Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? People today spend too much time on personal enjoyment—doing things they like to do—rather than doing things they should do. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.
In this contemporary era, there is a trend among the poeple which media simply referres to it as "Hustle Culture". It's a movement that encourages people to be more productive and do more and has carried out the false promise of "Working more means more success and success leads to happiness". In my opinion, this fallacious glorifying of excess work is what forces people to do what they do not like and defines what they should do. This will eventually instigate exhaustion and losing interest in the things we used to like. Which I call "Burnout Culture". We are living in a trend-based society in which people tend to hop on every trend they see on media which I think is another form of consumerism. People keep doing what they don't like to do and is actually against their upstandings to attain things they don't really want to impress people they don't even like. This will eventually lead to depression and plummeted rate of happiness among the people. True happiness in something intrensic and unique to each individual. It is not accessible if we incessantly imitate other successful people, since what makes them happy might not work for us. We all have to cherish our own reasons to get out of bed every morning. People go to work every day and handle the tasks they really hate for the vast majority of their lives Hoping someday they will retire and can finally follow their passion in their short remaining life span. This is a tragedy and surely has consequences. Having regrets is one of them alongside with having no memories to think about and crack a smile when we are old and sick in the bed waiting for our time to come. We have less stories of how fascinating we were to tell our grand kids about the days we were young and working on the projects that were so intriguing we hardly could felt the time gets passed by. Unfortunately this is happening now in our society. We should step back for a moment and ask ourselves "is this what we always wanted or are we brainwashed inadvertently to do the things we are doing now?"
