One of my sleep “hacks,” which I began doing not long ago, is to stop sleeping in gym clothes in favor of proper pajamas. It lets your mind and body know it’s bedtime. And pajamas have rarely looked as glamorous as they do in Rear Window, when the incredibly beautiful Grace Kelly tells the incredibly handsome James Stewart (who’s wearing pajamas most of the movie, as he convalesces): “I’m going to stay with you tonight.” To figure out the mystery outside his window, naturally. When Stewart replies, “I won’t be able to give you any pajamas,” Kelly opens her Mark Cross overnight case and takes out a gorgeous-looking peach silk nightgown, with matching slippers. “I trade you: my feminine intuition for a bed for the night,” she says. “I’ll go along with that,” he answers. We never do find out how well they slept.

It’s not literally about sleep, but when I came to my own epiphany about sleep, it changed everything. I might as well have swallowed the red pill in The Matrix. When Morpheus first describes being trapped in the Matrix to Neo, it’s as if he’s talking about the all-too-familiar condition of perpetual sleep deprivation: it’s “a prison that you cannot smell or taste or touch—a prison for your mind.” I’m glad I finally took the red pill—and there’s no going back now.

The Godfather

Spanning the years 1945 to 1955, a chronicle of the fictional Italian-American Corleone crime family. When organized crime family patriarch, Vito Corleone barely survives an attempt on his life, his youngest son, Michael steps in to take care of the would-be killers, launching a campaign of bloody revenge.

One sleeping don’t: don’t refuse to cast Johnny Fontane in your movie when asked to by Vito Corleone. In what might be the worst wake-up scenario in film history, producer Jack Woltz regains consciousness only to realize he’s been joined in bed by the severed head of one of his prize horses. The scene is even more jarring because of the beautiful dawn light and soft sounds of crickets as the camera takes us inside Woltz’s mansion. It’s a reminder there are worse things to wake up to than a jarring iPhone alarm.

Groundhog Day

A narcissistic T.V. weatherman, along with his attractive-but-distant producer and mawkish cameraman, is sent to report on Groundhog Day in the small town of Punxsutawney, where he finds himself repeating the same day over and over.

I love the running series of scenes of the alarm clock hitting six A.M. in Groundhog Day (as “I Got You Babe” begins to play). What’s great is Bill Murray’s escalating reaction: throwing it off the table and finally smashing it to bits. We’ve all been there with alarm clocks. But we can’t smash them now—even though, for the sake of our sleep, we probably should—because for most of us they’re also our phones.

Ferris Bueller's Day Off

A high school slacker pretends to be sick to skip school and have an exciting day off alongside his girlfriend and his best buddy through Chicago, while trying to outwit his obsessive school principal and his unconformited sister along the way.

At the beginning of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Ferris tries to get his friend Cameron, who is sick in bed, to come over. Cameron refuses, but after they hang up, he sings this little song to himself in bed, like a chant or a mantra: “When Cameron was in Egypt’s land … let my Cameron go.” Having a morning ritual, before we grab our phones and start our day, is a great habit. (I do a few minutes of breathing.) And it works for Cameron: he rallies, and winds up helping Ferris Bueller have a legendary day off.

Home Alone

Eight-year-old Kevin McCallister makes the most of the situation after his family unwittingly leaves him behind when they go on Christmas vacation. But when a pair of bungling burglars set their sights on Kevin's house, the plucky kid stands ready to defend his territory. By planting booby traps galore, adorably mischievous Kevin stands his ground as his frantic mother attempts to race home before Christmas Day.

In Home Alone, a power outage causes the McCallister parents to oversleep and nearly miss their flight to Paris. Their panic upon waking up—“We slept in!” they say to each other in unison—is familiar to all of us. And, as we all know, the ensuing chaos causes Kevin (Macaulay Culkin) to be left … home alone. On the one hand, yes, we all need to catch flights. On the other, it’s nice to be freed from the tyranny of alarm clocks every so often, even if it’s accidental!

There’s a great scene in The Holiday in which Kate Winslet’s character arrives in L.A. from London. Jet-lagged and in need of sleep, she presses a button by this beautiful plush bed and, to her delight, sees all the (blackout) shades in the bedroom come slowly down. The look of relief and joy on her face made me wish I had the same shade setup at home.

Sleep in Art

This book combines two of my favorite things - art and sleep. Together, with gorgeous images, we also learn why artists from Rubens to Picasso to Matisse to Hockney painted people sleeping in their dreams. And along the way, we also dive deep into the mysteries and science of sleep. This is a transporting journey into the creation of images of something we all cherish: SLEEP. - Arianna Huffington, author of Sleep Revolution. **** A dazzling visual record of our view of our nocturnal lives through the ages. - Professor Guy Leschnizer, author of The Nocturnal Brain. **** Sleep which takes up so much of our lives has a deep, fascinating, and relatively unexplored history in art. Art history is important as it relates to every part of human history. Sleep has significance for virtually every culture in every era of history. This book is an intersection between art and science. It contains over 300 full-color images by some of the world's greatest artists. Sleep is deeply personal. Like good art, the topic hits people at the core. The reader will enjoy relating it to sleep science and the history of sleep science as well. Sleep can be emblematic of health, rest, sex, spirituality, sloth, dreams, the subconscious, the private, and the public.

The Surprising Science of Meetings

A recent estimate suggests that employees endure a staggering 55 million meetings a day in the United States. This tremendous time investment yields only modest returns. No organization made up of human beings is immune from the all-too-common meeting gripes: those that fail to engage, those that inadvertently encourage participants to tune out, and those that blatantly disregard participants' time. Most companies and leaders view poor meetings as an inevitable cost of doing business. But managers can take heart: researchers now have a clear understanding of the key drivers that make meetings successful. In The Surprising Science of Meetings, Steven G. Rogelberg, researcher and consultant to some of the world's most successful companies, draws from extensive research, analytics and data mining, and survey interviews with over 5,000 employees across a range of industries to share the proven practices and techniques that help managers and employees enhance the quality of their meetings. For those who lead and participate in meetings, Rogelberg provides immediate direction, guidance, and relief, offering a how-to guide to change your working life starting today.

Loonshots

* Instant WSJ bestseller * Translated into 18 languages* #1 Most Recommended Book of the year (Bloomberg annual survey of CEOs and entrepreneurs)* An Amazon, Bloomberg, Financial Times, Forbes, Inc., Newsweek, Strategy + Business, Tech Crunch, Washington Post Best Business Book of the year* Recommended by Bill Gates, Daniel Kahneman, Malcolm Gladwell, Dan Pink, Adam Grant, Susan Cain, Sid Mukherjee, Tim FerrissWhy do good teams kill great ideas?Loonshots reveals a surprising new way of thinking about the mysteries of group behavior that challenges everything we thought we knew about nurturing radical breakthroughs.Bahcall, a physicist and entrepreneur, shows why teams, companies, or any group with a mission will suddenly change from embracing new ideas to rejecting them, just as flowing water will suddenly change into brittle ice. Mountains of print have been written about culture. Loonshots identifies the small shifts in structure that control this transition, the same way that temperature controls the change from water to ice.Using examples that range from the spread of fires in forests to the hunt for terrorists online, and stories of thieves and geniuses and kings, Bahcall shows how a new kind of science can help us become the initiators, rather than the victims, of innovative surprise.Over the past decade, researchers have been applying the tools and techniques of this new science—the science of phase transitions—to understand how birds flock, fish swim, brains work, people vote, diseases erupt, and ecosystems collapse. Loonshots is the first to apply this science to the spread of breakthrough ideas. Bahcall distills these insights into practical lessons creatives, entrepreneurs, and visionaries can use to change our world.Along the way, readers will learn how chickens saved millions of lives, what James Bond and Lipitor have in common, what the movie Imitation Game got wrong about WWII, and what really killed Pan Am, Polaroid, and the Qing Dynasty.“If The Da Vinci Code and Freakonomics had a child together, it would be called Loonshots.” —Senator Bob Kerrey

Late Bloomers

A groundbreaking exploration of how finding one's way later in life can be an advantage to long-term achievement and happiness.“What Yogi Berra observed about a baseball game—it ain't over till it's over—is true about life, and [Late Bloomers] is the ultimate proof of this. . . . It’s a keeper.”—ForbesWe live in a society where kids and parents are obsessed with early achievement, from getting perfect scores on SATs to getting into Ivy League colleges to landing an amazing job at Google or Facebook—or even better, creating a start-up with the potential to be the next Google or Facebook or Uber. We see software coders become millionaires or billionaires before age thirty and feel we are failing if we are not one of them. Late bloomers, on the other hand, are under - valued—in popular culture, by educators and employers, and even unwittingly by parents. Yet the fact is, a lot of us—most of us—do not explode out of the gates in life. We have to discover our passions and talents and gifts. That was true for author Rich Karlgaard, who had a mediocre academic career at Stanford (which he got into by a fluke) and, after graduating, worked as a dish - washer and nightwatchman before finally finding the inner motivation and drive that ultimately led him to start up a high-tech magazine in Silicon Valley, and eventually to become the publisher of Forbes magazine. There is a scientific explanation for why so many of us bloom later in life. The executive function of our brains doesn’t mature until age twenty-five—and later for some. In fact, our brain’s capabilities peak at different ages. We actually experience multiple periods of blooming in our lives. Moreover, late bloomers enjoy hid - den strengths due to taking the time to discover their way in life—strengths coveted by many em - ployers and partners, including curiosity, insight, compassion, resilience, and wisdom. Based on years of research, personal experience, interviews with neuroscientists, psychologists, and countless people at different stages of their careers, Late Bloomers reveals how and when we achieve our full potential—and why today’s focus on early success is so misguided, and even harmful.Praise for Late Bloomers“The underlying message that we should ‘consider a kinder clock for human development’ is a compelling one.”—Financial Times“Late Bloomers spoke to me deeply as a parent of two millennials and as a coach to many new college grads (the children of my friends and associates). It’s a bracing tonic for the anxiety they are swimming through, with a facts-based approach to help us all calm down.”—Robin Wolaner, founder of Parenting magazine

Identity Leadership

Become a passionate, purposeful, and meaningful leader through identifying who you are, your strengths, and your skills. New York Times bestselling author Stedman Graham's Identity Leadership is a very personal and prescriptive guide that is based on his philosophy that a leader can't lead others until he can first lead himself-the more he works on himself -- the more he can give to those around him. To know our purpose in life, we begin with our passions, skills, and talents, and with this book we learn how to channel the best of who we are to achieve success for ourselves and those we lead. In Identity Leadership, Graham examines why self-awareness matters, how leaders lead, the importance of communication, and much more. He then shows the reader how to step into their role as a leader and create their identity leadership plan. Key to the journey is believing in yourself, knowing your competence, continually challenging yourself, and being patient with yourself. Graham uses anecdotes from his own life, as well as discussing successful leaders, to illustrate the importance of identity leadership in each of our lives.Self-leaders can create a roadmap that leads to personal growth, development, and improvement of performance in every area of life. Identity Leadership provides the tools-self-awareness, emotional intelligence, discipline, and more-needed to continually plan and execute learning and development of our talents and skills. These tools enable readers to commit to a personal vision and lead with purpose.

Entrepreneur, Editor
The excuse most people use for allowing their phones in their bedrooms overnight — thus allowing their phones to cut into the quality and duration of their sleep — is that they need to use it for an alarm clock. And this is true even for people who actually realize how bad it is for us to sleep next to our phones. If only someone would invent an alarm clock that’s not a phone and a gateway to the internet. Oh, wait, they have! That’s why I love my old-school alarm clock from Pottery Barn. It’s also my most frequently given gift. And by using it to help you get your phone out of the bedroom, you’re less likely to actually need an alarm clock — of any kind — to wake up.

 Bulletproof The Original Ground Coffee, Premium Medium Roast Gourmet Organic Beans

GROUND COFFEE: Our Original Roast Coffee is the result of an obsessive pursuit to find the absolute highest performance coffee beans on earth. It's taken more than 10 years to identify every step of performance-robbing elements formation in coffee and to find a reliable, perfect source of beans that always make you feel great. Clean and bright, Bulletproof Upgraded Coffee is a well-balanced coffee with a full body and undertones of caramel.. PRODUCED WITH HAND PICKED ORGANIC BEANS: Upgraded beans are harvested in Central America from passive organic estates without chemicals (herbicides, pesticides, etc.). Each bean is hand-picked by experienced coffee harvesters - skilled people who only pick perfectly ripe berries. When the coffee beans are not carefully hand-harvested, the beans can be mistakenly picked unripe and damaged, which impacts the taste and can possibly affect the way it makes you feel.. OPTIMIZED TO MINIMIZE THE BAD STUFF: Ingesting impurities can contribute to chronic health issues. The proprietary Bulletproof Process optimizes every step of coffee production for performance by minimizing the opportunity for performance-robbing elements.. BULLETPROOF PURITY PROCESS STANDARD: Bulletproof Upgraded Coffee Beans are meticulously grown at high altitude on single estates in Guatemala, hand-harvested, carefully processed, handled and roasted to maintain maximum integrity and flavor. The final roast then undergoes proprietary lab testing to verify that our coffee meets the Bulletproof quality and purity standards.
