Jason Fried speaking the truth:
Truth is, every day work is rarely exciting. Most work is pretty mundane. Even work on meaningful things. The most profound stuff is built one mostly boring brick at a time. Even the most creative ideas, the best art, the breakthroughs have to be assembled, and assembly isn't typically what fires people up.
If people ask me if I love accounting, I usually answer with “I don’t hate it” or “I don’t dread going to the office in the morning” or “I enjoy it most days”.
