Increase your own income

Whoa! Saw this news splattered on the Star newspaper front page saying, "Big Pay Hike". Wish it was so. Mine was just a meagre 0.9% increase in comparison against the benchmark done by Robert Walters Global Salary Survey for 2011. Although their survey indicated a sharp increase of 5% to 30% increase for many of the professionals, looking at my category I'm nowhere near that increase nor earning that income range. Perhaps some would say I should be working harder or carry the balls of my superior more or whatever. Well I've been working for a very long time and I found I like to call the shots to get things done. So working for someone else does curb my ability on my decision making.
