View Full Version : Poll: The rewards of work?

2nd November 2002, 01:44 AM
When you work, what is the one thing you look foward to the most?
Is it...
-satisfaction (the feeling that you've done a good deed)
-meeting new people
-knowledge and experience
-enjoyment in doing work
-fame (if you are a politician, club manager, or celebrity)
-any other?
Now you may say I'm a greedy boy, but what I look forward to is the money. I'm being really honest.

It may seem obvious what most people will answer, but I figured that maybe some interesting responses may come up.

Lessee...at first, I thought money. Because money is good. Not to mention with money I can buy most other things.
But then after I thought a bit, I came to the conclusion that my reward of work is that...it's done! I mean, if it's some big hulking nasty bit of work that you dread doing, when you're done, you don't have to worry about it any more. This could branch off of the good deed selection, but I think it's more about my own selfish wants. :)

Oh, and when it's done...nobody will yell at me about doing it.

2 things for me mainly..

1. Money - c'mon, it has to be money :) I work for money...I work to provide for my family in years to come. I work to spend money on things I can enjoy or things I need.

2. Knowledge/learning new things - in College for example, I'm learning things all the time and I feel that that is really important part of being in college for me. I mean, I could just not take interest in anything, learn it, revise it, pass the tests, and get a degree. Although, I actually enjoy learning new things and becoming more knowledgable.

Er, well, it has to be money, cos I've got my bills to pay, etc. Unfortunately, I don't get any perks and get very taken for granted. If I didn't have to go to work, I wouldn't. I'd love to stay at home and do what I wanted to do and look after millions of animals, have time for creative pursuits, etc.

Um...all apply to me but fame. I guess the number one thing I look forward to when working is being beside my fiancÚ (she works with me).

For me, the rewards are tangible (i.e, money) and intangible (i.e., knowing I've done a good job and being proud of myself). I don't often get to meet new people at my job but I love what I do and I'm good at it.

Hmm. . .come to think of it, do like the feeling of getting a good day's work in. The good sense of satisfaction is nice.

And of course.....money--that's what I want. ;)

I'll be honest, the only reason I ever work at all is the pursuit of money, I'm a total materialist, and a lazy one at that. The only way you can get me to work is by major financial incentives, I'm the closest to Ranma's Nabiki as you can get when it comes to cash.... ^_^;;;;;

Money. Honestly, if I wasn't being paid I wouldn't work, so I'm in it all for the money. Although now I work at the Arena some times I look forward to seeing parts of the events that are on there, they do some cool concerts and stuff.
