Question: Some people believe that a person’s important element is his or her work. Without a satisfying career, life is meaningless. Agree or disagree?

Many people believe that work plays an indispensable role in a person’s life. While it is argued that work engagement can generate many values for many, I would contend that it is not the only enjoyable pursuit for human existence.

On the one hand, it is widely acknowledged that having satisfying jobs has brought about varied benefits and meanings to people. Firstly, they can have the opportunity to polish the professional expertise. Also, they can apply and even improve such acquired knowledge and practical skills as computing or negotiation through different tasks at the workplace. Secondly, a fulfilling job may provide people with a sense of financial stability and security. Without any doubts, high and stable wages and salaries have financially supported people to pay for food, accommodating, other living expenses as well as facilitating different aspects of their lives. Finally, personal relationships and the atmosphere in the workplace are extremely important for people’s well-being. Having a good manager or friendly colleagues, for example, can make a huge difference in workers’ levels of happiness and general quality of life.

On the other hand, it should be argued that working is not always lucrative and ideal choices for some people, depending upon their conditions and traits. Concerning a meaningful life, for many people, family even matters more than their careers. Without unconditional love and supports from beloveds, people can hardly overcome numerous stresses from life and work. It is argued that respect from colleagues can be a substitution for family’s love; however, it is uncertain whether they will support us when we no longer have power. Meanwhile, family members are those who always love and protect us under any circumstances. Further, for those whose financial condition is already secured, they may prefer devoting their time for other values to working. It seems to be prevailing that the affluent tend to leave their jobs, traveling, and doing whatever they are passionate about. For them, life is appealing enough to merit further exploration.

In conclusion, while it is true that having job fulfillment is beneficial to many people, it is not necessarily an enjoyable pursuit for others. Thus, solely job satisfaction is not enough for a meaningful life.
