Work and rest

Writing and etymology in Korean
일과 휴식
[ilgwa hyusig]
勞動과 休息
勞動 (일할) [Ilhal] – work
休息 (휴식) [hyusig] – rest

While a person lives, he needs to work on something. In terms of quality, there are two different types of work: work done quickly and well, and work done quickly and bad. Most people like good work done in the shortest amount of time.

If you ask your eyes to look at something carefully all day, they will sigh and ask how this is possible. Our hands and feet will say the same thing: “My master just woke up and immediately took us to work and does not want to give us a break.” However, once the work is completed successfully in a short time, everyone will be happy.

Generally young people like to have fun. This means that they do not like the job. But if we have to do nothing for a long time, it will become a real hell. It will also be difficult to dance all week without stopping. Also, playing with yourself will not bring joy.

Even pleasant things, such as rest or play, can become more difficult than any work if they are not in harmony with the situation. If after every activity, be it work or play, we can rest, we feel good, but if we only rest for a long time, we will get bored and upset.

Modern people are accustomed to working eight hours a day. But if we have a specific goal in front of us, working only during the working day and resting the rest of the time is not necessarily a good thing.

Will our goal be achieved if we play and relax as often as people who don’t? Once we set a goal, we have a specific schedule of work to achieve it. Everyone understands that it is better to push yourself and get the job done quickly than to waste time.

Working hard towards a goal will bring us more happiness than playing or doing nothing. If we deeply understand that working towards a goal is better than playing, our work becomes real work.
