On your pay hike

It’s not true that an organization cannot give you a good pay hike.

Your organization may yell about bad economy or missed deadlines and say that you need to lower your pay-hike expectations.

You don’t need to.

Instead, you need to increase your output. If organizations don’t think they should give you a good pay hike, it’s because you’re not producing enough output for the salary you’re taking home.

Your organization has hired you by making a choice. You have selected a job because you also have made a choice.

Then why play small with your output? And your pay hike??
