Compensation strategy anecdote: "It took me all my life :)"

Pablo Picasso was in a park when a woman approached him and asked him to draw a portrait of her.

Picasso agreed and quickly sketched her. After handing the sketch to her, she was pleased with the likeness and asked how much she owed to him. Picasso replied "$5,000". The woman screamed "but it took you only five minutes". Picasso replied "No, Madam, it took me all my life!"

Same with employees. It takes us a lifetime to develop our skill sets :)
