hum.. I suppose scheduling is a must if you're sleeping.

Then perhaps that's really the issue at hand. It has to be a difference in
the sleep segment of our various schedules. Folks? How handy do you find
sleep vs. productivity?

My schedule:
6 days a week, 10-18 hrs a day, every other day I end up crashing in the
office to get up early enough to maintain the pace.

I haven't had a breakfast in 3-4 months (my fiancee insisted, but then gave
up on the breakfast thing about 4 months ago), eat lunch whilst working, and
tend to have an hour or two for dinner. Please fill in the necessary
allotments for bathroom breaks, breathing and etc..

Then comes the matter of sleep. I'd say it is what actually permits me to be
as productive as I am. I get between 3-7 hrs (i like to pamper myself on the
weekends) a night.

None-2hrs, if there are major projects nearing deadline.

And sadly, there is always more work. We're a tiny company, and I'm the
fulltime designer / marketing / parttime web developer.

But regardless of that, I think this really has got to be the reason for the
disparity in views of what constitutes a work schedule. . .

What do you think
