Do you listen to music while you work?
When walking around the office, I often notice that some of our staff wear headphones and listen to music while they do their work. It made me wonder how many of the affiliates and affiliate managers who are active here at the GPWA listen to music while they work, and if they do, what they listen to and how often they do it. Do you listen to music? And if you do, do you think it makes you more or less productive than you would otherwise be? View poll

How about bumping this idea? Anyone have time management/organizing tips? I still have no real schedule or work pattern and I know I could be 10,000 percent more productive. read more
