What keep you awake at night?

I find in my daily interactions with Business Leaders a variety of issues creating their personal Insomnia.  You might find it interesting that not all the reasons for staying awake are related directly to their business.

These Presidents, Owners, CEO’s, and C-Suite Leaders are just like you and I.  They also worry about family, their kids, aging parents, finances, faith, vacation planning, their golf game, politics, the economy, and when the sun may shine again.  And when Insomnia hits, we find ourselves helplessly enslaved to another sleepless night.  Staring at the ceiling, writing on a yellow pad, sending e-mails, turning on the tv, or even leaving voice mails are a few of the symptoms that hit Leaders with Insomnia.

The common denominator – we all find issues in the middle of the night that are critical to us.  These real and personal issues rob us of our energy, mental clarity, physical strength, and result in a challenge to meet the demands of the following day.  And when we lead others, and lead an organization, the risk of the impact becomes very real for many others.

Insomnia – Do you have it?

Insomnia – The killer of leader effectiveness.

Insomnia – What do you do about it?

Insomnia – Tell me your stories.

    Steve,

    I like the post! I used to suffer from insomnia at night because I had the habit of spending a lot of time on the computer for about two to three hours before I went to bed. Once I was done on the computer, I would stay up late because my brain was going a hundred miles a minute thinking about everything under the sun. My lack of sleep was limiting my effectiveness as a leader at work, as a dad at home, and as a husband to my wife.

    Once I realized this, I completely changed my schedule. I went from doing all my computer work at night to doing it early in the morning. Now, I get up at 5:00 AM and do all my work that I was doing at night. That change has allowed me to spend more time with my family at night instead of the computer which has increased the amount of quality time I get with my wife and daughters. I also been go to bed earlier which has made me more alert at work. The simple shift in when I do what, has had a dramatic effect on me in all aspects of my life.
