This thread and poll assumes that you are a full time working individual. The question is, 'If you were presented with scenario of either working your current job or quiting with the guarantee of being paid regularly a certain amount of money for the rest of your life, but it was a lesser amount than you make working; how much of a cut would you be willing to take to quit your job?
It's easier to put in a fictional situation. Pretend you make $60K a year and work at least 40 hours a week. Would you be willing to quit and only get paid $30K a year, but be set for life on that amount? You'd probably have to give up some luxuries that you enjoy on a $60K salary, but you'd be free to spend every minute of every day as you wish. Do you want to stay home with kids? Ride your bike every day? Travel? Do yard work? It's up to you.
The difficult scenario is if you absolutely love your job and can see yourself doing that for the rest of your life. I guess if this is you then good for you. I doubt many people are in this situation. That brings up a whole different topic for another time.
The other flaw in this poll will be if you make very little, and sacrificing a large part of your income would put you well into poverty. Someone making $1 million could effectively sacrifice 90% of their income and still make more than someone who makes 'just' 90K and would be willing to sacrifice only 10% of their income to retire.
Still, I'll pose the question and discussion. What percentage of your income would you be willing to live off of if it meant you would never have to work again?
