Step 8 : Define Your Wishes

Thinking about what might happen and how we should prepare for it is something that none of us really want to do. However, if we don’t we run the risk of causing our surviving family unnecessary pain and suffering.

And it’s not just writing a Will or Estate Planning that we should be thinking about. There are Advance Health Care Directives, Living Wills, Ethical Wills, End-of-Life Wishes and so much more!

Take a look at the resources, books and sites below, or check out Chapter 9 in Your Legacy of Love to find out how you can be totally prepared, and in doing so gain peace of mind for yourself and reduce the risk of burdening your family with costs and decisions that will only add to their suffering.
