Money is almost everything, with it you don't have to worry about the necessities of life.
Food, shelter, entertainment.
Then you can focus on your relationships with other people.

Tell that to the millions of people who live under the poverty line in this country. I'm sure they'll have some rather harsh words for you.

If money were everything, I wouldn't have the people I have in my life today

Money pays the rent and feeds your kids. For some money is a way of keeping score: guys having a dick measuring contest over the size of their wads of cash or the shinyness of their bling.

There is a point where monetary rewards cease to aid production though.

For simple repetitive tasks that produce concrete product a payment that increases as production increases actually encourages production.

For complex tasks that require a difficult to acquire skill sets, there have been suggestions that a direct cash reward for productivity actually HINDERS production. The studies that suggest this also indicate that what DOES produce a increase in production from those who perform such tasks are: Autonomy (being in charge of oneself, able to make one's own choices), Mastery (A sense of accomplishment in a skill. or skills ie 'I am the best painter in <insert region here>), and the ability share with one's peers.

an Australian software company would give it's troubleshooters one day a month where they could work on any project they liked, a relaxed environment was provided with free food and drink where they could socialize as well. They solved more problems in that one day a month than the rest of the month.

So even from a strict dollars and cents, production tunnel-visioned, point of view: Money isn't everything.

There's a dark side of this that also proves my point.

The Jihadists who blew up the world trade centre didn't kill themselves to make money.

Money ISN'T everything.

When you have nothing of course money is important. not in and of itself however, Money is a tool to feed your kids, put a roof over your head. make sure your mother get's the surgery she needs (although in my country the money for the surgery is supplied via tax money and every one is supposed to have access to that, even those below the poverty line). But really is it everything? I would argue no. Food, Shelter, Family They are EVERYTHING and they are WHY many people who HATE the adoration some people lavish on money, strive so hard to acquire it. Money isn't everything. But it is often the barrier between you and what is everything to you.

Once people have enough money for those basic needs. Only the damaged ones continue to crave cash.
