If that were true how did we manage to produce the most inventive people in the world? Instead of having a nation of morons, as Smith seems to claim division of labor leads to, we have an educated populace in a country where thousands, if not millions, of foreign nationals vie to send their children for education (moral and cultural morons, maybe).
No matter how tedious a persons job is that doesn't prevent him from continuing his own education and pursuing his own goals. Night school, courses, two jobs, whatever it takes.
Just do it.
