"Get 'In the Zone' on Command with a Focus Song" is on Dumb Little Man!

I have a friend, Matt, who listens to the same song on repeat every time he works on his computer. The exact same song. On repeat. All the time. Yes, he’s a little crazy. When I asked him about it, he said it helps him focus.

Turns out, he’s been listening to this same song since college. That’s four years of undergrad, five years of graduate school, and several more years working in college ministry. I was flabbergasted.

“You’ve listened to the same song on repeat for almost two decades?!” I asked in disbelief.

He just shrugged and said, “Man, I don’t even hear it anymore. I just immediately get in the zone.”

Now, that stayed with me. He had found a way to summon at will that elusive and prized aspect of productivity – focus, so he can get into the invaluable deep work mode.
