"[S]ometimes we also enjoy the labour itself, but only because it produces fruit." We enjoy feeling good about ourselves. To put it negatively, if I thought I was ineffective I would feel bad about myself, in a way that would spur me to attempt remedial action. The more effective I think I am in dealing with life's problems, the more favorable my view of my prospects. And my gaining a reward through labor (where the reward has more positive value than the labor has negative) is evidence for my general effectiveness. It has positive value as *news about me*.
