1. Your immediate working environment matters

At first I was skeptical about this advise I was reading on different posts and meetings. I have always been able to work from anywhere. But in the end, I always had a working office with my own desk. Kind of like a home base. So I could easily adapt anywhere else, but I had my professional home base and my personal home.

No, you will not end these 3 months with a brand new million dollar app, a ripped body and tanned. And you know what? It is okay!

And maybe this project will never interact with the mass but I got to organize an alpha test with some of my friends and we had fun.
