While people typically enjoy having contact with others at their workplaces,this is not true for everyone.In my opinion,working by oneself offers several advantages over working with a group of people.
First,working alone enables people to save a lot more time than they would when working with others.When people are together in an office,much time can get wasted.My father always complains about the unproductive meetings he has to attend at his company.He notes that people do not usually talk much about anything important.Those meeting are just big wastes of time.If he worked alone,he could eliminate all of these unnecessary meetings,thereby saving himself more time to do more productive things.
Working alone gives people complete control over their work and enables them to enact their own ideas.Many people love to be able to express their own views at work.For example,many graphic designers and computer programmers seek the employment which allows them as much latitude as possible in their work.They want to control what they do and how they do it.If they had to work with others,they would not have so much freedom to choose how they do their jobs.By working alone,they can guarantee that they become more creative and their thoughts and ideas are implemented.
Finally,working alone can often guarantee the quality of the finished work.In fact,working with others diminishes the quality of the work too often.There is a saying that reads,“Too many cooks spoil the broth”.If too many people have input on a project,the end result will be negative because everybody has different thoughts,and,in many cases,nobody wants to take responsibility for the work done.However,if someone does everything by himself,he can be sure that his work will at least meet his own personal standards.
To conclude,working alone can allow people to save time,express their own opinions,and guarantee the quality of their work.It is therefore not surprising that a large number of people prefer to work alone than with others.
