I sometimes create "white noise" at home to distract myself from other sounds. It is mindless stuff and does not require any thought. Late yesterday I found out that I have to write three essays that are due Monday. No problem but I am jammed today. I am jammed Sunday. I am jammed Monday. So I guess I needed to write them this morning. I am addicted to "Car Talk" so at 9 a.m. when that show was over I immediately turned off the satellite radio, the stereo, the CD player, the television (CSPAN II Book Talk) and any other noise producing appliance and started writing. In two hours I had written about 3000 words and completed my edits. I think that making my house silent probably increased my productivity by about 500%.
