Comment on the following statement:
|The most important thing in life is work.|
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
Some people think that the most important thing in life is work, whereas others disagree.
I think that there’s much more in life than work. First of all, no matter how good one’s job is, one won’t be happy without love or a family. Second, one can be driven by a hobby or have a personal goal in sports. One also would definitely prefer to spend one’s life traveling if he or she had enough money to do so.
At the same time there’re people who believe that there’s nothing more important than work. Work provides financial security and if one has a family one can’t afford to not have it. Work can bring fulfillment and one would enjoy his or her success in it.
In my opinion these people have a point. Surely, one can find fulfillment in work and obviously there’s not a lot one can do without money. However, I believe that nowadays there’re many ways how people can earn money. They can set up their own business and not have to spend much time on it. Or they can work online occasionally while spending most of their time on the things they really like. As soon as the money problem is solved, work doesn’t have to be too important.
In conclusion, I'd like to say that although work is important, it’s not the most important thing in life. The most important thing is for us to be as happy as we can be. For some it can be work, for others it could be their hobbies and dreams. The path to happiness is different for everybody.
