Stay offline until noon — or later.

The idea is simple : avoid distraction and gain focus.

People are distracted because they make it easy.

Put more steps between you and distraction.

Set your phone in flight mode and hide it at the top of a furniture, in the room you use the less.

I do that with my modem too when I shut down at 8pm. Everyday. And I don’t have mobile Internet on my phone. I can only go online via Wi-Fi.

If that’s not enough, make it even more difficult : set a long and complicated Wi-Fi…


My intention with Medium is to share short, simple and powerful ideas about making music and creativity in general. These are reminders to myself and maybe you will find it useful too.

Make music after sport. And exercise much preferably outdoor.

Make music after a two-hour hike, or after a few minutes of jumping rope (alternating one minute of jumping with one minute of rest).

Choose a physical activity that you enjoy, and according to the time you got and your environment. Get creative and playful, there are many ways to move and so stimulate different parts of your brain…
