I had a very interesting chat with my GP this morning. He commented that there appeared to be a real gender devide in the search for happiness. He said that most men go to work to earn the $ they need to do what they want to do but don’t really care about job satisfaction. He said it was women who tended to look for meaning in their work and as a result it was women who went back to study as adults (in general – obviously). He argued for just getting a job to have the $ to do what you want….is that defeatist? Does it say that money buys happiness afterall? I doubt that many people would continue working if they had enough money to never have to work but surely there are people out there who enjoy their job or at least get some level of emotional satisfaction from it?
