recognition, for jobs well done. So I could continue to do a great job and be proud of myself.

work record, looks good on the application for other stuff....for the employer, um, ability to probably befriend some cool employees n stuff. i don't really have an absolute reason just for service and crap cause my job isn't that fun lol.

my producing though isn't for money, its all in a passion.

Well, I like my job. I get some asshole customers every now and then, but for the most part they're cool, plus I like the people I work with.

I do it cuz I like to see everone flourish. If you put in effort then good thing will come your way. I dont want to see my father or any of my employers to go under. Respect is a wonderful thing nothing like a compliment that you have done a good job. Nothing beats earning the respect of your peers and proving to them and your self that you can do the task at hand.

Actually, I work at this kiddie amusement park, but basically I make the same amount of money as someone at McDonald's.

Um, I've never really had to worry about employers. "Clients and customers," I guess, but that's a little different -- it's like having dozens of pissed-off bosses. (I kid.) :wink:

Seriously, the only thing that should motivate anyone to do better work is that work is a tool for self-betterment. Work is like prayer -- it's ultimately a dialog with yourself, your community, and those higher forces of the universe.

You should do good work, because it's the right thing to do, and makes you feel good about yourself and your accomplishments, and hence, improves your place in the great scheme of things.

Of course, this is a little harder, in this post-industrial, tertiary, economy, but in principle, it's still the same...

I guess the bottom line is, that if someone doesn't find what they're doing interesting and important enough to take pride in, and use as tool for self-betterment -- instead of as a tool to simply make money in order to party and blow off steam because they hate their job -- then it just might be just conceivably possible that they need to find a different job.

The selection of a job is important because you spend a lot of your time at work, and if work does not make you better, as an individual, then it does the opposite, which can't be at all good...

But, all that's just babble, so don't take it seriously, unless it strikes some kind of chord, and if it does, then you've probably already thought of this... :wink:

PS: I might also add, that most of the really successful people (money-wise), that I've ever known, don't do it for the money. They do it for the game, and the enjoyment of what they do, and money is just a byproduct that sort of builds up and creates it's own problems, and possibilities...

lol, when I clicked into this thread I thought, "nothing, I only work hard for money"... and I really do work my ass off just to show the boss that I'm good for the money and deserve a raise (sooner or later). But now that I think about it I do work hard for respect and the feeling I get from doing a good job and helping the company...

For me, it's liking the job I'm doing. And, as so many have said, being recognised for a job well done. :laugh:

Pride and a sense of achievement

I don't have an employer but I try to do everything I do 110%. I take pride in all aspects of life and will try to teach my children well.

Nothing, I want to not work for anyone, but if someone treats me well I will do a good, buts its all just another step towards my goal... not working :smile:.

At least at a job thats completly inane.

Somehow I dont feel that if I had a home business and wrote books etc, that wouldnt make a lazy person , in fact I think it takes more motivation to follow something you belive then to just , work to get by.

Fuck the service industry :smile:

the one thing that motivates me to do a better job is that someday, somehow, i will not be working at this job ever again.

my main motivation is to try to get out of work early everday.  so i work real hard.  i dont care if i get payed less, i just want to leave.

i hate work :frown:

I like a kind, personal word from the boss every now and then to show that he notices what I've been doing and approves.
