My job needs to have some meaning to me because if not I wont be working that job long unless it has excellent pay. I would love to have a great paying job that I just can't wait to go back to work, but honestly what are those chances. Almost every job has a downfall to it. Meaningful work to me means that I might not be having the funnest time, but I'm getting out of it what I want. Like for instance, I want to be a lawyer. I know that you can graduate from college with pretty much any degree and become a lawyer. I will get paid pretty well, but it's a stressful job with a lot of extra work involved. In the end for me meaningful = money!!
