What sights and smells focus you on completing the project?

I’m a musician so my soundscape means a lot more to me than anything else. Words of encouragement or wisdom spoken around me winds me up to get to the project finalized – like high octane coffee.

Music ,that I enjoy, works on me like high octane coffee and sugar – I am amped! Ready to go at the project with everything I got.


Here’s the Quitter Conference Playlist:

The Temper Trap – Sweet Disposition

NeedToBreathe – Something Beautiful

Angels and Airwaves – The Adventure

The Chemical Brothers – Block Rockin’ Beats

PSY – Gangnam Style

Europe – The Final Countdown

I’d offer these for your consideration:

Israel and New Breed – Rejoice

Itzhak Perlman and Isaac Stern – Bach Double Violin Concerto in D Minor

Jesus Adrian Romero – Te Veo

Kirk Franklin – Brighter Day

David Crowder Band – How He Loves Us

Salvador – Aware

The Cranberries – Dream

And yes, on different days my list might include Metallica or Chicago or Beethoven or Monteverdi.
What do you listen to when you need to focus?
How do you make sure your environment is priming you to ship your greatest work out to your most fervent fans?
