I’ve been focused on my annual strategizing and planning for the last couple weeks. That entails a fair amount of pouring over plans, customer details, upcoming travel, targets, forecasts, goals, etc. I basically just lock myself in the office and focus.
I found a great little music service that has served as the background noise for this year’s effort. It’s called Pandora and is completely free and legal. It also has no DJs or commercials… just your favorite kinds of music.
Apparently, these folks have mapped out the music genome much like the geneticists working on the human genome project. You simply type in a favorite artist or song and Pandora will build you a custom radio station featuring songs from all artists that fit that branch of the music family tree.
I’ve been enjoying my custom Merle-Haggard-ish channel this evening. Maybe tomorrow I’ll be in the mood for Coldplay, Sting, or Rusted Root.
