xxxxiii) Depression

Not understanding the symptoms of depression and confusing them with a disengaged worker. Impact of lack of sleep not fully appreciated

"...Workers, especially those with children, are not getting enough sleep, leading to a drain on creativity and innovation, crankiness, bad management and too many mistakes..."

James Hall, 2004

Never made decisions when tired or exhausted!!!!!! Furthermore,

"...Contemporary work and social culture glorifies sleeplessness in the way we once glorified people who could hold their liquor. We now know that 24 hours without sleep or a week of sleeping four or five hours a night induces an impairment equivalent to a blood alcohol level of 0.1%......the analogy to drunkenness is real because, like a drunk, a person who is sleep-deprived has no idea how functionally impaired he or she truly is. Moreover, their efficiency at work will suffer substantially, contributing to the phenomenon of presenteeism..."

Charles Czeisler, 2006
