I would work; probably public office. Or do something productive and beneficial to mankind that I enjoy instead.

So rich that I'll have no worries about running out of money even if I fund some big projects? If so I think I would still "work" but not in the typical sense. I'd want to find people and businesses that are already working on improving things in the area, whether that be a better transportation system, a small grocery store in an area that solely needs it, overhauling delapidated/abandoned buildings to make that neighborhood better, etc... If I believed in their goal and thought it could actually work economically long term then I'd work with them to help them build it. I like new challenges so I don't think I'd want to spend my whole life on one thing, if I could go from project to project and see real results and improvements after each one I think that would be very rewarding.

Not likely. Maybe I'd start a business and manage it.

Surprisingly I'd still aim for the same thing.

I think it really depends on how I got rich. If I got rich from inheritance then I might want to do some work here and there to feel a little accomplished and have a little pride.

Yes. I´d do what I do now since I love it and all that.

If you´re just rich and never working I think your mind would deteriorate very quickly. The key to having a healthy mind and body is to be always active.

If for some reason I wouldn´t do what I do now, I´d probably travel the world a lot and spend my time in other countries, find some spiritual guidance and shit. I wouldn´t do just any job to have a job, though. It has to be what I do now.

I would work. When I was without a job for a while after I graduated I felt like a dead weight to society. I do not like feeling as if I do not add anything to the community and am not helping anyone. Jobs exist because they get stuff done and I enjoy that.

Depends on your definition of rich... mine is when I'm making 500k - 1 million a year after taxes.. and really would need to be earning more than that with the way the economy is heading because right now to be apart of the 1% you need to be making around 350k a year... but I would want to make sure I was worth enough in the bank to bring home over a million a year after taxes and then invest in businesses and real estate to make another million a year and I guess I would still work by managing those businesses.. I might would just retire and chill after my businesses earning around 10m a year and i had 100m + in the bank...

I'd go live abroad and country hop for a long time, taking occasional trips back home to catch up with people. As for work, maybe part time and maybe different short term stints to keep busy and do something I have fun doing.

I'd find someone with a startup, invest in them, and maybe give a hand in helping them run the business.

I'd work part time instead of full time. I'd probably find some place closer to home to avoid the ugly commute. If I worked part-time I'd have more time to do the things I want to do. ... Like work on my giant backlogs!

I liked working part time, but I had no money. Now, I work full time, but have no time to enjoy my things.
