  1. I would love to see some resources/links about 10pm – 2am being the ‘money time’ for sleep (Especially the part where 1 hr = 2 hrs). I’ve googled it and found random articles from non-credible websites agreeing with the time, but I’ve also found that an equal amount of non-credible websites that say 9pm-12am is the optimum time.

    And then if you look at the circadian rhythm, it says you get your deepest sleep at 2am. This would probably mean +- an hour or two on each side. So 12am – 4 am?

    I tried looking at Shawn Stevenson’s site, but had no luck. If anyone can find some credibility, that would be awesome! I’d rather not mess with my sleep schedule unless I have proof. Right now I sleep from 11pm – 7am.

    But I did love the talk, the story, the message, and tricks! These podcasts are really interesting, Sean. You’re doing great things!
