    I'm starting to think that's the only way I can achieve all of my goals.

    What do you think?

    "There is no limit to what you can accomplish if you don't mind who gets the credit."

    That's the one I've grown familiar with.

    Lots of folks have had a great deal of success without selling out all of their principals and neglecting their families. There are always options, even if you cannot see them at the moment.

    The phrase "You can do anything..." is rhetorical, not factual. In fact, no-one can do whatever they chose, but can do only some things they chose.

    I find sleep to be kind of important actually.

    It's hard, but sleep, like many other things (including gym, loved ones, etc.) are things you need to function well. You just have to learn to be efficient and balanced.

    Yes, this is what we tell new-hires in the corporate world. Especially those with crushing student loan debt-loads and high rent. The subtext is that if you burn out, there are plenty of eager replacements out there ready to jump on the treadmill. Oh, and don't forget that the fine print in that contract you signed on the first day had unbelievably broad IP and non-compete clauses.

    BWHA HA HA HA hahahahahaha...

    The short-term gains of shorting sleep and relaxation may work out for you, but on the long haul well rested people are more productive. Of course I think getting laid occasionally would help too, but so far this is only a theory for me.
