Patty’s Ponderings: Work while you sleep?

Sleeping Woman (FILE)

A Harvard time management expert says you can work in your sleep. (Hallelujah! That is just what your boss has been waiting to hear!) Pose a question to yourself before you go to sleep and your subconscious will work on the answer while you slumber.

I can attest that this process, indeed,  really works whether you want it to or not.

One night last week, right before I fell asleep, I was trying to remember the name of the comedian who wrote and stars in the new movie ‘Hit and Run’. He is also a cast member of the NBC television series ‘Parenthood’.

Try as I might I just could not think of his name. I fell asleep and all night long in every dream I had, proceeded to try and remember it. Even while dreaming, I’d see his face, hear his voice and ask anyone in the dream who was paying attention, if they knew his name!

No one did.

In fact I didn’t find out his name until I did a web search when I got to work the next morning. (In case you’re wondering, his name is Dax Shepard). So, I spent the whole night working on an idiotic problem, figured out nothing and felt extra worn out because of it!

Thanks so much, Mr. Harvard!
