As it has been noted, for most of humanity some sort of purely consuming task seems most enjoyable these days.
I would much rather play strategy video games or chess, but there is a very limited market for good players. Also, it has been noted playing anything for money actually changes your enjoyment of that task. Corollary - if you are the best at something in the world - you can create your own profession.
Programming is something that I enjoy, but it is not something i want to do 24/7. However, it is well rewarded.
