It is the last day your employer has for mailing your W-2.
You probably already received it. There is a lot of information on this form.
For now, focus on box 3, total wages before deductions.
The questions are:
- Are you satisfied with your gross income?
- Does the number reflect an increase over last year’s amount?
- Is there a noticeable increase over this year’s earnings vs. what was earned five years ago?
If the answer to any of these questions is no, it is not too late to make that New Year’s resolution that you will take the steps necessary to increase your earnings. Where do you want to go within your organization? Have you looked around to determine your marketability?
Vow that on January 31, 2018, the answer to these three questions will be YES.
Start today with a new focus, determination and mindset.
