Everyone dreams of how their life would be if they didn’t have to work for a living. A user in a popular internet community asked: What would you do with your time if you didn’t have to work for money?
The varied responses showcase the best of humanity. People would help each other or create masterpieces. They’d self-actualize and find meaning in their lives.
Working Holds Us Back
The responses betray the secret truth governments and corporations don’t want us to know: Working for a living holds us back.
Humanity could create so much more if our basic needs were met.
Here are the best responses.
Feed the World
One user said they’d spend time planting vegetables, trees, and other edible plants everywhere possible.
“I wouldn’t stop until food was growing everywhere,” they said.
Travel is always a top response to questions like this, highlighting humanity’s drive for exploration. People long to experience the world, immerse themselves in different cultures, and gain a deeper understanding of the human condition.
Some would spend their time caring for those who can’t care for themselves. Millions of dogs and cats need homes, and far too many ignore their plight.
It’s impossible to consider the suffering of other creatures when we can barely take care of ourselves.
One person wants to explore their creativity. If they didn’t have to worry about earning a living, they’d set up a machine shop and make custom designs for people who’d truly appreciate the work.
Make Video Games
How many amazing games were never created because the person with the story didn’t have time to develop it?
One user said he and his girlfriend have the combined skills to make a game (programmer and writer), but neither has the time to turn their vision into reality.
Many people would still work if they didn’t have to, but they’d do it for a cause rather than a paycheck.
Do you ever wonder if the greatest scientific minds of our era were stifled because they couldn’t afford to attend university? Some people would explore fields they love and engage in world-changing research.
There’s so much to discover in life. If we had all the money in the world, we’d spend our days immersed in all of it. Perhaps we’d spend a few years mastering martial arts before joining an atelier to learn how to draw.
The options for self-exploration through learning are endless when you don’t have to worry about earning a dollar.
Some folks would spend their time making stuff and learning how to make more stuff. First, they’d dabble in crochet, then learn how to make pottery. They’d create impressive works of decorative art that we can’t even imagine.
Many folks are too tired from working to give their kids the time they deserve. If they didn’t have to work, they’d focus on giving their kids the best of themselves.
