If we only did what made us happy, some things would never get done.  We would be in a fix depending on others to do things for us (assuming we could find folks who were happy to do all of the things that made them happy and do everything for us also).

This explains why I’m not so good at crossword puzzles, but I do have a lot of folks around me who make me happy.
