Agree or disagree: people should sometimes do things that they don’t enjoy doing.
It is easy to understand if people do not want to do things that they do not like to do. In other words, they only try to do things that they are keen on. However, it is sometimes very important to do “bored” things because they can be very necessary and the things we enjoy doing can sometimes be harmful.
There are many things that people are not keen on but their importance must be considerable. For example, almost all students in the world prefer playing or going out to studying at school or doing homework. However, studying is obviously very important to us because it helps us to increase our ranges of knowledge, help us to prepare for our future as well as our careers and it helps us to be a good citizen for our country. Contrary to this, students often do not want to study as much as they can because they do not realize how important it is and they think it is very boring. Another example is that children usually hate doing housework. However, it is sometimes necessary to do housework because it is a good way to help their parents and to have a better preparation for their future.
We can not refuse that things we like to do are sometimes very harmful. For instance, many people are easily become addicted to video games. They think video games are very interesting and relaxing. In the contrast, they do not realize that video games can be very harmful because the addicts can spend too much time on playing games, which can plunge their abilities to study as well as to do community activities. Further more, video games can sometimes cause many diseases related to eyes and bones. Some addicts can be dead because they play too much video game.
It is not easy to spend time on things that we do not want to do. Although they can be very boring, we sometimes need to do them because it can be very important to us and it is true that there are many things that we like can be not helpful as we think.
