No two novels are the same; no two movies are exactly the same; and no two individuals or families are the same. Yet, if we were to examine a thousand wills, trusts, powers of attorney, and advance medical directives, stacked floor to ceiling – documents for the use and benefit of individuals, all of whom are unique – would we find that the documents are all different or largely the same? The answer is the latter – these documents would all largely be the same. Surprising? Not at all. Most people are victims of word processing and their own lack of knowledge that all estate planning documents can be customized. You don’t have to settle for this static and robotic approach – you have something to say and you can express it. Even if you don’t consider yourself creative, you don’t have to be – you can benefit from a series of exercises your estate planning attorney can lead you through designed to elicit thoughts, ideas, emotions, memories, instructions, goals, intentions, and ideals.
