If you received enough money to never need to work again, what would you spend your time doing?
Studying/learning. Experimenting. Inventing. Spreading the love. Actively opposing the religious overthrow of the US government. Defending the rights of the poor, our minorities, and the ill. Last, but not least, running a free university that does not allow religion out of the broom closet.
If I were rich enough to never work and spend the rest of my life in leisure, I would do the following:
I would have a sanctuary for animals, in a beautiful setting. I do it now, but on a small scale. I would like to travel and there are so many people to help, if I could afford it. I would attend atheist/free though conferences around the country. I would travel and learn as much as possible, first hand.
ha, to me that is a trick question, I do not need money to not work again. The trick is that wealth is not what you have but what you are not in need of. Human friendly climate, freshwater, food, safety and so on don't need a lot of money. I have retired 7 times so far, 1st time I had not turned 30, I go back to work due to property settlements, or other needs come along, move to an area closer to where kids want to study and such. Get a job for a few years, clear all debts, make sure everything is in order and retire again. I volunteer 2 days a week, outside of that I restore native bushland and care for injured wildlife, I swim surf cycle, rollerblade and garden a lot of the time. I earn AUD $200 a week,(USD$155) and save 10% of that. I have never smoked or gambled, never taken an overseas holiday, not watched TV for over 30 years, but have no health probs except very much overweight, ok and now some sight issues due to 50 years of surfing. My kids are grown and live with me, my son is 31 and retired last week, he owns 1/2 this house, it is not luxury by any means, but it is functional. So back to answer the question, surf, cycle, rollarblade, garden and volunteer, save animals and restore then natural environment.
Philanthropy. Work with kids and at risk youth. Volunteer at a battered women's shelter.
Truth I would have tons of fun for awhile traveling the world doing cool shit I have always wanted to do but can't afford, buy the best guitars amps and PA equipment available. I could put together a baaad aaaasss band cause of my cash, the best around would want to be in the band for the upgrade in equipment transportation, ,lodging and honestly I am not an amateur by any means. Slowly the money supply and availability of expensive food drink sex and drugs would get the best of me and I would die like musicians fear to alone and sad in some hotel room somewhere that doesn't matter.
