Yeah. The happiest lawyers I know mostly rarely practice law and instead work in other disciplines, such as teaching, though they maintain their membership in the bar so they can help friends and family members with legal matters.

The others do practice law but mostly do probate work out of personal or small firms.

I can see that working on big cases could be interesting for a while, if that's the sort of thing your personality fits – some of the same pressure as working for a software startup, say. But it does seem like it would be very difficult to sustain.
