Things People Do
Vivek Yadav

*******************************************************************************************************************************
There are two kind of things people do. One the things people have to do and two the things people like to do.
The things people have to do are the things people have to do for living. Things people like are the things people do to live. Both are necessary living and to live. Example people have to work to get money for living and people like to go to movies or play because they like them and they live that time.
 
Many times the things people have to do and the things people like to do are not the same. Person who has to do what he/she likes to do is the luckiest of all the people of the world because that person does not have to divide time and resources between the two.
 
Many people hate their jobs and say they do not like the things they have to do and thus dont do the things they have to do properly. And since they do not do the things they have to do properly, they end up spendig more time and getting stressed about the things they have to do. And they would have less time to do and enjoy things they like to do. best would be to finish the things that have to be done and make time for things that are more likeable. This way people will not hate their jobs even if they do not love them, and they will still have time to enjoy what they like to do.
 
It is more enjoyble to do the things you have to do if you know that you will do the things you like to do as a reward.
 
But the questions remains why do people have to do the things they have to do? Many people end up in jobs either because they are good at the job or they like the job or they got the job easily.
 
The people who do the jobs they are good at, and because they are good at it, they enjoy it. The people who take up the job they like, and do well are also happy. people who get the job easily may be happy or unhappy. Thinking about each of the person, see that the people who take up jobs they like and are not good at it get frustated soon. and start hating the work place.
The people who get the job easily are too smart or too stupid. Too stupid because they do not want to put in efforts to find the kind of job they would like to have and are happy with what ever they get. These type of people are happy because they dont have high expectations from themselves.
If thought, carefully all the above situations give rise to the things people have to do.
it all depends on choices people make. Each choice has a price. Some times the price may seem high.
