Imagine a culture where every single company paid you based in your actual results. If you went hard and created a lot of improvement that day or that month, you were Compensated properly. Unfortunately this is not how a lot of companies operate. If you slack off or bust your ass you are generally paid the exact same amount, unless you have an advanced degree.
I’d advice myself and all of you to make sure that you do whatever it takes to work for yourself orna company that values your output. Often times we get shortchanged, and don’t make any adjustments. Yes we have to eat and pay for expenses, but you might still deserve to live the life you desire. Get involved in a working culture that truly appreciates what you bring to the table.
