I’ve always been someone who listened to music on my laptop when I needed to crank out some work. Helps me to focus and block everything else out. The key was always to find music that I knew so I didn’t get distracted by the music itself.
Recently I’ve heard of people watching (or listening to) movies while they work. I thought that sounded crazy at first but then a week ago decided to try it out. Of course I chose Fletch,
my favorite movie the best movie in the world, and see how it went. I run it in the background while I work and at this point I’ve probably listened to it a dozen times over the last week. It does the trick, plus I get to once in a while pull it up and laugh at some of my favorite scenes.
I plan to add Jerry Maguire and She’s Having a Baby (don’t judge, its a hilarious and under-appreciated movie!) to the rotation soon.
