"In Dr. Herbert Laconte’s TED talk, ‘Let’s Go to Bed!’ (2,345,416 views), he counsels that sleep deprivation has an immeasurably detrimental effect on productivity. This was exactly what I had hoped to hear, because I hate starting my day groggy and grumpy. Let yourself sleep until ten or eleven like I do, and you’ll greatly increase your chances of having a productive day!"

"There is a kind of visual thinking that goes on that is without words and not just words spoken but not even words in ones head. Most people think thinking has to do with words, this little voice in your head, but there is a visual thinking that doesn’t have that."
