Suppose you are a month away from a product deadline. If you meet the deadline you get a $25,000 bonus. What would be your ideal work environment to guarantee you get the $25,000? Include as much detail as possible: location, lighting, temperature, etc.

Let me work from home. I am way more productive from home.

I presume the work environment would have to cost less than $25000 to make it worthwhile. It would have to take less than a month to find, develop, or build it too. Travel to and from that environment is another factor. Also need to account for the time necessary to haggle for a larger bonus once the work is 92% done and key elements only I understand are yet to be delivered...

Make visible what, without you, might perhaps never have been seen.

High quality, round-the-clock daycare, in somebody else's house. Give me that, and there ain't nothing I can't do.
