Fulfilling Work

I'm reading Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell and am enjoying it. It is unusual in that the premise of the book seems to be 'you can't make your own success'.
I like Gladwell's take on work - it is satisfying, he says, if you have autonomy, if the work is sufficiently complex and if you receive reward for effort.
That could be quite a useful checklist if one is feeling frustrated with one's daily routine.
