Should work be work?

Due to a variety of factors I have been looking around the job market for the last few months. During this time I have sent myself slightly mad.

Some roles were not right due to the location, I’ve done long commutes and have found recently due to roadworks and number of vehicles on the roads take twice as long as they used to. So ideally don’t want an extra 1.5 hours either side of my work day.

There are then roles that I have dropped out of the process on as I didn’t feel excited by the role or the challenge. I want there to be something that makes me want to sit in-front of a laptop each day I want some Fun! This resulted in a point by wife that it’s work and not meant to be fun. I disagree, when I say fun I don’t mean clowns and office yoga. What I mean is enjoyment and finding satisfaction in what I’m doing.

I’m lucky that in this role and my last role I have till been able to be involved in technology and some really interesting projects and this is what I want. I don’t really want a role that sits between two grey lines

So is it wrong to want work not to be work?
