rbroome my intention was not to ask what is the right answer for everyone. I was asking what is the right answer for you?

Maybe I should have put this in my OP, but imagine a Genie pops up and says "I will will give you $10M if you quit your job today and retire. Will you agree to that deal?" You say "Yes!" Then he turns around and says, "Hm, maybe only $9M." He keeps going lower. Would you would still retire at $9M, then $8M, then $7M....? When is the lowest number?

I find it interesting that the number is very different for everyone because of many different factors. Age, responsibilities, cost of living, lifestyle, boredom, how much they hate/love their work or commute.

It is interesting to me that some people would still work if they were handed 4, 5 or even 10 million. While others wouldn't even bother to pick up the phone and tell their employer goodbye.
