Hi everyone, and welcome to Welcome Wednesday!
We love to see our new Atlassian Community members sharing in the Welcome Center and asking us questions.
What I’d love to find out today from our Community is: Do you listen to music, podcasts or prefer total silence when you work? 🎧 What motivates you?
Since I tend to multitask (read: flit manically between different tasks), it doesn’t distract me to listen to music while I work. I have a special playlist I created while working in customer service which I think helps project a calm and level-headed vibe. Grateful Dead, Crowded House, The Sleepy Jackson, Badly Drawn Boy (amongst others) help me to keep things in perspective! I cannot, however, listen to podcasts while working. I end up becoming too involved in the dialogue and too distracted!
What about you? Do you listen to podcasts, classical music, white noise? Do you need total silence 🤫 ? What helps keep you focused and motivated? Please share in the comments!
