You might work diligently at building a financial roadmap for your retirement years and a comprehensive estate plan.
But you can’t just create these strategies — you also have to communicate them.
Specifically, you need to inform your spouse and your grown children what you have in mind for the future —because the more they know, the fewer the surprises that await them down the road.
Now that we’re well into autumn, the days are getting noticeably shorter. The change in seasons reminds us that time is passing — and it’s important to use that time wisely. When used well, in fact, time can be your greatest gift in many walks of life — and that’s certainly true when you invest.
Are you under stress? Who isn’t? We live in stressful times. We can learn to manage our stress, so that we feel: refreshed and renewed, instead of frazzled; in control, instead of hassled; calm, instead of nervous; at peace, instead of angry; and alive, instead of burned out.
This article reflects some of my research on stress management. It is dedicated to all of us who want a new and better life for the rest of this year.
