While the article describes how this worked for advertising professionals, I'm not sure it can be applied to all fields....
Personally I think people who sleep after being given a problem were also more likely to come up with a creative solution compared to those who stayed awake. Studies show that relaxing is actually what works.

    Whiskey's too tough, Champagne costs too much, Vodka puts my mouth in gear. I hope this refrain, Will help me explain, As a matter of fact, I like beer.
