The (dark) art of learning while sleeping
Did you know that we spend an average of 1/3 of our short little lives under the blankets? That’s right, years of our lives wasted on counting sheep, becoming famous for no apparent reason or and having loads of hair (I can dream, can’t I?).
Our blog is about maximizing productivity, pushing our boundaries ’till there are no boundaries whatsoever (sad to be you, Trump). What if I tell you that you can learn while you’re dreaming with Natalie Portman? Well, I won’t, but still hear me out, ’cause it’s awesome.
You cannot hack mother nature’s way to guide the galaxy and our lives. We are limited to a certain amount of content that can be absorbed by our microscopic brains and just a small share of that content will become a long-term knowledge. You cannot be an engineer just by listening for eight straight hours a how-to learn differential equations.
Acquiring a new field of knowledge demands full attention to understand the basic principles of it’s core subjects, but reassuring that subject while you’re counting sheep it’s a go-to technique. You won’t be learning anything new, just making sure you’re constructing a solid foundation to your daily content.
Maybe sleeping should have only one purpose only: sleep. Do you have any thoughts about this post? Let us know in the comment section below.
