What does Proverbs 24:33 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Proverbs 24:33

[Yet] a little sleep, a little slumber
The sight of the field and vineyard of the slothful put Solomon in mind of an observation he had made before, which fitly describes the disposition and gesture of the sluggard, by which means his field and vineyard came to ruin; while he should be up and tilling his field and planting his vineyard, he is in his bed; and awaking, instead of rising, craves for and indulges himself in another little doze, and which he repeats again and again; a little folding of the hands to sleep;
which ought to have been employed another way; (See Gill on Proverbs 6:10).
