Imagine you are rich.

You no longer have to work. Would you still work anyway?

What kind of business would you run? Or maybe you'd prefer to be employed?

As for me, I'd love to open an Arcade near my old Highschool in NYC.

A place where people can throw in a quarter, & play Street fighter, or any oher fighting game out there.



If not that, I'd run a pizza shop.

Think of all of the billionaires out there: Warren Buffet, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, George Soros, Donald Trump, as examples. Now ask yourself this, as rich as those guys are (were - Steve died), how come they all kept working?

I don't think it is because they want more money, not at this point. I think it is because they want to see how far they can go. How high they can reach. Work, for them, isn't work anymore. It's a challenge to see what they can accomplish beyond what they've already accomplished. They want to push themselves evermore to their limits.

That's what I think. I think if we were the sort to get that rich, that we'd be doing the same thing.

Same here . If you find a nice spot you could stop for a few weeks but then the itch would start again.

Am I rich enough to do Philanthropy work or just rich enough to own a house, and my bills paid, and own fancy gadgets or toys?
If philanthropy counts as work then, yes. Being rich means I could do the work I love, I love giving back.
I think it would be a waste and you would loose self-esteem very quickly if you did not feel you achieve something. You have to have some kind of desire or goal in mind to feel productive. this would keep you from falling into money traps like gambling or addictive behaviors.
remember Philanthropy could be helping out people in anything.
Maybe you want to be a sponsor to Crunchyroll or maybe you want to build wells or farms in Africa.
I am not rich even now I volunteer as much I can for work I find important. I think I still would do the volunteer even if I was rich but I would add in more things it would make me accessible to do.
Who knows maybe being rich would get me into a lot of trouble and I would buy things I did not need and forget about the welfare of those I could help and forget to live within a certain means. I could not say. I can only hope the way I wish my actions would take me.

I think I´d go for a long vacation. See all the places I wanna see, like Egypt, Rome and stuff. Then I´d probably quit my regular job and use the money to become a full time author or make a movie. I think I´d need to keep myself busy and do things that I care about, or I´d stagnate. I´d try and do some charity work too If I could.

I feel like I'd need to do something to stay busy, but I have no idea what that "something" is. I'd probably work less hours so I can spend more time seeing the world. Though it'd depend on how much I enjoyed the job that made me my cash.
