If you’re new to my community, a warm welcome to you! I’m so happy you’ve decided to join us!
This is getting to be a habit! For some reason I always wake up around 4 a.m. on Wednesday mornings. Maybe this will be the morning I get your newsletter finished before noon!
But right now I’m just sitting here getting things organized, drinking coffee and listening to Spotify. I do love listening to music when I work. How about you? Do you listen to anything while you work, or are you someone who needs silence to create?
But speaking of music, if you’ve been around awhile, you might remember that my good gamer chair broke just before Christmas and it took ages to get the part to fix it. Well… we think we finally figured out why it broke…
Yep, I have a really hard time sitting still when the tunes are blaring. Sometimes I use the standing desk and that’s even worse because I can’t stand still either.
I don’t usually do articles on Wednesdays since the roundup gets so long, but I’m in a writing mood this morning so…
Today’s Read: Music and Productivity
I’ve been musical all my life. My dad was a musician and a piano teacher, and I started playing the piano when I was about 3 years old. He was always convinced that there was a direct relationship between the music that you listen to and how productive and/or creative you are at any given moment.
And the older I get, the more inclined I am to agree with him.
In fact, there is a body of research that shows how music can provide many benefits to your brain and overall cardiovascular health. It can increase your blood flow, making it easier to concentrate and relax. Increased blood flow protects your brain from memory loss, allows you to de-stress, and reduces inflammation that can damage your body’s healthy cells over time.
Music even works the other way around for high blood pressure due to illness or stress. The key to music and productivity is that it makes you happier. It is creating a positive spiraling effect throughout your day.
Here are just a few ways that music can impact your productivity:
• it can boost your performance and accuracy.
• it can Improve your focus, motivation, and inspiration.
• it releases dopamine and improves your mood.
• it stimulates your brain and improves your energy levels.
Music can be incredibly beneficial, however, too much of it (can you really have too much music?) or choosing the wrong tunes can be a negative when it comes to working and listening at the same time.
Here are a few things to think about when choosing music to work to:
Tip #1 – Choose the right songs for the job
Find the tunes that are right for you and the work you are doing. Songs that are too slow can slow down your work pace or even make you need a nap. If they’re too fast it’s entirely possible you’ll be like me and start dancing in your chair.
Tip #2 – Be mindful of what needs to get done
Unfortunately, some tasks will require your complete and undivided attention to do properly. Be mindful of the tasks on your list and whether or not music will help or hinder you doing them.
Tip #3 – Pay attention when it’s not working
When it comes to music and work, it really only works if you like what you’re listening to. I go back and forth between country, jazz, and classical depending on what I’m doing and the mood I’m in. This morning it’s country, and in the middle of typing this up I put the standing desk up so I could move and type at the same time.
Tip #4 – Make sure it makes you happy
While it may not feel like it, the music is actually what’s making you productive. The happier you are, the more productive you will be. Which is why it’s so important to pick the right song and keep it personal. If it doesn’t make you happy, it will most likely have the opposite effect.
As you can see, as long as you pick the right music, it can lead to happier and more productive days. Next time you get to work, put on your favourite playlist and see just how much faster you get things done.
And now, here’s the rest of your roundup for today…

Author Assignment of Copyright from Attorney Bob Silber
Did you know that even when you pay someone to create content for you, that unless you legally have them transfer the copyright to you, they keep the copyright even though you paid for the content? I didn’t know that either, but I do now. And I’m doing something about it.
One of the people I’ve been privileged to get to know over the last year is Dr. Bob Silber. He has created an Author Assignment of Copyright form which is the copyright transfer legal document that copyright law requires for you to transfer ownership rights to yourself from the author.
Bob Silber knows what he’s talking about. He is a trial attorney with over 40 years’ experience practicing in all State and Federal courts. He’s also a former adjunct professor teaching business, Intellectual property and Internet law at Florida Atlantic University and has been an invited speaker at major Internet marketing conferences throughout the country and has sponsored his own conferences, seminars and workshops, providing attendees with the latest legal developments for operating their online businesses.
If you do nothing else, read the sales page and understand why this is so important.

A Note About Bonuses:
There are so many products this week that I wanted to create bonuses for and I just don’t have time to create separate bonuses for every product. So here’s what I’m doing. I’m putting together a page of bonuses – some are new, some have been previously used as bonuses for products you might have missed, or for events you didn’t take part in. Either way, there will be a mix of templates, papers, digital stationery, and coloring pages. I will have the page put together this afternoon with all your choices and for all the products except the Tools for Motivation one, I’ll put a PDF in your download area with instructions on how to claim your bonuses. For Tools for Motivation, you’ll have to email me your receipts because they don’t have an automated bonus delivery option.
These are the products that qualify for bonuses:
Tools for Motivation – Your Next Great Idea PLR
A Cup of Zen – 30 Days of Empowerment Art Journal
Amy Harrop – Easy Personalized POD
Createful Journals – Bookmark Templates

Monday Read – Tips for Intentionally Taking Time Off
Tuesday Read – Using Interval Training as a Productivity Tool
Bonus Read: The perfect number of hours to work every day? Five from Wired

And that’s it for me this morning. It still took me most of the morning to get this ready, but that’s because I ended up going back to sleep for a couple of hours in between. And then I decided to do the “choose your own bonus” thing too. I’m off to find some breakfast and then get to work putting your new bonus page together.
Have an amazing day! Create what makes your heart happy!
