Coping with noise in the workplace

Coping with noise in the workplace

There are times that noise interrupts your concentration and flow. I believe many people tried different ways to avoid the noise. Roger Johansson at 456 Berea Street has created an article on discussing a way to cancel the noise through headphone and encourage people to suggest their ways to kill of noises. There are couple of interesting discussions going on there. Here is the snippet of the article:

Many offices today are really bad with regard to background noise. What is worse is that there isn’t a whole lot you can do about much of that noise (provided you don’t want it) unless you have the luxury of having a room of your own. Kind of like the old days when smoking was allowed in offices – there was no getting away from it for the non-smokers.

Common sources of office noise include:

  • Phones ringing, and ringing, and ringing. By the way – whoever invented ringtone melodies for mobile phones, I’d like to have a word with you in private.
  • People yelling to each other from one end of the office to the other instead of moving closer so they can talk.

Book summary: A Technique for Producing Ideas

Kirby Ferguson has written a summary for the book A Technique for Producing Ideas. Generating good idea is a fine art, if you have mastered it you will be successful in many fields. The author of the book, James Young, describes five steps on a technique of combining old elements together:

  • Gather new material, both specific and general.
  • The Mental Digestive Process
  • Drop it
  • Poof, the idea appears
  • Work it

Kirby also brought out his own thoughts – drop down every ideas you have in mind – You mind is not always as good as paper and sometimes it only stays for a short period of time. After you’ve dropped your ideas into your notepad, you will also have extra chances of linking and modifying your ideas together.
