Quite.

If human society were better organised then it would perhaps be necessary for each adult to contribute only about 20 hours per week of labour to the community to get all his/her material needs (roti, kapda, makan) met and use the free time to engage in other pursuits which are \"life-enhancing!\"

(We shall assume such utopia would take very good care of all material needs for pre-adults who would be engaged primarily in educational games!)

What do you mean by a better society? You mean more organized? Well certainly people make up a society. If each person has good work ethics and manages his or her time professionally, there will be plenty of free time in the weekend and in the evenings to indulge in one\'s hobbies and fun activities.

Life could be celebrated even if you work more.It depends on the attitude of the people and not on the quantum of workdone.

The question of celebrating leisure comes only when you are engaged in some work . T HE WORD LEISURE STANDS JUST OPPOSITE TO WOKS ONLY . SO IF A PERSON DOESNT DO ANY THING , HE NEEDS NO LEISURE OR BREAK IN HIS CONTINUOS PROCESS OF WOKING . HE WILL JUST BE MORIBUND LIKE A DEAD RIVER . SO ONE WHO IS IN THRE MIDST OF WORK , MENTAL OR PHYSICAL , HE NEEDS TO HAVE A LEISURE OR BREAK FOR BEING CREATIVE AS IT WORKS AS A FUEL FOR HIS FURTHER JOUNEY FOR FULFILMENT OF LIFE\"s goal .

It is not in the amount of time spent for work or leisure, it is in how we are able to manage everything effectively; and it is in one\'s attitude. It is not true that if we are free from work we will be more happy. We can find happiness and celebrate even in a moment. Even if we get a full month free time, and if we are not having the proper attitude, how can we enjoy and celebrate life.
We need to balance career/work and personal life. Our life is a mixture of happiness and sorrow.
Work while you work and play while you play, with right spirit and healthy positive attitude.
Life is a voyage in which we choose neither vessel nor weather, but much can be done in the management of the sails and the guidance of the helm.
When are we really celebrating life? When our mind is happy and peaceful, when we have good relationship with people around us. These things are possible when we have a sound physical and mental wealth, otherwise one or the other worry will be pinching us all the ti ...more

I THINK WORK AND CELEBRATION MAY GO TOGETHER AS WELL..The society would have increased leisure hours that may leave better part of time for celebration of life.But ideal would be a comfortable balance between useful work and celebrating the life.The celebration of life must be a concurrent process with whatever work has got to be done for fulfilling one\'s biological mandate of managing for food, shelter and procreation.The life shouldn\'t be just lived but concurrently celebrated..One could always choose to enjoy one\'s consciousness to the full.This consciousness will never be assembled in the same form ever.This is the first and last chance for one to enjoy or miss the chance.

Those who work themselves are the people who are seldom successful, but those who get the work done are mostly successful. Getting work done by others also means finding employment for others and bringing peace of mind to others. Only such people have the reason and time to celebrate.
