    No, I wouldn't quit my job. That's the short answer. I'd keep it quiet, not change my lifestyle, and slowly adjust to the new wealth over time.

    No, I enjoy my job. So no to quiting. But it will surely change my lifestyle though.

    But actually I'd want to get the job first, then I can intelligently decide what I would want to do with it.

    And the third possible solution to this problem whether to job or not to job after winning that amount is to wait until that becomes the case but inform your boss and coworkers that you are in transition and they should be ready to party because you're actually looking for the best software to print the invitations as soon as the news come in....

    LOL   I got a pic of a part of it already, you have to start small...

    No, I am working not solely for money. There are many things in my job could be bought with money.

    You need to remember that these types of income get taxed at the highest levels. You might only see $600K of that $1MM after taxes.

    If after adding $600K to your total assets, is deemed to be enough to live on for the rest of your life, and you did not have any interest in continuing to work, then maybe you might want to consider retirement at that point...

    Hell yes.
    I'd invest most of it and continue to do my own thing..

    I'd bank some, invest some, gift some, pay off some bills and continue to work, mainly for the insurance and other benefits. However, I wouldn't feel the financial pressure to stay in any one position and probably shorten my hours.

    A million isn't really that much money, especially once it's been taxed. If I somehow obtained a million dollars, I would invest a lot of it in carefully researched stocks, move from my current home, and I'd pay for any debts. Also, I would invest some of it in stocks for my family. Otherwise, I would not change very much.

    No , why should I if I like it in the first place? I would rather invest and earn more and out of my gains , I would also help those in need.

    I would certainly never work for someone else ever again.

    After buying a nice house, I would devote the free time I suddenly have to learning how to program Iphone applications.

    A really successful Iphone ap can generate even more income and my financial empire would be built entirely on creative projects.
