I am involved in a not for profit (i.e. no income!) local history project. We are building a great resource website that offers massive amounts of information on our local area. My colleague in this project retired about five years ago after making a pile and he now spends much of his time researching the information for our website. We get great feedback form all over the world.
I also do the website for two clubs that where I am a member. Wehn I have time I work on these and that gives me a lot of satisfaction. I believe that these websites add to our community. You could try doing something like that?
I watched a documentary on telivision on Sunday night about a lady from NZ who lives in Fiji. She retired after making a lot of money building furniture for Ikea in her own factory. She has now taken on the full time care of three young people with mental and physical and is working towards raising money to build a refuge for other similar kids.
She probably works harder now than she ever did but it was obvious from watching and listening to her that she really loves what she is doing. What she is doing is perhaps a bit extreme but I think doing any kind of worthwhile charity work would be good for you.
