T2: Which do you think is more important: spend more time on accompanying your families or work and study.
Do you agree or disagree with the following statement: it’s more important to spend time with family than to spend time simply on study or working.
I think the situation depends. Like say, you are an ambitious young man, you have so many dreams to achieve, the work and study is definitely your priority, you have to read widely, travel more often, and be thirsty for personal growth,so as to constantly upgrade yourself and become competitive enough to stand out from the crowd in this fierce competing world. But if you are a family man who enjoy family gathering time the most. Like say, a dog, kids, and a happy family are what you desire the more, then you should definitely spend more time on accompanying them; that is another kind of life-style,which is also admirable and should be respected.
I agree with the statement. We always keep study and work in mind because they help us go places, get rewards. However, family is something we should never choose to neglect. I have a second cousin who works overseas now. He’s a CEO for a big company and has always been a success. All the time he spent in boarding schools and college in UK deprived him of the time to spend with family. His parents love him a lot of course, but when we had family gatherings and talked about their son, the old couple always sighed because they didn’t have much to talk to their boy and ditto my second cousin. In all I think it’s a sad story. I guess balancing the time between family and work/study is after all crucial for every person.
