Daily Musings - Shane Black

Set The Mood

Sitting in silence is good for some things, but my mind will wander off too easily. Setting the mood allows me to get focused and get more work done.

I normally do this by having some music play in the background of where I’m working or through my headphones.

I play a wide variety of music. From rap, hip hop and RnB, through to blues, classical, movie soundtracks, and even a bit of pop. It’s not uncommon for me to have a song on repeat for an hour or two either.

To change things up, sometimes I’ll play a movie instead. A movie that I have already seen a number of times works best.

Having this ambient noise in the background works for me. But I know it doesn’t work for everyone.

While studying the routines of other successful people, it has surprised me how many have similar practices though.
