What I have also found to work very well, both for myself and employers, is to commit to less time than would be typical in a traditional full time environment. For example, when I commit to working about 10 days per month I really feel a sense of relaxed creativity, I avoid rushing and creating errors, and I can work when I am physically and mentally most comfortale. For the employer they get the added benefit that really they are getting a lot more than 10 days because as a dev I often find the real problem solving getting done on solitary walks, in the shower, or when relaxing and browsing the web for advice and techniques.
