Four Questions you should Answer
Dated: November 29 2020
For most of my career I traveled a great deal and Thanksgiving marked the period at the end of the year that I traveled less and spent more time at home with family. I moved to Fort Myers Florida in 1990 and now my extended family is more spread out across the states. I spend less time making memories now and more time recalling them. When I was younger it seemed that News Year’s eve was the dawn of a new chapter; but for years it was that third Thursday in November when I began summarizing and reflecting on the current year and planning for the next.
As some one wise than me said, “It’s never too late to take a first step”
I had a passion for real estate since my first acquisition in 1977 and my weekly “newsletter” is about real estate. So, what should you be doing to get your proverbial real estate related house in order? I have a few suggestions this Thanksgiving.
Next, I have four questions I believe you should answer for yourself and your family:
1. What would you do if you had all the time and money that you would ever need?
2. How and where would you live if you knew you had only five to ten years to live?
3. What would you regret not having done if you died tomorrow?
And most importantly”
This end of year season think about those questions. You are never too old and never too young to begin. Tomorrow is not promised. My friend Terri Manning is fond of telling me that if I want to hear God laugh, tell her your plans. What she means is that we cannot predict the changes that will have a life altering effect on us. (Like a pandemic, or planes flying into buildings, or a death of a loved one).
