Nowadays more and more people are eager to get a good education in order to make a successful career. Some people think that getting a high position at work should be the aim of every person while other people believe that having a happy family and enjoying your life is more important. I will consider both points of view.
In my opinion, career should come first and I will explain why. Firstly, if you are a top manager of a company, you probably earn a lot of money. That means that you can afford better standards of life. Moreover, your children will not be short of money in the future. Secondly, a successful career can provide a high social status. You will be in touch with famous and rich people, foreign businessmen.
Nevertheless, other people do not share this point of view.
They claim that, being concentrated on work, you will likely to see less of your family and kids. You will not take care of your family enough and bring up your children properly. Moreover, they believe that such a person will feel lonely because he will be surrounded with partners and colleagues only who cannot always be trusted.
I do not think they are right. It seems to me that a disciplined and wise person can combine a personal life with work. He will find time both for the family and himself and for work. That is why he will not feel lonely.
In conclusion, I would like to say that, having considered both points of view on this issue, I can surely claim that positive sides of the dilema outweigh the negative ones.
