Work responsibility is very important in life and allows people to get ahead in their career and get noticed by their bosses for their dedication and hard work. However, it is not the most important thing in life. Friends and family will always be more important than work will ever be.
I believe it is important to lead a responsible life where you maintain and pay your bills. This, obviously, requires some source of income, most likely a job. I do not, however, believe that work should be the most important thing in a persons life. I believe businesses have grown the attitude that employees should maintain work as the top priority, but for those of us with family, it definitely is not.
