“Why aren’t some people improving themselves other than just doing their jobs?” Quora Question
Answer by Ella Louise:
Honestly I think it simply comes down to the fact we are all different and everyone has their own goals and aspirations for their lives and for what makes them happy.
Everyone’s main goal in life is happiness, whether it be from their work, their family, the money at then end of it all we strive for what will make us happy.
I know some people who love their comfortable and secure job. They earn enough to be happy and support their family and due to the limited stress and pressure they have a great work / life balance and wouldn’t trade is in for more.
On the other hand some people live for furthering themselves career-wise and their ultimate goal is reach the pinnacle of their chosen profession. In doing this their life may be a little more hectic than others but this is what makes them happy so they will keep going.
There is nothing wrong with either choice and there will be others who may plan on working hard in their youth so they can retire early and enjoy their future.
It simply comes down to personal preference and what each individual considers important in life to achieve satisfaction.
