    We all know the fable of the Grasshopper and the Ant. The grasshopper spends all his summer partying while the ant toils to store up for winter.

People are different in many ways —in their values, their work ethic, their talent, their choices, etc. Why is it that we expect them to get the same results? People get paid for the amount of work they decide to put in and what they choose to do.

Executives bring in enough to justify their cost, If we go back to my first example of the grasshopper and the ant the concept is simple. Each person that works in a company or anyplace has different ways of producing their cost and wage. We have the ability to choose to be the grasshopper or the ant, but some have gone through stages.
