You're right. It depends on the person whether good weather distracts you, but I think most people are like me.@AgainstAllOdds, that's why I work in the early morning. You take care of stuff in the morning and then can spend the rest of the day enjoying great weather. It depends solely on you whether good weather distracts you or not. Back in February I traveled to a warm and sunny place. I continued waking up early and working in the morning and my productivity didn't decrease. I got the work done and then spent the rest of the day doing fun stuff outside. It's just a matter of setting the right routine.
Here's a map of the world in terms of GDP per capita:
Notice how the closer a country is to the equator, the worse their economy is. The further away it is from the equator (good weather), the better they are economically. There's a direct correlation, and my theory is that this correlation trickles down to the individual.
When you have less distractions (beaches, perfect weather, etc.), then you're more likely to get things done. That's just a fact.
The problem with that thinking though is that other factors are more important for success. Self-esteem for example is highly correlated to success, so if you're living in a place with bad weather, and constantly depressed, then moving to a (distraction filled) warm place could be a positive.
I think sunny climates make most people happier, but as entrepreneurs, it's not necessarily so. There's an increase in distractions, therefore decrease in productivity, and decrease in entrepreneurial happiness.
Also it should be noted that there's a difference between living somewhere and just traveling there.
