Estate Planning is a lot Like Potty Training
Estate planning is a lot like potty training.
I know this for two reasons.
First, I know estate planning. I’m an estate planning attorney. That’s all we do here.
Second, I know potty training. I just started potty training my third kid.
The similarities are mind blowing…
First, no one wants to do their estate plans. They don’t like to think about death or the family drama that will be caused when they die, or they just don’t have the time to do the work.
Parents also usually don’t want to potty train. There is pee and poo poo all over the place. They don’t like to think of the family drama that will be caused, or they just don’t have the time to do the work.
Second, and this is the good part, when you are done with estate planning, you feel good. You feel like you’ve accomplished something.
You know your family is safe.
You know your kids will be raised by the people you want.
And the same goes for potty training.
Your kids beam with pride once they get the hang of it. Family outings are more fun because there are no more dirty diapers.
Come to think of it, life is more fun because there are no more dirty diapers.
Third, and finally, for both, when you are done, you look back and realize the experience really wasn’t that bad.
And, if you use a firm like ours, you might even look back on the experience fondly…
Don’t delay. Potty train (and get your estate plan done).
