Meet Nick Douglas, 35 years old from Brooklyn,NY.
“I make a lot of playlists at Lifehacker, where I'm a staff writer. I like to do work while listening to songs with the same structure as Ravel's "Bolero," with one musical phrase repeating and building to a crescendo. So I built a productivity playlist of those songs.”
