I think work is important for one's psychological health. Not necessarily being a cashier, but just accomplishing or creating SOMETHING. If I never worked again, I'd feel pretty worthless, and I think my mental state would deteriorate.

I would still work. It doesn't make sense to start slacking off and doing nothing just because the goal has changed. You go from "working to live" to "working for activity". The human mind doesn't like being idle. No amount of money in the world is going to change that.

Those who mentioned the "elites" (like Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, etc) should realize that there's a disconnect between those who magically came into money and those who worked for it (Bill Gates versus Donald Trump, for example). For the ordinary person, winning the lottery (let's say $300m+) would change their lifestyle drastically unless they knew that it should be enough to last generations if used responsibly. Giving up working just because you can just seems a bit silly. I wouldn't give up working for anything - I've been working since I was eight-years-old and have no intention of stopping now.

You're sorely mistaken on the part of Human mind doesn't like to being idle! I don't work, I just can't being around people. I'm loner, I rather stay in my room alone.. I don't go to Family thing..like christmas, Thanksgiving, Birthday...

Now that a good habit, you've been working since you're 8 year old! That what the young Generation need.. Because if they never work in their teen year and not working during College, their parents just want them to focus on college. Once they're out of college, they'll be thinking the job will be perfect for them, guess what its not what you expected.. it doesn't goes your way. They eventually get burnt out and feel uncomfortable..

This is probably true. But what do you do when you're staying in your room alone? You're posting online, watching anime, reading things, communicating ... these things are preventing your mind from being "idle". After an extended time of doing this, you get to the point where you're complacent and don't care or you lose your mind and start wandering around.

I can't tell you how many people I met in college who didn't quite understand why I was working. I had no parents to pay my tuition for me, so I had to work to make ends meet. Tuition was higher since it was an ivy league school and I lived off-campus. I worked at a sandwich shop (a local one in Boston) and at a grocery store. Everyone else would just go enjoy themselves or make sure they finished their coursework early. Once they got out of college, they struggled keeping up with the expectations of a job. lol.

Depends if I like my job, and if I'm doing something which has coworkers, it depends on whether or not I like them, too.

I'd still work, it's I enjoy a good job. So I'd take my time in finding one that I really liked. Heck I could finish all the schooling I want too and work with sharks like I've always wanted to

Of course.

Being rich does not guarantee you lifelong wealth if you do not secure it with earned assets. Of course, there are lots of avenues of work that don't seem like work, like being a board member of an organization, or even personal day trading. Both of which I would definitely do. I'd like to earn my respect and admiration, and not just have it handed to me on a silver platter, so work for me is inevitable.

Yes, I would still be working

But only part-time, and do something I actually like.

Yes. I would probably start a few projects (a designer line of clothing for petite men, help build schools in Costa Rica, set up some kind of scholarship or grants for students, maybe invest in an e-sports team?). I've been working since I was 15 and I think I would be too restless to not work. But with that kind of money and liberty to pursue actual passions, I would definitely try to find ways to do things that enrich others' lives.
