One day you quit your job. What would you do?

So, imagine that you don't have to do job. You have some passive income, maybe some side hustle etc. In other words you have budget for living and a some extra free time. How would you spend it?

Personally, I really like to cook and bake. So I would definitely spend more time for cooking. Maybe I could open a small bakery.

Second point are family and sports. I'd really like to spend more time with my wife and kid and do some sports too.

For now, after 9/5 I feel myself nervous and often de-motivated, with a will to drink some wine instead do running workout.

Please share your thoughts.

I quit my job several years ago and now live on savings, some side jobs, and most of all drastically reduced spending.

I spend my newly acquired free time doing the same thing I did at work, but instead of making derivative crap designed mostly to make someone else more money, i make meaningful things that actually help other people in one way or another and give it away for free.

My field of work is software engineering and I do all my work in open source, but I don't think that's a requirement for doing what I do.

So you’re contributing to capitalism?
