I'm always trying to find ways to be more productive...sadly I haven't found a perfect answer. Some days some things work, other days it won't cut it for me anymore. On the search for more answers, I found this article on LifeHacker with some tunes that might be able to help out. #pleasework Music doesn't work for everyone. Some studies have shown that the right kind of music can boost productivity...but working in complete silence works for other people too. It all depends. I think for me, if I'm working on something that requires me to be analytical (like that depressing actuarial assignment sitting on my desk), I prefer to be in complete silence. If I'm working on a coding assignment or writing, I prefer to have some kind of music in the background. Here's music Lifehacker recommends for productivity: 1. Classical 2. Ambient/Electronic 3. Noise - Coffee Shop Sounds, Rain, Nature, etc What do you all listen to when working? I usually listen to Yann Tiersen, Sigur Ros, bossa nova, or instrumental jazz. Sometimes Daft Punk or even EDM. I'd love to hear your suggestions!
This is why I always try to play some nice classical or ambient music during my class. Some days I'll even let my kids use their own iPods and such!
Nothing is better than cooking with classical music. You are able to zone out but focus at the same time if that makes any sense at all :)
Ambient/Electronic for me! The upbeat music speeds up my work pace.
I definitely use the "noise" category of this: if I know the lyrics, i get distracted singing along, but if its too quiet or calm (re: some classical music) I'm asleep!!!
I usually like to study where it's quiet but I think I'll try listening to some classical c:
