We tend to reaffirm the things we know we need to get done by making resolutions for the new year. Unfortunately, we often resolve to do the things we know we should do, and then do other things. Luckily there are some things on which we can procrastinate and not have to suffer the consequences! For example, estate planning.

Procrastinating on your estate plan can result in your family spending large amounts of your hard-earned wealth in order to take care of you if you become incapacitated late in life. However, it won’t bother you; you’re incapacitated! If things are a complete mess after your death, and as a result your children and other family members never speak to each other again, it won’t bother you; you’re dead! If large amounts of your estate are used up in unnecessary fees and costs after your death, it won’t bother you; you’re dead! If you wanted your children to share equally in your estate, but instead a large portion went to only one child, it won’t bother you; you’re dead!

While these things won’t bother you after you’re disabled or you’re dead, if they bother you now, why are you resolving to worry about them for another 365 days? Do something about it!

We are confident that taking the time to do your estate planning won’t make you die any sooner, and we are confident it won’t make you live any longer. But we do know for certain that a properly designed and implemented estate plan will make life a whole lot easier on your family, both emotionally and financially. So instead of making an empty resolution, why don’t you take the action necessary to get your estate plan in order. Call it a gift to your family.
