You feel guilty due to very high pay at work – what to do?

Say, you are being paid piece rate on work you do as a contractor. However your employer set up things in such a way that you are very productive. You feel that you are being overpaid and feel guilty about this.

What to do?

Do not suggest a reduction of your piece rate.

Instead of taking less from your employer, give your employer more.

Invest time at higher quality work even if it slows you down a bit. Do more work on your pieces. Look for ways to optimize even more the workflow in which you are a part. Train other workers to be more productive.

I am deaf since birth. I played with big computers which eat punched cards and spew out printouts since age 12. Ever since they became available, I work and play with desktop size computers which eat keyboard keypresses and spew out display pixels. Among other things, I developed software which helped the deaf in Israel use the telephone network, by means of home computers equipped with modems. Several years later, I developed Hebrew localizations for some cellular phones, which helped the deaf in Israel utilize the cellular phone networks. I am interested in entrepreneurship, Science Fiction and making the world more accessible to people with disabilities.
