Are you paying attention to the sounds of your commute or those in your workplace?
Maybe when you got in your car this morning you were greeted with a blast of music that was already too loud from the drive home.
Will a dribble of coffee or a muffin smudge negatively affect your business costume?
Do the sounds that permeate an office have an effect on your concentration? How about the ongoing dialog of the lives of your co-workers that you can’t help but overhear?
I ask because I really don’t know.
I’m lucky because my workplace isn’t fixed and is different more than a hundred times per year. Sure, have an office but it’s in my house and when I’m there alone it’s as silent as a tomb.
My subject has a similar story as mine. He has a small operation that’s suited to being run by himself on his own terms.
One of the things we talked about was the price that needs to be paid for regular doses of silence and solitude. We both agreed that while the price can be high, it’s worth it.
