With a full-time remote job, what do you do to follow your passion?
Balancing a music passion with a full-time remote job can be challenging but rewarding. I believe dedication, time management, and prioritization are key. I usually try to find a balance between work and music. I take breaks after working hours, and then I get enough rest to record myself or to make a music piece. It's important to remember that progress takes time and consistent effort. Whether it's playing for your own enjoyment or performing for others, the love of music can bring joy and fulfillment to both your personal and professional life. I’d say, remember to enjoy the journey and keep the music playing!
What impact has it had on your overall development?
Music has had a positive impact on my overall performance in a variety of ways. As a developer, intense concentration and attention to detail are essential. And listening to music has helped me reduce distractions and increase focus. It inspires my creativity and provides a sense of motivation, increases my productivity, and improves the quality of my work. Because of music, stress, and anxiety have been a ‘NO zone’ for me, which can be common among developers due to the high-pressure nature of their work. Listening to music while working creates a positive and enjoyable work environment, which also contributes to job satisfaction and my overall well-being. I think playing an instrument or singing can enhance cognitive abilities and improve hand-eye coordination. So, incorporating music into my life has not only led to improved mental health, but also enhanced creativity, and a greater sense of well-being.
