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!
