Eh, I disagree. I've been approached for jobs that pay $200k+ but turned them down due to many of the other factors listed.

My comfort and job satisfaction is worth more to me than a higher salary. Money doesn't buy happiness, and a bit of extra money in the bank doesn't make up for all of the other stress.

Once I hit a pay level where my life was comfortable, I stopped looking at the money so much as "how much crap do I have to put up with to get this money?"

And with each passing year, the amount of crap I'm willing to put up with declines :)
