With SURTEX starting less than 2 weeks away, I’m in a little bit of a panic.  It happens every year – I feel like it’s crunch time… what else can I get done? Can I do one more collection? Two?  Will my last minute creations be the one that is the big hit at the show?  Should I work a few more hours and sleep less?

I was very happy to find this short TED talk that tells me no – my desire and habit of getting 7-8 hours of sleep a night is the key to my success.  Sleep is good – sleep deprivation and all nighters shouldn’t be a badge of honor.  (I’ve always thought this and feel quite validated today!)

Go here and take a look – it’s only 3 minutes – then join me in my efforts to “sleep my way to the top”. 😉

Here’s to your creative – and well rested – success!
