Question :Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Because modern life is very complex, it is essential for young people to have the ability to plan and organize. Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.

Because of technological development, life has become more complex compared to the past. So, it is necessary for people to have some abilities. In my opinion, in this era,the ability of planning is one of the most important abilities,especially for young people. I feel this way for two main reasons which I will explore in what follows. To begin with, nowadays, many things can distract young people from their goals. To state it more clearly, there are more and various types of entertainment compared to the past that can attract young people and prevent them from achieving their goals. So, the ability to plan and organize has a key role in the success of people. For instance, when my mother was a student, she did not have many options for entertainment and she could only watch TV. So, making a balance between studying and watching TV was easy for her. Whereas, now there is plenty of entertainment in addition to TV, such as video games, social media, and the internet, and without planning young people might waste their time and miss the chance to achieve their goals. Moreover, complex life means that there will be more competition between employees. So, they should work hard and they will be busy and have less free time to spend with their loved ones; the ability to plan will help people to spend parts of their time with their friends and family members. My personal experience is a great example of this, when I was a student at the university, I was not able to plan for my weekends in first year. So, I ended up wasting it by sleeping or watching TV. This made my parents upset because they wanted to see me on weekends. After a couple of months, one of my roommates helped me to make plan for my weekends and after that, I was able to visit my parents and even my friends. To conclude, the ability to plan and organize is necessary for today's complex life. This is because by having plan, people can concentrate on their goals and achieve them,and spend their free time visiting their parents or friends. Hence, I recommend young people learn how to plan for themselves because of its benefits.
