      In the corporate world, there is tiny money and then there is big money. A majority of the people in the world fall in the first category. Only a minority gets to taste the latter. This is so because of a very simple construct in place: it’s not what you do, it’s how you do it. The question hasn’t been the want of will or the lack of skill. The arithmetic here is rather convoluted; so complex that only an excel sheet can hide its inaccuracies. To raise above the rest, you’ll have to prove that you are already the best. Being better won’t be enough. You are the product first and foremost. Sell hard. Sell well. Such is the intensity here, your only way forward is upward. And that’s why corporations pays you big — not for what you did but what you can do.
