Work as a Part of Life
Some people regard work as the goal of life and spare no pains to pursue a fulfilling career. Others regard work as a means to achieve the value of life, emphasizing the meaning and significance of life itself. I think work is just a part of one’s life. To work means to live, and to live must involves work.
First, when one works, he also lives. There is not a period of time when one is only working but not living. Therefore when one works hard and feels happy about his achievements, he is also living fruitfully. There is no need to say that he just "lives to work". Second, it is impossible to imagine a life without work. Marx once said that work is the basic need of the human race. Work is not only a breadwinning process, but is also a process of exploring the unknown world, creating beauty, providing help, expressing love, friendship and care. Anyone would hate a life without work, and I think only those who work well enjoy their life best. To conclude, I am firmly convinced’ that work is a part of life. So enjoy your work, for when you make progress and have fun in your work, you are also enjoying your life.
