Productivity Hack: Music
Here's a crazy productivity hack for you:
When you are working, listen to music that you used to play video games to as a kid.

Age of Empires 2:
Halo: Combat Evolved:
This soundtrack in particular backed many hundreds of hours of grinding - therefore it goes without saying that I have an affinity to focus while listening
Pick music that has no lyrics, has pace, and that doesn't distract from the task at hand.
See what happens...
