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


I’m not the only one espousing this:

Pick music that has no lyrics, has pace, and that doesn’t distract from the task at hand.

See what happens…
