Working with or without environmental noise? That is the question.

Turn The Clock Back!

Found the secret of working in noisy spaces, thinking it to be a bonus. So managed to think and type in a noisy coffee shop, staff room or with TV on on the background. This skill developed of necessity when too much multi-tasking was going on: degree, work, parenting, entertainment – all in parallel.

However, there has been fallout from this ability. I can no longer work in silence. And, doing doctoral research where difficult theories form the foundation of my studies so need to dig deep to understand the concepts. Going to try this week to focus in total silence for short periods, turning the clock back to study-days of youth and see if I can speed read and then then write accompanied by noise. Reverse engineering?
