What job best balances earning potential with an enjoyable lifestyle?

Here's the example. Accountant or someone who works with money: Pretty high-paying job, but it's horrible to do - suits, monotony, numbers, low-social interaction, not very outside-the-square creative thinking, no real satisfaction. Fitness instructor: Fun, energetic job, lots of talking to people, satisfaction from helping people, outside in the sun, no suits, some creativity. Not very high paying really. So where is the job that's going to let you e********y, but also leave you going home and night thinking that you helped someone, and has lots of social interaction with fun people, and doing some cool creative, exciting things?
