Every year, I always come up with New Year’s resolutions and goals for myself. As I was thinking about it this week, I realized that, for the very first time, I couldn’t think of anything new to accomplish in the new year that I wasn’t already doing. This is unusual for me as I always think of new ways to improve my life, my health, and my bank account.
But there is something that’s really important and something that only someone who is practical (and getting older!) like myself would think about: making arrangements with an attorney to set up a revocable living trust, a durable power of attorney for health care, and a financial power of attorney. This is something I’ve been meaning to do for a very long time and, since this is a lean year for resolutions anyway, this one seems easily achievable.
Here are a few very helpful books I’m consulting:

How about you? Resolutions, anyone?
