Fatigue makes cowards of us all.

When we’re going after the really big goals, we’ve got to get a good night’s sleep. Stepping out and betting on ourselves takes guts. We’ve got to have our wits about us and that means being well rested.

People who have set no goal beyond making it to Friday, can spend their evenings playing video games or watching TV. They’re not trying to make things happen, so it doesn’t matter if they sleepwalk through their days.

About the author 

Valerie Francis

Valerie Francis is a bestselling author, literary editor, and podcaster with a passion for stories by, for and about women.

Each month, Valerie recommends books from literature’s best female authors. Selections come from every genre because women write, and read, in every genre. The Women’s Fiction category offers up some terrific novels, but these days there’s a strong female presence in thriller, horror, crime, and other genres traditionally dominated by male writers. No matter what the publishing companies may think, in the 21st Century, Women’s Fiction is whatever we want it to be.
