Napping: The Ninth Habit of Effective People

November 17, 2006

I thought it was a joke when I first saw Merlin Mann’s blog post about software that helps you take a nap to increase productivity. I mean, “ultradian rhythms?” That sounds like something out of Star Trek. But apparently, it’s for real. The software is called “Pzizz,” and thanks in part to Merlin, it’s the hottest thing since espresso.

I have downloaded a copy, but I have not yet gotten up the nerve to try it. I can’t figure out what I would put on my time sheet. 🙂

Update 11/27/2006: I tried a Pzizz nap at home this weekend and it worked great! However, I still don’t want to risk napping at work. I don’t think Starbucks has anything to worry about just yet.
