    How to concentrate on a task.

    I can not concentrate on any task at hand. Especially if I'm on a computer. While writing a policy brief due tomorrow, I realized something... I've done almost this whole thing in one night (i had 3 weeks to do this). How?



    Pick 5-10 of your favorite songs
    Put them on repeat
    Just listen to those songs over and over and over and over, you eventually tune them out and viola, you're doing whatever else you were supposed to be doing! Hope this helps anyone. Post with feedback/experiences

    Oh my, this is the way to became dummer.

    Just relax and work in silence, or try meditating.
    It will help for sure.

    I will try it, however, I doubt it will work since all my favorite songs are all Metallica. Not really the soothing-est kind of music.

    I've always found that it depends on what task i'm doing to what music i'll listen to. If i'm coding, I don't mind a bit of 30STM or something a bit heavier. However if i'm doing math, classical or any ambient music usually works a treat.
