31. First things first: put $20 million into accounts that will disgorge, say, $2500/week

Before you go on a philanthropic rage or start a bunch of businesses or bankroll the next great talent, make damn good and sure you never, ever HAVE to work again. If you were to take $20 million - which is what, about fifteen percent of what you'd receive from the lottery? - and put it in, say, ten different accounts that each disbursed $250 per week into a checking account from which you'd live on, you would among other things never wind up on any "don't play the lottery because you'll eventually blow it all and have to declare bankruptcy" tv programs.
