This* came to mind as the short answer to this question.

I don't really care what I'm doing, so long as it's adding value whatever venture I'm doing it for. That said, I'd also like not to be taken too much for granted or have colleagues poach my work.

Aside from all that? What else to say? If I'm getting paid to shovel sh!t I'll do the best possible sh!t-shoveling job I can. My identity and sense of fulfillment are not beholden to the work I do: the work I do is merely to fund the rich (and it is rich, trust me) life outside the office.
