The short answer is no. In our society most people spend nearly a third of their life at work. When you consider that another third of your life is spent sleeping, you begin to realize that's a significant chunk of your conscious life either at work, or on your way to or from work. With this in mind, it's pretty clear that the most important aspect of your job is that you can, at worst, tolerate it, and at best, enjoy your time there. You will likely end up "living" more of your life on the job than "living" the life your job is supposed to support. It's not fair, but it is reality.
If you find yourself in a high paying job that you can't tolerate you will quickly burn out. When you reach burn out one of two things is going to happen. You'll break and quit your job, in which case you lose the high pay, or your performance will suffer and you'll get yourself fired, in which case you lose the high pay.
That isn't to say that money is not important. It is, but only to the point that your job pays at least enough to meet your needs.
