In education and employment, some people work harder than others. Why do some people work harder? Is it always a good thing to work hard?
Since young, people are educated and praised to be diligent and hard-working. Either at school or in workplaces, teachers and leaders encourage people to try their best. There are always some people who tend to be more assiduous for various reasons.
For many people, the strongest motivation of work harder is the desire to be outstanding and to outcompete others. To rank top and to then be admired has become their habits and deep rooted belief. It seems there is no other option but making more efforts to excel from which they derive confidence and sense of achievement. In addition, there are also students or employees who have to work more diligently to catch up. Otherwise, it is highly possible that they will be left behind or be eliminated soon. Facing fierce competition, many people are seized by awareness of crisis.
Obviously, people who are internally charged and self-driven to work harder can not only reap the rewards of their diligence and efforts, but also contribute more to the school they study in or the company they work in. However, the notion of working harder is not always good in people’s life. Haunted by the desire to win or the fear to lose, people usually suffer too much pressure that may cause various physical and psychological diseases. Also, over fatigue is to blame for people’s fading happiness. The increasing percentage of people plagued by insomnia is just a typical instance.
To sum up, students and employees choose to work harder for many reasons, and it is by no means always advisable for people to be more assiduous than others.
