“Your pay raise becomes effective when you do”

"Note left in employe’s pay envelope; ‘Your pay raise becomes effective when you do’” was cited in a 1967 newspaper. The origin is unknown.

“Your pay raise becomes effective when you do” has been popularized since at least 2010 by motivational speaker and author Orrin Woodward.


12 October 1967, Navajo Times (Window Rock, AZ), “Along the Navajo Trail, Moccasin Grapevine” by Dick Hardwick, pg. 2, col. 2:
Note left in employe’s pay envelope; “Your pay raise becomes effective when you do.”

“Hunger is the driving force behind any significant success. The real foundation of all leadership is being a hungry student.  It’s more than just showing up.  In your own business, your pay raise becomes effective when you do.”

Many of you have heard the old saying, “Your pay raise becomes effective the day you do.” Many are caught in a trap they can’t get out of with little or no hope for increased wages to put them into the elite categories of wealth.
