An employee from the matches company Swan, saw an opportunity to save money for the company and also to make some money for himself. He approached management and said: “If I can show you a way for you to save millions of dollars and it works, would you give a portion of the saving?” The company said “Yes”. So he organized a meeting with the company’s management and his lawyer and introduced his idea. He told them: “you’re spending a lot of money by putting the sandpaper on both sides of the box of matches, put it only on one side.” This simple idea saved the company millions over the years and helped this employee raised his salary beyond his wildest imagination.
As you can see it doesn't take a genius, but it takes an open mind to new possibilities. It would have been easy for anyone else to just dismiss the ideas ( I assure that millions of employees from all over the world have had similar or better ideas) and just continue working with a sigh and a resignation quasi consolation excuse: "they'll never listen to me." But not for this Swan employee. He saw the opportunity and took it fast and best of all protected himself. Always protect yourself.
How can you find ideas?! My friend, they're all over the place and they're free. There's an amazing book, you should get it. Its title: A Technique For producing Ideas, By James Webb Young.
You know your work better than me, better than anyone. Use it. Turn the tables on your employer, use their resources to raise your own salary.
I wish that for you from the bottom of my heart, if money is important to you. If it's not, make more money anyways and then give it away!
There you have it my friend! Good Luck!
