7 Ways to Be More Productive at a Startup

Pick your own hours

Know how to relax

Listen to music

  1. Musical structure. Songs with a more complex musical structure, such as Frank Zappa’s “Muffin Man” can be more distracting to listeners when compared to songs with a simple three-chord structure, such as John Denver’s “Leaving on a Jet Plane”.
  2. Lyrics. Lyrics can distract, as they cause you to focus on the message of the song and interrupt your train of thought.
  3. Listening habits. If someone is used to listening to music while working, it’s often more beneficial than distracting. The reverse is true as well.
  4. Difficulty of tasks. If a task requires more thought and focus, music can make it more difficult to work efficiently.
  5. Control. When music is imposed upon someone, it’s usually more distracting than if the person has a choice in the matter.

Start with small tasks

Put yourself in the right mindset & the right environment

Ask for help if blocked

Be proactive

It’s not enough
