"It is often agreed that enjoying your job holds more importance to earning a great deal of money." How far do you agree with this statement ?
 
Today, most people equate a job with the material comforts that it would bring rather than the satisfaction. It does appear that most people would look for a job that pays well, even if it means sacrificing your interests in the process. Just how important is it to enjoy your job?

If one enjoys one's work, doing your best in it is no longer a tedious task that requires backbreaking effort. In such a situation, there will always be the motivation to go to work and enjoy what there is to do. Take the example of a marine enthusiast who has a job in the Underwater World. Going to work with the marine life would be the draw itself. Thus, one will be keen on one's job rather than be a clockwatcher all the time in a job that does not appeal. Even if one is paid very well, it will be the money at the end of the month that one enjoys, rather than the work. In such a situation, one looks forward to only one day in a month, rather than every day.

But the reality of life is that money does make the world go round. How can one truly have a good life when one is constantly worrying over unpaid bills? It is important to enjoy work, but not at the expense of making a living. Only when one's basic necessities are met can one truly look to the other aspects of life. In most cases, enjoying your job is a luxury open to only a select few. For the rest of us, it is the money that counts more.

Furthermore, earning a lot of money allows one to enjoy life outside of the job. The woes and joys of life are then well balanced since the job that you do not enjoy is giving you the chance to enjoy your leisure. For many of us, this is a good trade-off. So one only works at a mundane or highly unenjoyable job for the sake of making a living, and then goes off to relax after work or during the weekends. This is also an acceptable state of affairs since most people do not equate a job with enjoyment.

If one enjoys one's job, then it is not work at all. The line between leisure and work could be blurred as a result. Such a situation may not be positive as it means that there are no clear demarcations in terms of time allocation. On the other hand, keeping work and play separate allows for one to leave either of the two behind when necessary so that one will not bring the stress of one into the other.

Yet, it must be noted that the best compromise is to find a job that pays comfortably rather than too much and is not detested by you. As such, you can grow to like your job (not necessarily enjoy it) and still be able to live well. This will be a happy situation indeed!
