Thanks for this. Noticed the same phenomenon during my art school days. A lot of students would consistently "brag" about pulling all nighters. Was their work better? No. It may work at the end of a project when you need to get some stuff wrapped up and have the adrenaline to keep you focused, but regularly? No. This is especially true in programming and especially design, where making the right decision is all that matters.
