One of the sad truths about the world today is that most people look upon work as something to es-cape from. To them, this significant part of life is a necessary evil, even an obstacle to the life they dream about. From plenty of personal conversations, some people choose simplicity to escape work. That’s not what simple life is for. Undoubtedly, some discontent about work comes from faulty think-ing about its reason. The point of the desire to get out of work needs to be included. Dorothy Sayers, in her famous essay Why Work? It begs us to see work anew. She seeks nothing less than “a thor-oughgoing revolution in our whole attitude to work.” Sayers believes in looking upon work “not as a necessary drudgery to be undergone to make money, but as a way of life in which the nature of man should find its proper exercise and delight and so fulfill itself.” Work, in this regard, is not something to be avoided. It is something to be pursued and enjoyed. Work contributes to the good of society and moves us ahead. In our day, the need for talent and abilities is high. Please work hard and do it well. It improves us, enriches our lives, and creates a great society.
