Way Ahead of the Curve

I am finally being appreciated for being the forward thinker that I am- The AFP News Service reports that naps are now good.

Taking naps and even installing beds at work can boost productivity and morale.

Companies are encouraged to put out food and beverage in areas designated as creativity rooms for brainstorming sessions.

Not to toot my own horn, but I pioneered this practice.

For years my office was a virtual paradise of creativity and brainstorming. I had a couch for sleeping and a fully stocked bar filled with beverages and food- if you consider cocktail onions and olives as food.

The story goes on to site the case of Beach Boy Brian Wilson, who "stayed in bed for two years at the height of his powers in the mid 1960s in what fans refer to as his 'hibernation period'”.

I once went to bed on a Sunday morning in 1989 after a particularly hard few days of “creativity and brainstorming” over at Hobies Roadhouse in Concord. When I woke up on Tuesday, while I didn’t feel too creative, I did feel the storm in my brain.

So in an effort to become a more productive and morale employee, I will now crawl under my desk and say good night.
