If you bring this type of mentality to work, then I feel sorry for you.
No passion, no desire. Just show up and get paid.
If you think like this, then you can’t be surprised when the only thing you get from your boss is your weekly pay.
How can you expect to earn respect, more responsibility or better work conditions when the only thing you give to the job is your time each day, and all you really care about is the money?
How can you expect to earn more, when your attitude is to do the job as instructed? If you do what the job description asks, then they only have to pay you to do what the contract says.
Worse yet, you’re giving away your time for awfully cheap.
You could work some where you’ll enjoy working, where you won’t have an attitude of A Day’s Work for A Day’s Pay and feel like your time is being used well; where you’re part of something bigger. A place where you’ll bring more to the work each day because you’re excited and passionate.
Or you can sell yourself out to the lowest bidder because you need to buy more things.
The choice is yours.
