How do you get in the zone during the workweek?

My favorite way to focus and get down to business is by putting on my favorite music — this is especially helpful when I'm working from home.

Rather than sitting alone at my desk with my headphones on, I play the music out loud through a Bluetooth speaker. This creates an ambient mood that allows me to be my most productive.
