What would you like to do?
External things that keep me motivated at work
  1. Open Source being officially part of the job, not just an "after job fun" instead of spending time with the family.
  2. Colleagues one can learn from, not those one needs to clean up after.
  3. Money matters. Only a stupid person can think that money doesn't matter in our capitalistic society. This also includes social security, medical ensurance and any other expenses. I am not mercantile, no.
  4. Soft deadlines. Having time to do things right.
  5. No pressure in being at time every day in the office. We all got our issues.
  6. Workout during working hours. Possibility to go quickly for a run or to the gym.
  7. Office is optional. I prefer to work from any location I want. Sometimes being in the office is nice though.
  8. Good sitting conditions: good chairs, gym ball, stay desk, sofas.
  9. Relaxation room or nap room.
  10. Speciality Coffee.

In this order.
