How do you know what to do if you FIRE?

Been saving up for quite some time. Can afford to FIRE on very minimal expenses, probably in a few years. Work is sometimes very tiring, but I don’t know what to do if I FIRE.

The real problem is not that you need FIRE, but rather you need work that is meaningful, challenging and rewarding, then you don't want to FIRE.
