You know you have to write it:
- The proposal
- The summary
- The solicitation request
- The turn down letter
You know in your head what you need and want to say. You also know the impression your writing needs to leave with your reader: informative, concise, professional and direct.
But how the heck does all that turn into sentences on a page, how do you make that come out through your fingers to the keyboard?
Does that blank page and blinking cursor drive you nuts?
Music to work to
Check out music2work2 – instrumental piano driven music that helps you create flow and become more productive. Having non-distracting, supportive and creativity inspiring background music can make all the difference. Allowing you to relax, creating a space around your brain that will permit you to actually get those words down, the catalogue of music2work2 is designed specifically to help you do your best work.
Knowing I have to deliver, and not ?feeling it? can put a lot of pressure on me; knowing that I need to get it written, clearly and soon, aaaccckkk! The pressure to produce then becomes the obstacle itself, more than developing the piece itself.
What music2work2 does is let me perceive my work differently and tangibly calms the pressure jitters. Its particular sounds and fluidity allows me to relax into my work and not fight it.
How does it work?
While we may not understand all the neurological reasons why certain sounds do certain things to our brains, we do know the power of music. Music2work2 allows you to focus on what you need to produce, to smooth out some of those bumps in your mind.
Give music2work2 a try, let it protect you from the noise within you and around you; and access the parts of your brain that already knows what to say and how to say it.
