If you need to sleep, sleep. If you code, code.

I enjoyed this part of The 10 rules of a Zen programmer:

Kodo Sawaki says: if you need to sleep, sleep. Don’t plan your software when you try to sleep. Just sleep. If you code, code. Don’t dream away – code. If you are so tired that you cannot program, sleep.

I like the concept of Zen programming, too:

Focus. Keep your mind clean. Beginner's mind. And so on.


This is so perfect for me considering it's 5AM and I'm having such a productive night... er... morning!

Heh heh. No, seriously.

Get enough sleep, and prioritize it over any other task.

I stand my ground on this one. :)
