Now hold up a sec... Does Nas truly not sleep to be successful? I'm not so sure about that... But what I am certain about, is that to achieve significant levels of success, you've got to respect the importance of sleep and recovery, just as much as you respect productivity, motivation, discipline, and all of the other critical factors that contribute to achieving massive amounts of success. Why? Without sleep, you cannot and will not function at your most optimal state of awareness and/or performance. Besides, if success is what you truly desire, you've got to be willing to embody the golden rule: "Work hard. Rest harder." As a DIEHARD Crossfitter and lifestyle entrepreneur, I'm always coming into conflict with this one controversial idea, "To be successful, you've got to be willing to do more if you want more." But check this out, back in the 1960s, high school student, Randy Gardner set off to break the world record for the longest number of days spent awake. In just 11 days, Randy began experiencing various cognitive deficiencies like speech and memory problems, eyesight issues, and hallucinations (Ross, 1965). Therefore is doing more going truly going to get you more? Not if you're sacrificing sleep it won't! Look, it matters not if you define success as, financial freedom, physical strength, fulfillment, personal satisfaction, powerful relationships, better health, or etc. the fact remains the same, sleep precedes growth. And as my Crossfit coach, Justin Frimmel always says, "If you're continuously training hard without giving your body and mind a chance to rest and recover, when are you allowing your body to grow?"
