Does work have to be fun?

Hello fellow HEthens,

Just been wondering about this lately:  It seems like there’s a super strong movement for my generation (I’m 21) to do the things that “make them happy”, “bring them bliss”, yadda, yadda, yadda.  I can’t help but wonder about this happiness stuff though. It seems like so many scientific/technological advancements have been made…not because people necessarily enjoy their work every minute of every second, but because they’re making a change. Making a contribution. Changing society. I feel like it’s unrealistic to expect to find that ONE THING that not only makes you money, but also makes you happy. Do you think there’s any merit to being more or less grumpy about doing work, but satisfied with the end result? I’m not sure where I’m going with this anymore. I just feel like if everybody went after the things that made them happy, lots of important things would go undone. Any thoughts?
