Sometimes I wish
I were motivated entirely by money and nothing else.
It would make the decision-making process (in the whole Option Overload arena)

Money is not the root of all evil. The LOVE of money is.
EArning it isn't a crime.

That's not my point, although you're correct on all counts.
My point is, if I only cared about money, the decision-making process (as I pare down these way too many choices facing me in my career right now) would be simple.
Instead, I actually like some projects more than others, have career-building reasons for taking on some vs. others, and then there's the whole PEOPLE factor.
If my only criteria were money, I could just line all of the choices up and the top-paying gigs would be the ones I accepted.
Unfortunately, I don't get that "easy" a way to make my choices, by virtue of the fact that I value many, many different elements of each project to different degrees.
Being a whore would be so cool sometimes.

that's part of what makes you, you.
And neither you, nor any of the rest of us, would have you any other way.
You can, at least, try to take comfort in the fact that you're presented with all these different options. That people value you as a professional enough to give you all these opportunities, and to seek you out to be a member of their team.
Does that make it any easier? No, of course not. If life was truly so easy, it would be boring and uneventful. And who wants boring and uneventful?
Ok, I got nuttin....

Though I don't believe that money is the be all and end all of the world, and that's probably because I don't have that much, I do believe it can help provide options one wouldn't have without it. You have tough choices to make but I know you'll make the ones that are right for you.
