My Process: How @Grooveshark Helps Me Create More From Less.

It”s a ritual.

It”s more like a dance that I do in my head.

If I am not listening to music then my brain is sitting on the bench looking away at all the pretty butterflies floating around the world and I can not focus on my objectives.  I have found that when I spend about 30 minutes creating a playlist of something new/old then I can really squeeze more potential energy pokies online out of my work and achieve great things.

“Hard work is a prison sentence only if it does not have meaning.”
— Malcolm Gladwell

If Mr. Gladwell is correct, music is an environment designed to help me remember what it is all for.  I look back at all the moments of time where I was constantly working and I can tell you which album got me through the roadblocks and which albums helped create energy in the moments when my motivation was teetering on “over-worked” and wavering burnouts.

This is a deal breaker.

No music.  No work.

Thank you Grooveshark for making listening to music easy.
