In one of my previous job I was earning £500 per day + VAT. That's £600 per day, that's $800 per day, that's $100 per hour.
Too bad my happiness level were not there and could not sustain it.
The moment you are at $100 level, your perception about time and money shifts and you evaluate things as "how many days of work".
How about going 10x? How to reach $1000 per hour level? Lets go exponential...

Criteria[edit | edit source]
Sleep[edit | edit source]
Rather than intoxicating myself with caffeine I would to have opportunity to take a nap. Designated sleep area. No more hiding in disables toilet (the only place that is private and big enough to lie down). Actually it wasn't that convenient either - noise from corridor and elevators was not cool.
It is already happening: https://www.facebook.com/vincipowernap/
Outdoor[edit | edit source]
Unless air conditioning is pumping enhanced oxygen mixture I prefer fresh air. Happy to conduct various experiments with enhanced oxygen levels or carrying my own oxygen bottle. I really need fresh air and Sun. In the UK there is not much Sun so on sunny days - I really need to be outside and I'll do the work in the evening / at night.
Standing desk[edit | edit source]
Get a £5 table in IKEA - https://instagram.com/p/saLg41lUWF/
Guess what - health and safety - cannot have standing desk at my current place. That's not sustainable.
Incentives[edit | edit source]
Working as if it was last job in my life! (infinite growth potential).
For many years my priorities, incentives and driving factors were as follow:
- get paid
- learn something useful (increase market value, increase pay)
- preserve energy so I can work on my projects after hours (whether it was legal or not that's another story)
I don't want have a job like this anymore. I would rather have some incentives to work extra hard and actually make things happen.
Care to explain more? I think I was generally smart and was able to complete work in half amount of time. During first month when I was overly eager and enthusiastic I've learnt (cultural thing) that noone else give a f*** and I had to learn how to mitigate my enthusiasm. That's how big companies work - they move slowly, at a sustainable pace.
Types of jobs I can do[edit | edit source]

Sales Marketing[edit | edit source]
These are interchangeable and go side by side.
I love presenting, I love being on the stage.
But first - I need live and breathe the product - I need to be fully convinced it is the winner. Otherwise I would be lying to potential customers and lying is not cool.
Hacking[edit | edit source]
Would be nice to learn some tools.
I'm not a hacker.
I want to learn. Hopefully I'll create an opportunity in Hackbase to actually learn the thing.
Teaching workshop[edit | edit source]
Ethereum workshop: https://genesis.re/workshop/
Once upon a time I wrote a proposal for 1 day intense web developer workshop: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1hwtt3zIKEPq7uAapmJ-YX7XmwWoPyZnkWDvSg9SOu4c/edit#heading=h.jd84ydhke834
I would be happy to teach it to homeless people. The other day I wrote a blog post about economy of being homeless (that is not cool) - http://www.iamthespecialist.com/2015/11/being-homeless-is-not-cool-especially.html - and I want to help them as much as I can.

Job will always remain a job - chances of becoming wealthy are relatively low.
Chances of changing the world are relatively low.
Be a leader, not a follower.
(people I would like to work with are exceptional individuals with plenty of options and my job is to become a valuable partner to them)
