Music may help productivityI was at a client site yesterday to close the books for the month. The process is fairly singular in nature as I don't require much interaction with staff but do work quite a bit with the supporting documents.
I decided to bring along an Ipod to find out if productivity increased, remained the same or decreased as I completed the task at hand. Do you know what happened? I finished faster than previous closes.
Perhaps it was a placebo effect but in this instance, music increased productivity.
I might try incorporating more of music when I work on things which require isolation and tedious tasks, as long as productivity increases of course.
I am a CPA in San Antonio and provide bookkeeping, payroll, taxes and more. We offer a free initial visit and look forward to serving your business needs.
