You Can Learn What You Shouldn’t Do

| Jan 6, 2018 | Estate Plan |

Pay attention to elderly family members and make some notes on estate planning.

As you watch events unfold in your family, you might notice what the elderly family members do. It might be a good place to learn what you should and perhaps what you shouldn’t do and apply the experience to your life, according to The New York Times in “Things I’ll Do Differently When I’m Old.”

The author of the story suggests that people keep a list of things they would do differently than their relatives. Writing a list down might make it more likely that people will remember the lessons they are learning.

Another way people can learn from the mistakes of elderly family members is by taking note of what happens, if those family members pass away without an estate plan or if they do not have end-of-life directives, such as powers of attorney. The problems that can result should be powerful lessons.

An estate planning attorney can advise you on creating an estate plan that fits your unique circumstances.
