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.
Nowadays people spend too much time on personal enjoyment-doing things they like to do, rather than doing things they should do. Some people strongly assert that many young people are working hard as the day passes to contribute to the development of our society and hardly have any time left to relax, let alone do what they like. Others do not accede to this way of thinking and claim that this situation is the opposite of what is happening in real life. Many people are distracted from their jobs to do what they enjoy. I am in favor of the idea that nowadays people spend too much time doing things they like and do not focus on doing the things they should do. First of all, the reason why I think that people are spending too much time doing things they like rather than doing their job is their obsession with modern technology, such as mobile phones, computers, televisions, etc. those technologies have been dominating people’s lives in the recent years. Because of the joys they can gain from social media, people are getting addicted to technology and they can sit all day long and watch television or play games on their phones. They will spend most of their time with technology instead of doing something important. Another reason is that technology has made professional jobs much easier than jobs in the past. Most jobs are now with the help of advanced computers and automation systems. This means that nowadays people do not have to undertake physical activities to fulfill a handy job. In the past, people could not engage in personal hobbies as much as today's people can. In conclusion, I believe that people today spend too much time on personal enjoyment and not enough time on more serious duties and obligations. This is because today's incomes of people have increased and because they have more free time than in the past.
