I have determined that the best way for me to get work done at this stage in my life is to listen to ambient music, rather than my normal lists on Spotify. It helps keep my brain from racing. For right now I’m using the soundscapes provided by Ambient Mix, which leaves my phone free to do, well, phone things. There’s a list of ambient playlists on Spotify that my friend Tom McFarlin published sometime back, and once I find that link again, and then do the searching for those lists from the app on my phone, I’ll probably switch back to using Spotify for work things. I need to spend some more time with Spotify on the PC anyway so I can become more familiar with how the UI works.

That time when your phone starts tri-toning you to death, and you wonder what’s going on, and then you realize that Slack has changed their notification sound. I’m not complaining. Tri-tone is a lot less annoying when tons of messages are coming in than the original Slack notification sounder. Don’t anyone hold this against me when I complain about the tri-tone. 🙂
