The very first thing that popped into my head, and heart was; then I would be able to find more ways to help others who do not have enough.
Boredom is not a problem ever. I can always entertain myself. Sometimes I exhibit tendencies of ADD. Sweetsusieg first published the "shiny things" problem, I am in complete agreement.
We only have a certain allotment of seconds and minutes in each day. Mine is probably an odd-ball opinion, but I do not think, human beings going faster is the solution to humankind's destiny. Are we so desperate to go faster, that we are mashing atoms? Slowing down, and caring for our local areas is a wise course to consider.
For those who feel they have everything they need, to keep from get bored, they can cure that boredom by getting involved with helping to spread resources to others. The community, neighbors, the Village. .

There were sure times, I did not think I had everything I needed.
The kicker is I survived. Making it to five decades, made me realize I did get what I needed every day I witnessed another Sunrise, or Afternoon sounds.

If a person owns a decent small business, they often pay their employees better than the big outlets?
Philanthropists are the ultra wealthy who use their freedom to develop in other aspects of society, by helping those less fortunate. The many who do not have everything they need. The Administrative Assistant that has one child, and takes home enough from her much deducted paycheck, to feed her child, but not her all the time.
