Sometimes people can look at something and come to completely different conclusions. Take my ten-year-old son. To him, if he has to do something (or if he’s required to do something) it’s not worth doing. He can always think of something else that’s more interesting or more worthwhile. However (perhaps just because I’m a parent) I believe the opposite. That just because you have to do something doesn’t mean that it’s not worth doing. In many cases, the things that we’re required to do can end up being very beneficial for us. It’s just that it’s not always obvious how they’re beneficial.
