Have you ever known you need to achieve some result but since you’ve got No Clue the steps you need to take to get there you do… nothing?
This might be scheduling a medical procedure, helping your kid apply for college, making a major purchase, or getting your will done.
You know you need to take care of your estate planning and yet there are so many steps – steps you don’t even know what they are – you end up putting it off for months or years.
Congratulations! You’re human!
And you’re falling victim to the #3 reason people don’t do their Will.
As I previously shared, nearly 70% of adults have not done their Wills and do not have any planning in place. Seventy percent! Think about that.
After doing a super informal, highly unscientific survey, I found that nearly every answer I received fell into one of three buckets. The really crazy part is that all three reasons are FALSE! False beliefs are keeping people from making sure they or their families are protected, no matter what and no matter when.
Remember, the point of estate planning, or Good Guardian Planning as I like to call it, is to give us a say over who we want to count on if we’re ever sick or when we pass away. It’s about deciding before it’s too late who’s gonna do what, and when.
Those can feel like really big decisions. And while there is some thought and planning that needs to go into it, it doesn’t need to be overwhelming. Listen, we’re the only species on Earth capable of contemplating our demise. That’s cool and awful all at the same time. I get it.
But here’s the thing, you don’t have to have everything figured out before calling your lawyer! Not only is your Good Guardian Planning lawyer an advisor, they’re an expert! Your lawyer can help you figure out the decisions where you might be stuck.
Remember all those questions and steps that you can’t see?
