Why people reward innate talent over hard work – BBC Worklife
The key is to develop the habit of creating. Preferably regularly. Reward and appreciate your subconscious and other selves for their ideas!

Or be very rich.
- Living here is very expensive.
- Pay scales are not competitive with pay scales at other, similarly-expensive areas.
- Many employers won’t hire people new to the islands until you’ve been here 3-6 months.
They’ve been burned too many times by people that came to the islands on vacation, decided they loved the islands so much they had to stay, got hired somewhere here – then went back to where they came from when our cost of living hit them. Like when their first two-weeks’ paycheck came to less than their apartment rent.

How very true! “Meets expectations” performance would net you a 3% raise (a net-pay cut vs inflation). Going “above and beyond” might get you 4-5%. Still a net pay cut.
