Step 3: Share Good Guidance

Genes ReunitedDuring our lifetime, we accumulate a great deal of wisdom, experience and knowledge. Wouldn’t it be awful if that were to go to waste and we failed to share it with someone?

The idea behind Good Guidance is to share our values, ideas, stories and wisdom with the next generation, to help them grow and wherever possible, avoid making the same mistakes that we did!

Capturing your guidance in a journal, as a blog, a series of audio recordings or even video’s can also help ensure that loved ones know what to do about practical, financial and emotional issues in your absence. Take inspiration from the film My Life and the books, resources and tools below.
