“Music may be the activity that prepared our pre-human ancestors for speech communication and for the very cognitive, representational flexibility necessary to become humans.”
Daniel J. Levitin, This Is Your Brain on Music: The Science of a Human Obsession

“The neurologist and writer Oliver Sacks goes one further: If you’re working on two completely separate projects, dedicate one desk or table or section of the house for each. Just stepping into a different space hits the reset”

“As the old saying goes, a man with one watch always knows what time it is; a man with two watches is never sure.”
