    There's a reason that many companies have explicit rules that prohibit employees from discussing their salaries.

    I'll spare the details, but I'll just share that when I discussed compensation with a male (African American) colleague, I went into my self-professed company vice president and demanded and equal salary. I got a significant increase, but still didn't earn as much as he did. We both realized that the younger and less experienced white guy was almost certainly earning more than we were.

    We both ended up moving on.

    So if you get hit by a bus tonight, would you be satisfied with how you spent today, your last day on earth? Live like tomorrow is never guaranteed, because it's not. -- Me.
