No money, no honey! But if you only work for money, it would be quite boring. For me, work is something i must do to get accepted by the society. I am always ewarded by accomplishment which really worth the effort. I think the most important things is are you live for work or work for life.

Money is basic requirment of my life, I am not want to say that money is basic requirment, but if you have money can can fulfill your basic requirment. And I you have more and more mony can can lives as more comfertable and luxeries life. thats why all those work hard.

I think one purpose for people to work is to make money,another purpose is to join the society ,to communicate with people.sometimes money decides  the kind of job .if we work not for money we can do many things we want to do .but for money we have to do the job we don't like.so one of my dream is to do what i want to do someday

Good morning,

I work, because

- it is my education, to be not lazy

- I need to be independent from my partner and the state system

- I had learned a lot at school, university and during my Life, why not use it? It would be a wasting.

- if I would not work, normally I would stay at home during the day. No communication. social life – terrible.

- no work – no money.

- as I was young, I decided that my hobby – writing – should be my job. So I did erverything what was needed, to realize that. My job is my passion.

I could go on and on … There are a lots of reasons.

Have a nice day all over the world.

Bravo Tabetha !! Your opinion is good and i’m totally agree with you . All people in the world need work. No work we haven’t many things else . I think we work to know the meaning of our life .Am i right ?

    to me ,money is ok to be enough,but if i was given extra money i may be joyful too,u know with money we can do many things,but it doesnot mean everything to me.

   i am a lazy person and once dreaming of staying at home but having enough money to use,but it is just a dream.i sometimes think about the meaning of living,and doing job comes as an essential part,we must work for ourselves and for our loved ones ,we need to work to fullfil ourselves and make change of our life.

  ok,it is just  my opinion.wish every one a happy day!

Hello Crystal,

if it is the meaning, the reason of our life, I don´t know. But it is a big part, and it is not the worth part of it, isn´t it? A good combination of work, to earn money, and to have time, to be lazy and to spend the earned money – that´s it :- )

I hope, you all have a job and also enough time to share with your family.

Have a nice day all over the world.

as far as i m concerned i work to be free in my life.

it s good to work to have money but it s better when you have passion on what you re doing.

i worked in order to be respect in our new society and in anyone life you could not have success without working hard.

i like money and have a good life i want to be able to satisfy my needs work hard is the only key

thanks everybody and sorry for my english
