“Thought for the Day” #802 – by Stephen R. Elville, J.D., LL.M.

The planning process is unfair. There are sometimes no second chances, and experience shows that where someone is suffering from the frailties of age or serious illness, there is often less time available for the completion of planning (prior to death) than the average person realizes. To compensate for this human blind spot, it is nearly always a good idea to accelerate planning under such circumstances and resist the temptation to take a measured, unhurried approach. There will be time for rest and reflection – after the planning is done.
