People work because they need money to live. What are some other reasons that people work. Use examples and details to support your opinion
In one way or another, all people around the world work for the ultimate purpose of seeking a better life. It is widely believed that people work solely for money. However, it is only one of the numerous important purposes of working, and oftentimes there is a lot of benefits that people obtain from working without even consciously realizing them. Nowadays, except for money, people still work for many reasons, including to understand and fulfill their responsibilities in society, to avoid wastefulness, and to keep their minds active.
For many people, the biggest benefit of working lies in a priceless lesson of responsibility. Through working, people learn how to be responsible, first to themselves, then to their families and the society. If working is all about money, why even kids from well-off families, Bill Gate’s for example, bother going to work even though they are guaranteed a wealthy future life whatsoever? It is because they want to be responsible for their own lives, to live on their labor, not on their parents’ fortune. Next, working gives them a strong sense of responsibility for their family and society. Family life is happiest when all members share family work and together contribute to make it a more comfortable and harmonious life. Likewise, a country is most prosperous when every citizen contributes their part to make it thrive.
Another important reason that makes people look for job is to understand the importance of producing property and avoid wastefulness. As a matter of fact, not working leads to indolence; indolence facilitates spending and extravagance. People who don’t work at all have nothing to keep themselves busy, hence often indulge in expensive entertainment, lavish shopping, and so on. Understanding this fact, many people, even privileged ones, choose to work to stay away from wastefulness, and to be helpful. In short, working, or living on what they created teaches them not only the value of labor and property, but also the importance of frugality and economy.
Last but not least, to work is to keep us active and in good shape. Working is about constantly learning and understanding things around us. When we stop working, we spend less time thinking and pondering about things that so far have deeply affected our lives. Soon knowledge is eroded, and our brains become idle and self-indulgent. As time goes on, we gradually lose concern about everything except ourselves. To prevent this from happening, some people, especially the old, still learn and work in various ways even though they have retired. As for the case of a group of sixty year old men in the US I knew about through newspaper, retirement did not prevent them from going to college and doing farming. They said doing these things made them remain active and healthy, and going to college gave them the liveliness of a twenty five year old teenager.
To sum up, working to most people are, although difficult, still rewarding because of the great benefits it brings about. Besides earning money, people also work for many important purposes, including to be aware of their duties, to steer clear from wastefulness, and to stay lively and active. Therefore, I would advise anyone to find a suitable work for themselves because working is the best way through which they can enjoy life.
Work has been an integral part of human life since the dawn of mankind. It has given meaning to our lives, created a sense of purpose and fostered growth in human civilization. The very term “work” is an umbrella topic with a diverse array of fields under it. Some prominent reasons behind why people work are elaborated here.
Firstly, work creates a sense of purpose and provides us with a meaningful view of life. Since people spend a considerable amount of time at work, it is inevitable that he/she will associate work as an inseparable part of his/her life. Moreover, the value we create through our work becomes an intrinsic part of who we are and defines us as a person. Although, the very notion of work as a provider of meaning to life is debated hotly by self-development gurus, nevertheless, the void of meaningfulness of life in the absence of work is undeniable.
Secondly, work serves as a medium for meeting the monetary needs of a person. It not only helps a person achieve financial stability but also acts as a positive force for creating new opportunities around him/her. Which eventually benefits society as a whole. It is undeniable that human beings need money to survive. Instead of indulging in unethical activities as a means of earning, people tend to prefer work. In societies where the unemployment rate is low, the crime rate is also lower as expected.
In addition, human beings are problem-solvers per se. We want to create meaningful changes around us which we think will positively impact society and the better the lives of people around us. And this is achieved via work. Our history is inundated with examples of people like Tesla, Da Vinci, Stephen Hawking and many others who have significantly transformed our lives through their work; be it in the field of science, literature or art. The very idea of entrepreneurship is rooted in the notion of people putting thoughts into workable actions.
In conclusion, human beings are defined by the actions they take and not by the thoughts they have inside their heads. Most importantly, thoughts turned into action is essentially work. The meteoric technological advancements we are having today is largely contributed by people who have transmuted their thoughts into action, in other words, they are creating workable solutions to the dire problems of humanity.
