Are you getting enough sleep

I recently got an email from a friend about a leading Indian CEO 'Ranjan Das' being killed by a stroke. He was a very active, fit man who took active part in sports (He's a marathon runner). He had good eating habits as well.
According to the article the primary reason for the stroke was lack of sleep. Most of us in the competitive world (Specially so in Software field) go through a lot of nights without sleep. The most dis-heartning thing is that most of us tend to be proud about ones ability to go on without sleep. 'I worked for 20 continuous hours man...WOW'. That's just not right!

Try this test to figure out whether you get enough sleep. It's called 'Epworth Sleepiness Scale'.
