    Make that two of us, Ryan. Music distracts me as I find myself paying more attention to the music than to the work.



    I read of people who work outside but I've found I'm not good at that either...when I tried to work on a laptop on the coast with only the sound of waves and seagulls....I found myself daydreaming instead of working.


    My home office has one window that overlooks grass and woods and sky - and an old boat sign on the wall that says 'though she may creak, she holds'.

      I'm similar except it's music with vocals in it that distracts me. Which is why I listen to a light classical radio station when working. Whenever they have any opera on, I turn that off and listen to ethereal/ambient/new age type stuff. There's an excellent online station for this called The Drone Zone which boasts that it features music without a beat. More soundscapes than actual music.

        If you like the Drone Zone, may I recommend the "Claude Whitacre" channel on You-tube. You can play them automatically in sequence, hours of Droning..caution, you may eventually fall asleep. Do not operate heavy machinery.

          That sounds like sensible advice.

      I like to listen to music, (well l think that everyone knows what l like to listen to by now) when l can, but can't do it when l need to concentrate on some task.

      So writing an important email, or doing some online transaction, l need silence, but if it is graphic work, then no probs.

    It depends on what I am doing If I am working out I might listen to hardcore punk rock music or rap. It all depends on your preference . The music that i listen to might not appeal to you and vice versa.
