Do not sleep!

    TechCrunch writes about a drug popular in Silicon Valley among entrepreneurs that allows you to stay awake and work efficiently. The Ministry of Defense tested it on helicopter pilots and they could not sleep for 88 hours.

    In Founders At Work, Max Levchin from PayPal says that before signing an agreement with their first venture investor for $ 4 million. they (as usual) the system did not work, so he did not sleep 5 (!) days at all, fixed everything. And after signing the agreement (in Cafe Bucks), he fell face down on an omelet and slept until closing.

    At the same time, it is a very big mistake to consider that all these people are driven forward by money. They are driven forward by ambition, obstinacy, perseverance, the desire to prove, but not money.
