I'll win a lottery if I will play it and I only believe in hard work not in any lottery. I worked hard to get good education, this hard work is not only to earn money. Because I always remember what John Ruskin has said "The highest reward of one's toil is not what one gets for it but what one become by it".

To be honest it depends on the situation if I had the good knowledge and skills at that time then I would probably open a new company or link up with any good company or if I didn't have good knowledge and skills at that time then I would definitely work to improve my knowledge and skills because money doesn't give you knowledge, self satisfaction and wise (whereas it makes your mind rusty and lazy).

To be honest, It depends on the time, when I will win the lottery. If I would get the lottery after 4 or 5 years of working, when I would have good knowledge about the organizational development and way of business then I will surely leave this job and start my own business. You can apply there for HR manager.

The answer of this question depends upon the job for which you are being interviewed. For example if it is Government Job than you may say that it is due to luck and don't give me satisfaction, knowledge remains forever and blah blah but if you are a fresher particularly an MBA graduate you may say that 10 million at the beginning is a huge money, I will not be continuing with your company rather I shall be using it for planning a new business. I have already such plans in mind but due to financial constraints could not able to execute them.

May be the Panel just want to see your entrepreneurial skills.

Sir,

According to me Knowledge is the currency of this century. In my life there is no much important money which I get by lottery, but there is always value of money which I earned with my work. So my duties will always continue.

Yes, certainly. In today's world money means a lot. But for me, along with that self satisfaction stand high. And moreover our consumption pattern changes mainly with respect to permanent income, this $10 million being a temporary source of income would contribute little to my daily lifestyle.

No I would not continue working for a few reason. Life is all about experience. From the 10 million I would allocate a certain amount of money to provide myself with experiences that I could only have imagined. I would travel the world experiencing new cultures, lifestyles, activities and meeting people the world over as this would help in forming me as an individual.

I would also allocate money to generate more money through strategic investments and growing my own savings. I would also allocate a certain amount to help with the betterment of the lives of children in our country.

I would say yes because if I get money from lottery then it won't give me the satisfaction and also if I get money from my side (knowledge and hard work) then I'll try to increase it.

Yes, I will continue my work in your company, because I want my knowledge grow. I need an environment where my knowledge and experience enhance. And the $10 million lottery makes me and my family happy, but it can't grow my knowledge and skills. So, I will have to work to grow my experience and knowledge.

Of course, I continue with my work. Because while doing work we will gain knowledge automatically, by earning such huge amount of money suddenly we don't understand what to do, so by continuing with our job we may obtain higher position in job according to our knowledge by sharing with team members. By achieving higher position in job, our salary will get increased year by year which will be sufficient as a common person.

10 million lottery is nice but not good enough in the long run. May be I'd take a sabbatical and return after I run out of cash. On the other side, if I won a 100$ million lottery or higher I would definitely stop working. The purpose of work is to lead a happy and content-full life. If I have earned enough money why deprive others of the opportunity to work? All those people here who are waxing virtues of personal satisfaction and achievement are nothing but greedy, selfish folks under the guise of righteousness. Would they work for free without salary and work overtime too, for free, since they have earned enough money already? Nope. Never.

Yes Sir I will continue working in your organisation because money is temporary and work is class and permanent. Earning money is not important, earning satisfaction is more important. Having that much money feels me very happy, but this money will never give me satisfaction, because I have it by 'Luck' not by 'Hard work'. I will still work and do more hard work to make this 10 million into 100 millions. And money makes us happy. But knowledge will help us how to make money.

I would like to continue my job. Because I want to shine my brain. If I won a lottery my style may be changed but my attitude never be changed till my last breath. Because I never believe that our satisfaction and our goals need not to be changed by money. If it was changed there is no meaning to our life.

Yes of course sir I will work for the company. Winning prize in lottery is sheer luck and you don't get praised for it whereas earning money is absolute hard work for which you get regards.

Definitely I will work because my education, skills will remain unutilised and the money I got from lottery may give me a luxury life for some days but my brain in that days will be paralysed.

Yes sir, still I will continue my work. Suppose if I stopped working because of that lottery money I may enjoy it for a period of time but after that again I have to work. But at that point of time my brain may not work properly and I may become lazy.

Money which will come without our efforts may give happiness for sometime but earning money by our own will give more self satisfaction which is most important for everyone.

"Money makes a person lazy but knowledge makes a valuable person. ".

I actually will be glad to work after having enough to live my life happily. All I will have to focus on will be learning.

Merely getting profits will make a person lazy and greed to get more profits.

Moreover it will give you fame but not name my answer is YES I will work for good name by rendering my service to the society. Money will bring comfort but not satisfaction.

Yes, if I won I shall continue to my job. Because money can fulfill our needs, expectations, desires etc. But it does not teach us the manner to work, behave & to talk. In today's era money is not everything. There are so many things related to our carrier which needs our time, concentration & experience & not money.

Yes, because even though I won $10 million it comes with little efforts. It will do me lazy and it will not give me any kind of experience and in every situation I will start to find short path of earning which is not good.

Sir, I'm not here to blabber or fake you. I would like to ask the same thing to you. Will you work if you get $10M lottery? I will not because I work for money. ALthough I agree money is not the only thing in life but end of day no one can say we don't need money. Even if there is a Appraisal hike the first thing we look is How many % of hike we got. Im not saying you can sit happily in house if you get that much money of millions but I would not work with sheer enthusiasm.

I would definitely keep working because winning a lottery is down to good fortune and luck. But I won't get the adulation, respect, plaudits that comes along with a fixed job when you successfully complete an assignment.

Depends on my Industry experience sir. Anyone will leave the company and start its own. But to start new company you should have that much industrial and social experience.

So if I think I am not that much mature to start own company, I will continue for some years else I will leave you company.

If I won $10million lottery I will work in your company because I will help the poor people and I give some money to the people. I work in your company so, that my knowledge will not be decreased. Because if I won 10milliondollar from by using my knowledge I felt so happy. By lottery if I won 10million$ also I'm happy but comparing to that by using knowledge is so happy for me to get by luck.
