SERI PELAJARAN MENULIS ESSAY IELTS #96

Nowadays more and more people want to get things done instantly (services, information, tasks). Why is this? Do you think it is a positive or negative development?

Life has demand us a faster way in doing almost everything related to every aspect in our day to day situation. People do not have time to wait for a long time because they are afraid that they might be left behind in the competition. This essay will analyze more about the reasoning behind people’s tendency to do anything in an instant.

The first reason is that people need to build a success in career in a very young age compared to the past. In the past, people tend to get a job at the age of 24 or 25 and they stay at the same job as the result of low competition. In contrast, teenagers these days have technology at the tips of their hand and they can get any information quickly. Many people build start up that creates billions of dollars although they are very young. Even adolescents and teenagers can invent something if they work hard for it. This is the first reason why people do things instantly: if you are slow, you will be left behind.

The second reason is that the exposure of social media. Social media has the tendency to reflect the bias that is intentionally made by people in our surroundings. They put on their glamorous wedding party photos, their expensive vacation trips to exotic international places, and their every success in personal and career. Having been surrounded by the display of success and positivity, people will have no options other than comparing their life to that of others. They then will ask the similar question: what do I need to do to be successful like that? This jealousy feeling makes people more spirited and motivated to pursue success in life, hence, the reason why they want everything to be done quickly.

In conclusion, I believe that this is all positive development. People are motivated by others’ display of success and try to improve their life based on it. However, it is important to be mindful that for the weak-minded people, it can cause them unwanted depression and the feeling of unworthiness as they regard themselves as less successful compared to other peers, friends, and families.
