Getting into a flow when working is a little like running... At first, pounding the pavements can feel tough, every part of your body willing you stop. And then, without noticing, you get into ‘the zone’, you’re running but you don’t really notice. It’s as if you’ve reached a truly meditative state, as if your body and brain are simultaneously working together but also apart.
Just like running, you can also get into ‘the zone’ when you’re working, and music is your ticket to this altered state where you can truly concentrate and get good work done.
