    Sleep is a requirement for success

    But how much sleep is too much? And how many hours of sleep is too few? When we go to bed every night, we must calibrate the necessary amount of sleep to sustain an optimal day. This life hack, when executed, can take your daily hustle to the next level.

    That’s why on today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we are joined by Navy SEAL Jocko Willink to discuss his sleep patterns. Jocko is the author of 3 New York Times Bestsellers, most notably Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy SEALs Lead and Win. Willink’s insights spread across multiple domains: from discipline to foreign policy, all the way to how to run a business. Tune in to hear his insights, so you can optimize your sleep habits to perfection.
