How Sleep Deprivation Drives The High Failure Rates of Tech Startups

This puts into words SO MUCH OF WHAT I HAVE BEEN THINKING for a couple of years now.

It’s not just tech, though. This could and should be applied to most industries.

Of course, none of them will step up and make any commitment to this, because it would put them at a competitive disadvantage. It’s hard to imagine things getting worse, but I bet somehow they will.

cab ride


I was coming from the East Village and late to work as usual, so I took a cab instead of the M15. “Water and Broad,” I said to the driver, an older Asian man. “You are going to NYU?” he asked. “You a student?” 
"Just to work," I said.
"You remind me of my daughter," he said. "She is so smart. So, so smart. She went to Phillip Exeter. But I lost her. Four years ago. She committed suicide." He produced a laminated photo of the girl when she was around fifteen or so. He kissed it. "I tried to kill myself twice after she did," he said. "It didn’t work. You know, she had everything. I had a good job before this." He kissed the photo again. "I have a house, I’ve paid my mortgage. She was a rich girl." He kissed the photo. "You think, rich girl has everything. But it’s all a lie. You’re just keeping it away from someone else." We went over a pothole. "I wish someone could have told her all this."

He turned onto the FDR. The windows were halfway down, so he had to raise his voice over the wind as he twisted halfway around to talk. “Happiness is the biggest weapon you have!” he shouted. “Every day, you have to fight through with happiness!”

The thing about Harrison [Ford] was Harrison could fuck. Nine people a day. It’s a talent, loving nine different people in one day. Warren [Beatty] could only do six.
