I recently received the following email from a long-time client:
“Can we set up a meeting time? I’d like to review plan options.
My friend died suddenly a month ago….no warning. She was 57 and gone, just like that. Shook me to the core.
Looking at making time to achieve a better life balance.”
Which brought to mind a quote from professional boxer Mike Tyson,
“Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.”
I don’t want to make light of their friend’s death, but the mortality of friends and family can often serve as a stark reminder that we only get one shot to make the most of our life.
And whether it’s death, a health scare, an accident or just the daily uncertainties that we all deal with, it can be a catalyst to reevaluate your life and how you want to live it.
