World Building with no plot?

Have you ever come up with a great setting but don’t really have a plot for that setting so now you’ve created this world and don’t know what to do with it?

How do you get out of the habit? or have you ever forced a plot so that your setting can be used? @Writers

Hell yes, you force a plot into that world. Try starting small, character internalization…for example, if you made a magnificent ocean planet with underwater dome homes…and the main character is a sea slug with three pee- wait, ignore I said that. The point is that you can use that sea slug and find out what troubles that wonderful world you just made could give the little guy. If you want, you can even make a series out of it, exploring a new area of that world each time.
