I Got My First Raise
Today my boss confirmed my first annual merit increase!
Time to rejoice like Ross in Friends?
I wasn’t expecting a huge raise, but somehow the raise I got disappointed me. I should be happier my paycheck is increasing by $50 every two weeks, but somehow I’m not. $50 is not going to change my life. Don’t get me wrong I love that I’m earning $50 every paycheck. An increase in income is always good by me! I just don’t want to be stuck in the pool of workers who expect and/or are satisfied with a small percentage merit increase every year.
I don’t know what this means for the future. I’m not going to quit my job anytime soon. But I am going to be proactive. Seek out opportunities. Drive change.
I have already increased my 401K contribution to reflect my new raise.
Have you received your annual merit increase? What did you do with it?
