And to put it in another perspective: To do a duty can be to achive something. Kant said "Morality is not the doctrine of how we may make ourselves happy, but how we may make ourselves worthy of happiness"
We talked plenty of times about the scenario where 4 guys are in need of organs and and healthy guy walks in who has those. Should you take them from him? Will increase overall happiness.

Though one of the guys in the audience had a brilliant comeback to it: Why not wait til' one of the guys who needed organs died, and then use his organs to save the 3 others? I guess that's the best scenario for such an event.
