A good many of us aren’t satisfied with their annual income and would like it to be a little (or a lot) higher. More specifically, we wish that we were being paid more for the work that we do.
However, this summer I have been wowed by experts in tennis and athletics, and they have validated my personal belief of why we need to listen to people who know their subject and have an degree of expertise.
Being someone who leaves a footprint of creating or adding value is not an easy accomplishment. I'm at 'baby steps' level at best but have been encouraged by two recent encounters.
The way I work is the way I work. The values that I have are a part of what makes it my work. I can't work how somebody else does, and that is a good thing.
