Hi there Crafty Friend

First off this week… I am introducing a new feature –

Crafty Tools – Making Your Everyday Better

In this section we are going to include useful items to make your workday easier and your time away from work more enjoyable.

To kick things off, something we have been using since 2014.

Focus At Will 🙂 I love it.

So, a bit of background. Focus At Will was designed for busy people who need to get more stuff done.

They have a massive collection of music and styles, but what’s special about it is that it’s designed to help you focus.

It’s great because the music is divided into several categories, so if you like certain genres/tempos/etc, you can customize it to your ears.

‘Normal’ music doesn’t help me focus at all, as the lyrics distract me. I might start humming the song, and then three or fours songs and 15 minutes has gone by… It can really waste time.

Focus At Will eliminates all those problems. When you’re listening, it fades into the background, getting rid of distractions, and allows my productivity to flow.

Believe me, what they say is true, it works!

Even my kids use it when doing their learning, so that’s saying something 🙂

Get focused, today
