In the book Flow by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, he talks about how people are happiest and doing their best work (his idea of flow) when there's a good balance between being comfortable with the work you're doing and being challenged in it. As your skills improve, it's important to continue to find new challenges for those skills. I know that I'm happiest and have gotten the best rewards when I've taken risks and embraced difficult situations. The inverse is also true: when I've avoided interesting risks, I've often regretted it.
