Imagine you suddenly won the lottery or perhaps a distant relative that you don't even know (just to keep this post happy) dies and leaves you an insane amount of money. I won't say how much but let's just say for the sake of this discussion you will be able to live comfortably for the rest of your life without worrying about a thing. You will be able to support your family and give you children a good education.... and there will even be enough left over to leave in your will for your kids when you die.
Ok you get the picture?
Would you still work or would you just be a person of leisure? If you keep working will you stay with what you are doing or would you change direction completely?
If you stop working what will you do with your time?
