Why Do You Work?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Do you have a job? If you do, you likely wake up early every morning, gulp down breakfast, and go to work. At work, you try to be the best employee that you can be. You do your job and focus on the check that you will get when payday arrives. You have plans for your paycheck and plans for yourself. People work for many different reasons.

Are you a teacher? If you are, you strive to help students learn. There are certain concepts that students are supposed to learn at certain grade levels. You want your students to learn those concepts so that they can be prepared to go on to the next grade level.

Are you a reporter? Your goal every day is to report the news. You might cover the opening of a new grocery store. You might write a story on the casting call that is being held for an upcoming movie. People need to know what is going on. Your news stories will keep them in the know. By knowing what is going on, they can plan their day. They can also work out their goals for the coming weeks and months.

Do you work as a barista? If you do, you arrive at work early, put on an apron, and take people's coffee orders. Then you fix up what they want, take their payment, hand them their order, and send them on their way.

One reason people work is to pay their bills. They need the necessities, like water and electricity. They also want the niceties, like cable or satellite service. They have to pay their bills in order to have these things. They need money to pay their bills. This money comes from a job. While money is the most common reason that people work, it is not the only reason, however.

Another reason that people work is to build their resume. Perhaps they need more work experience in order to qualify for a position that they are interested in. They may also be high school students who are applying for scholarships. Scholarship committees are interested in well-rounded students who have learned to manage their time. Holding a job requires good time management in order for the student to do well at work and at school.

Perhaps one of the main reasons that people work, however, is purpose. Purpose is why many people often continue working after they have retired. They need a reason to get up in the morning. They need to be needed. Work gives them that purpose.
