The Night Before…
It’s the night before your company presentation and all you want is a few hours of undisturbed sleep.
You have been working tirelessly for three months in preparation. There have been late nights in the office, when the only people in the building have been you, the security guard and the cleaning staff. There have been hour-long Skype sessions with the tech department in Toronto and countless meetings with your team in Vancouver.
You saw your idea evolve from a boardroom discussion to a tangible product. Over thirty employees put their time and resources into its development. Now it is time to sell it to the company brass.
Lying on your bed, staring at the ceiling, you run through the presentation in your head. You have done all you can.
The only thing left to do is receive the seven hours of sleep you need to stay alert and focused.
You roll over on to another lump and openly curse your twelve-year-old mattress.
