Why Are You Paid?

People have a job because they are doing what someone wants them to do and is willing to pay them to do it.

If you perform a task someone wants, then they will pay you for it.  But it may not be what your actual title is.

I met a dry cleaning cashier who is great at taking care of customer concerns – not cleaning – so she has the cashier job.   I know an artist who is good at teaching, so she is paid for her art.  I know a security guard who is paid to protect people and their possessions, so he is paid for that.  I know a salesman who is always there for his clients in service, so he is paid to do sales.

Some people are terrible at customer service but great with behind the scenes tasks.  So they keep their job because the boss needs the job done better.

What are you being paid to do?  Do it better and you will be paid for that.
