I am thinking PL and P level mainly, so I guess similar to yours. My question is really this - I see these folks send out notes and emails at 6AM, work all day in front of me, maybe get an hour in the evening to commute, dinner, then they workout, then they’re sending out emails/notes again and many times we are all working together until midnight and beyond. So where does all this energy come from? Seems like they hardly sleep too
