Life, Work and Contentment

'Cause it's a bittersweet symphony, this life, Try to make ends meet, You're a slave to money then you die ... I once had perceived that a good job was the gateway to happiness. I had a long conversation with a good friend who challenged that notion. The debate we had was whether or not I should try harder to find contentment in my work. The suggestion offered to me was that I should consider if the job is the issue or if it something else. And to be perfectly honest, I'm not sure what it is. I was under the impression that if I obtained some higher degree, it would open the door to something better. However there is a risk involved: what happens if I end up in the same situation somewhere else? I'm just really confused. Should I be losing so much sleep over this?
