So, you have your Big Why—your purpose and reason to get up in the morning. Maybe it’s saving rhinos, or being a rhino keeper. Or perhaps you want to write the next great American novel. Your Big Why. It’s uniquely yours.

My husband showed me this incredible documentary YouTube video about a man who ran a marathon in 24 hours. A different type of marathon, this was actually focused on how productive the man could be while running one mile every hour for 24 hours.

Ahh, sleep. I’ll admit, usually when I think about it, I’m not conjuring up positive aspects of sleeping. I think about being so bored you fall asleep. How contagious yawning is.
