[4/7 – Planning for the worst] Have you ever turned up for work or an event looking like a drowned rat because you were caught in a storm you hadn’t prepared for?
We haven’t had much rain in Sydney until this week so we’ve gotten out of the habit of planning for it. If getting cold and wet is the worst thing that happens to us, life isn’t so bad (although it feels pretty miserable at the time).
But I regularly see new clients who haven’t made contingency plans for more serious issues. They might be unlikely, but they can have significant financial implications for them (and their family) if things go wrong.
Sometimes it’s because they don’t know what they should be doing. Other times it’s because they fear the cost of protecting themselves will stop them doing something else that’s really important to them.
If you know a friend or family member who you think might need some help, please feel free to forward this to them – we’ve got a free tool we can share with them that can help them get started.
