Would you quit if you hit the jackpot?

Debra Auerbach, Workbuzz, July 17, 2014, asks if you would tell your boss to take your job and shove it--should you hit the lottery or come into money?

More than half--51%--of workers asked this said they could continue to work.

Gosh--is there more to life than money? Apparently.

77 percent said they'd be bored if they did  not work.
76% said work gives them a feeling of accomplishment.
42% wanted even more money than the winnings.
And 23% said they would miss their coworkers.

Still, only 30% would stay in their present job. The rest would pursue a passion. Only 15% of workers say they are in their dream job.

Also--that "shove it" approach? Most said they would quit respectfully.

31% would give two weeks notice
13% would resign that day--no notice.
3% would tell off the boss.
And 2% would not show the next day, no notice.

It's your karma--proceed wisely.
