This actually makes a lot of sense to me. A couple of years ago I was in a situation where I could be earning quite substantial bonuses. I had some problems in my work and personal life, and I think that the possibility of affecting my bonus was something that I think affected me subconsciously, and looking back was a factor in my worsening performance.

Nowadays there's no bonus on the table, and I do find I feel liberated as a result. Poorer but liberated.

But yeah, it's the work I do outside work outside work that gives me the autonomy and other stuff.
