As a self-employed person, I often find my days can be lonely and I can very easily get distracted my from main goals and objectives. I found that different genres of music have not only helped my productivity but also my moral.
I work as an advertising photographer, which despite what people may think, means I spend a lot of time editing photos and doing general business tasks. The hardest thing to keep going on is editing. It’s easy to lose focus and motivation if you’re editing photos from the same shoot for 5 hours. This is where music has made a huge difference. If I need to be head down, no thinking, just get on with it then I play upbeat music that I love and can song along with.
