All people are worker. Meanwhile, “activity” and “work” indicates to all activities done by man or by the man creation (technology, machine, tools). The some activities aim to obtain basic necessities of life, which we call fee, salary, commission, or money. There is also activity which more addressed to obtain mental necessities, like science and skill, either through formal or informal institution. A few activities also addressed to tighten social activity. And some of activities aim to obtain spiritual necessities giving brightness to seat of emotion, mind peacefulness, which is basal in facing life storms.

Even all people are worker, but the experts often discriminates thee type of job activity—in meaning of career maintaining life of worker—into five big groups.
  1. Functional work focused at technical expertise in special areas. This is done by mechanical expert, graphic design, Librarian, technician, operator, and etc.

With understanding this, emerges other opinion that work hard is a needed foundation, but will not bring someone to high quality of life. Work hard is required, but is not sufficient condition to enjoy life that is with high quality and full of meaning. Worked hard only draw if we still in age about 20-40 years. Over 40, we ought to have been able to work smartly, becomes creative worker, and is giving meaning to our fleeting life.
