"Enjoyment is only confined to our free time, and not work." How far do you agree with this statement ?
 
The usual perception of a worker is that of a person who is harassed by the need to make a living. His motivation for work is more a matter of necessity than interest. This is further corroborated by the media displaying pictures of workers at the busy commercial hub of Kuala Lumpur, usually taciturn and in a hurry. However, this may not be the complete picture of a worker in Malaysia.

It is without doubt that everyone enjoys his or her leisure. After all, if you are constantly pressurised every day working at a stressful job from nine to five, leisure in the form of a relaxing dinner, a game of squash or tennis, or even a karaoke session can be truly welcoming. Leisure allows one to reduce the pressure experienced when one is inundated with deadlines and endless projects. Thus, unwinding after a hard day's work would definitely be appreciated and greatly enjoyed.

Furthermore, leisure is always a social event, allowing friends and relatives alike to gather together for recreation. Such time spent not only allows you to keep in touch with the important people in your life, but it also reaffirms ties that are crucial to maintaining satisfying relationships. Self-esteem is then boosted when you feel the warmth and love encircling you at such gatherings.

Even if you do not do anything really sociable, preferring instead to read a good book or do some handiwork, it is still a change from the monotony of working life. That in itself is a welcome change from the hassle of balancing work schedules and adapting to the different temperaments of colleagues. Thus, it is definitely true that we do enjoy our leisure. However, it is not true to say that we do not enjoy our work.

After all, there are people who go into job areas of their personal interest. This could range from the exciting like scuba diving to the conventional like banking. Thus, people could very well enjoy their work because they have chosen to pursue their interests as working adults. A sporting enthusiast could go into the promotion of sports in a state or country and truly enjoy doing it as a job.

Furthermore, work also involves group dynamics. Thus, if you have built up good relationships with your colleagues, it is akin to having social gatherings with friends and family. In fact, many people have formed lasting relationships with colleagues who go on to become strong family friends. Thus, work is not necessarily not enjoyable.

Work can be enjoyable because it gives one a sense of achievement. At work, we are constantly challenged to perform our best, and to overcome that is in itself a wonderful feeling of accomplishment. Thus, it is certainly not wholly accurate to say that we do not enjoy our work, only our leisure. In fact, it is a fact of life that human beings are extremely resilient and flexible and thus will find enjoyment in what they do, be it work or leisure.
