This is a true story. Some years ago the following exchange was broadcast on an Open University sociology TV program. An interviewer was talking to production-line worker in a biscuit factory. The dialogue went like this:
Interviewer: How long have you worked here?
Production Lady: Since I left school - about 15 years...
Interviewer: What do you do?
Production Lady: I take packets of biscuits off the conveyor belt and put them into cardboard boxes.
Interviewer: Have you always done the same job? Production?
Interviewer: Do you enjoy it?
Production Lady: Oooh yes, it's great, everyone is so nice and friendly, we have a good laugh.
Interviewer (with a hint of disbelief): Really? Don't you find it a bit boring?
Production Lady: Oh no, sometimes they change the biscuits...
Reminding you don't assume that that what motivates you is what motivate others. It is also important to recognize that sources of happiness may vary widely between people.
