However it's up to us to make the effort, stop making excuses, and start getting things done.


Yes, indeed. For over 30 years now I've said (paraphrased) "Losers have excuses, winners have solutions."

Thanks for the reminder - much needed today.

I have always believed that it was up to me to find ways to add value - especially if I expected to have added compensation. I feel that I am pretty well compensated for the skill set I bring - not overpaid, but not underpaid either.

At this point, I'm not driven by finding ways to increase my compensation but I am still very motivated to make sure that I provide the value for which I am paid.

I want to be remembered (when I retire happily) as someone who cared deeply about the quality of their work.

Thanks for the reminder - it is me who creates me. The environment can produce tools/opportunities to allow me to shape me, but ultimately I have to take responsibility for who and what I am today.
