graph with temperature affecting your productivity

As I walk through the streets of Buenos Aires, meandering nonchalantly like a fly in winter, I thought about the concept of productivity and temperature. Specifically, their correlation.

Self Slavery: How the Corporate World Was Never Meant for You

I often refer to the Corporate World as intentional self slavery.
