Yes. You now have the luxury of working because you enjoy what you're doing instead of working to pay the bills. If working is not an option, finding an activity to occupy for time is essential.
For sure. After all, work can provide meaning in life. I would definitely still work, but on my own terms.
Take for example, the need to take the MRT at peak hours. As a daily user of public transport, I find that taking the train at peak hour and looking at many bored faces looking at their handphones quite depressing.
Additionally from a bigger picture level, we still need to find and live out our lives purpose. That usually comes from work, not idling.
Work does not just contribute money. It is also a source of meaning for some people. In 2-factor job satisfaction literature. External factors like pay and benefits are considered as "hygiene factors". One will not be dissatisfied if the amount of it is sufficient. On the other hand, there are the so-called motivators like job meaning. With sufficient job meaning, one would most likely continue to stay at work. Meaning could derive from many different factors. e.g. nature of work (e.g. doctors), able to contribute their wisdom despite older age (e.g. professors). For me, I would try to stay in work force as long as I could if I believe I could continue to contribute my expertise.
I would prefer using the time to learn new stuff like martial arts, music, professional gamer and even help out in charity.
Depends on what one wants? For me, if money is sufficient, perhaps i would work part time to past time, keep myself relevant to the society and have my brain working. In that way, i could have more time to do things i really wanna do. :)
Yes, in the sense, no longer work for money, but turn my passion to a free lance job - earning some extra bucks while keeping my brain active :P
Priority will be spending more time with the family and travelling around to see the world.
No, at least not in the corporate sense. Will use the time to travel, devour my library backlog, spend more time in ministry and with my maker. Perhaps start a book and do some mentoring others as well if schedule permits.
Having enough for everything we need, I won't work for $ anymore. I'll go out daily to do whatever necessary means to make this world a better place, thru educations, sharing, teaching , mentoring etc.
