It pays to be different

People complain about athletes, Hollywood actors, and CEOs making a lot of money. But their level of expertise and professionalism are scarce.

You have to have unique skills and meet market demand to get paid big. The majority of us make less because we're replicable and fungible; there's always another person with the same skills. But that doesn't mean the rest of us are just invisible cogs working the system.

Everyone is different. Everyone has one unique skill that no one else has. You may not get paid for it but it makes you stand out from the pack of normals.

Rarely does a unique skill convert into a business opportunity. But that's art, it's always ahead of demand. You shouldn't have to explain your work anyway. The day people get it is the day you give in.

In the meantime, enjoy the freedom to create whatever you want in anonymity. It's the lemmings that are forgotten.
