We've talked about filtering the noise around us, creating environments where we can focus, isolation, and even organization. Now, how does music blend together in all that? There are people who find it distracting, others have their mood soothed. Some do more work, others do less work. Today's article talks about exactly that and it comes down to one thing, mostly: Whether the music makes you feel better, or not. If you feel happy listening to the music, the improvement in your mood will help you act more creatively, and thus get more accomplished depending on your work. If the song or sound you are listening to is too provocative for you, then you will find it distracting and it will detract from your work. But that's a simple summarization. Check this out: And there is catch to all that: The article also makes an affiliative recommendation about an online app called Focus@Will , which is sort of streamlined music player. Just don't hold that definition on me, I'm saying this as I go and they must have their own definition. :P The heading in their main page says: "Scientifically optimized music to help you focus".

For the full experience, read the article here and tell us what you think of it. Except you are probably your own boss around here.
