Polyphasic sleeping

It's based on the idea that by partitioning your sleep into segments, you can get away with less of it.

  • To do first: the most important responsibilities that need to be done today or tomorrow.
  • Schedule: important tasks that are not urgent.
  • Delegate: essential items that are not important.
  • Don't do: tasks that aren't important or urgent.
