The productivity tool of the week is Brain.fm - a subscription service that provides functional music that improves focus. I’ve been using Brain.fm for a couple months now and I’ve been really impressed with the results. I use it on my laptop but there’s an app you can download too.
In addition to being effective, Brain.fm is simple and easy to use. In the web dashboard, you can select the type of music you want to listen to - Focus, Relax, or Sleep - and just go.
There’s also a library if you want to select a particular song.
Full disclosure, after using Brain.fm for a few days I reached out to their COO, Chandler Perog, and Rize has become an affiliate partner. We’re hoping to collaborate more with Brain.fm and other great productivity-focused companies in the future.
Macgill Davis is cofounder of Rize, a time tracker that improves focus and builds better work habits.
