I would redefine my (financial) goals.
Continue working, possibly switching careers, start my own business, start making riskier investments with a safe amount of my portfolio, etc.
The flaw in this question is that it assumes my goals are static. I prefer to keep them changing and always 5, 10, 20 years out. Never really achievable since they keep adapting to changing circumstance.
Move to a new country, build a large, isolated mansion and live like a recluse.
Well if I am financially secure I would vagabond it up, go from state to state, hit up canada, south america (i wanna see the salt flats so bad) europe, asia, and africa last. I always wondered what life be like as a traveling homeless man with money. I know you said we already traveled but screw your rules in my fantasy I didn't.
Well, shit. If I've already traveled....
I think I would probably start taking a lot of classes in things that I never knew how to do. Like architecture courses, mathematics, business. Then I would start building places. Dwellings probably, or maybe a library/bookstore, or even a small theatre - but always something kind of quirky. Trying to get adults to let their imagination run wild. I would really want to find a way to help other people start businesses. The obligatory novel writing would happen, I like to pretend. Photography, books, clothes, various arts and crafts. Maybe by this time I can also start exercising like I should.
That's close to what I already do.
I think if I ever achieved that much, it'd be a miracle. Should it happen, though? I would simply read as many books as I could stuff into my head--excluding authors like...Stephanie Meyer or Nicholas Sparks. I suppose when I'm not reading, I can spend the extra time hating these crappy authors...that sounds about right...or...OR I could read ALL their work, write up a really detailed paper on every stupid little thing, good (*snort*) and bad about their work, refine it into an argument to why they should either quit writing or try harder, and then submit it to them via USPS in a thin leather-bound volume with the title embossed on the front in gold leaf.
1) Indulge in all sorts of madness which I could not do earlier.
2) Pick up new hobbies and change them as and when my mood permits.
3) Write a book.
4) If I am too bored, I would rather prefer to die.
In fact I am always scared that I will end up getting bored once I have done everything in my life. Boredom has haunted me all my life for a major part of it because my mind is always hungry and nothing seems to satiate it for long. I have a dream of living up to only 60 years because after that I cannot imagine living being dependent on others(physically due to ill health).
I'd definately write a book and set up some kind of foundation, then spend moi days researching for moi book and managing the foundation.
