Does this sound familiar? It’s 6am and the alarm goes off. You hit the snooze button and try to catch a few more minutes of sleep. Then the alarm goes off again and you hit snooze one more time. On the third try, you finally get out of bed, grab your phone and check your email. You see several messages from your colleagues about something urgent that needs your attention.
