The articles, “Dear Grads Don’t ‘Do What You Love’” and “Do What You Love and Starve?” explain that when one does what they love as an occupation, they will not prosper economically. This is because doing what one loves is often a tough labor market or a mental strain; causing one’s energy to drain. Carl McCoy’s article is short and sweet when explaining why one should not follow their dreams in certain fields. He suggests to the reader that one should go into a job that is performed with a sense of purpose, a sense that ‘love’ does not uphold. This is included because McCoy would like to see more people in fields like medical, education, and public safety.
I was astonished that all the other were “not-good-enough”. I felt underappreciated, I decided to do only what I was expected to removing all additional activities and ideas related to my job. I felt a void in me growing and I started to look for a solution and decided to stick to the rules and invest in me because this will give me a sense of purpose and later a better path to achieve my dreams. My manager encourages everyone to invest in skills and knowledge so I followed the suggestions and instead of trying to improve the company I am constantly improving myself. The stress went away, my responsibilities are done in a perfect way.
Take a position on whether work is the primary factor of your identity and respond accordingly Honestly, I think that work is a primary factor of my identity the job I work for now is not satisfying. I want more out of a job and something that I just get up and go to. I want to enjoy my job just as much as I enjoy life. There’s no growth with this company it like you continue to be in that one space and not going anywhere.my work adjustment is more reactive I’m looking to make changes in myself and environment. If I learn more about myself opens more career opportunity.
The Younger family has grown up without much and when the father dies, he leaves an inheritance that can get the family into a comfortable living position. The only problem is that they all want to use the money for different reasons. Each character wants to make their own dreams come true. They do not want to sacrifice their own dreams to please the others. Unwilling to make a sacrifice proves to bring more animosity in a family as shown in A Raisin in the Sun by Lorraine Hansberry through conflict involving money and how the characters handle their actions.
H. L. Mencken wrote “the average man does not want to be free. He simply wants to be safe.” I agree with this quote because of the deeper meaning it has behind it. In today’s society, people do not seem to have ambitions or dreams that they want to pursue. A lot of people settle with a job that pays just enough to make a living or they do not go beyond their limits to get a higher education to be able to make more money. These people are overcome by fear.
Foresight is a skill I use everyday to help me prepare for unexpected events by saving money and to practice skills that I think might be useful for me in my future. Not using Foresight also isn’t used by everyone and is what causes fear for many in modern day society and long ago for Elie’s family when they could have left their home and never had to experience anything they did, but instead chose to stay out of the fear of
One of my main reasons as to why her concept would not work is that this process eliminates room for growth. Since everyone will own the same things people may not feel the need to work as hard as others. People may not feel as fulfilled working at their jobs if there is no incentive. Although you could argue that people will work hard if they truly love what they are doing this can cause people to make substantial contributions to their field however if they receive credit for what they have done this can cause others to feel
The mindset of people have a lot to do with the American dream and as for hard work, it’s something that has to be done because without it, nothing much is achievable. In an article “How to achieve the American Dream” by Suzanne Lucas she explains how “Some people pat themselves on the back when they do as little work as possible. While this provides temporary fun, it won 't help towards real success.” Working hard is something that can be done by anyone who really wants to say they succeeded, yet many do not want to work and still want to say the dream is dead when they simply, are not trying to make it alive for themselves. However, some people that work hard and have a strong mindset did move up, proving that the dream is alive if you
Many if not all of the strikers family's couldn't afford the necessities for survival, and what for just to prove a point. No matter how angry you are about a situation think about your family's well being and ask your self if your willing to sacrifice your own well being in hopes of making a couple extra dollars. The rational thing to do if your not happy with your place of employment would be to go look for other jobs that offer a wage your adequately happy with. Violence isn't the answer in any situation it only inflicts pain mentality, physically, and
Many people that are victims who are trafficked are seeking to escape poverty and discrimination, improve their lives and send money back to their families. Often they get an offer of a well-paying job, when these victims arrive at the place of destination; they find that the work they were promised does not exist and they are forced instead to work in jobs or conditions to which they did not agree. I personally think that this is the harshest thing anyone can go
This makes the children want to work harder and worry about money because he is their primary source of income and the support that they receive. A lot of the times during work when they are out there they will be forced to skip a meal, but they do not usually complain they just keep working in order to help out. In the one part of the video you see the family taking a break and the one kid asks, “did we even eat yesterday” and someone else replies that there was too much work to take a break. Although a lot of the children do not wish to be working in the field, they all aspire to be able to finishes schools that they may find a new way of income to help support their families. Even though they all tend to be working to bring in money the main idea I think that they all share is that they will do anything for their families and them all being together is what matters most.
