In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.
"Today, we grow up in a world where we are taught to focus on one career and do the most we can to become successful. Driven by things like money and power, it makes it easy to forget the things that should really take importance in our everyday lives. When at the end of the day all you are left with is your money and power, are you truly happy? Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s quote addresses the issue of achieving more for oneself than simply material things. Finding an avocation, defined by Dictionary.com as 'something a person does in addition to a principal occupation, especially for pleasure; hobby' is just as pertinent in fulfilling one’s life as having a successfully driven career is."
