It's amazing how little we think about time. It seems like we rush from appointment to appointment, meeting to meeting, event to event, always worrying about making it on time. It's easy to think, "I have to make it to court by 9:00," or "I can't miss that 3:00 with my new client." The larger concept of time, though, seems to be much more elusive. I regularly hear the following statement from clients who have a loved one who has either been hospitalized with a serious illness or has died: "We talked about getting things ready, but we thought we would have more time." Please don't wait. Take the time to complete a Power of Attorney and to draft a will, and don't forget to include a Living Will so your loved ones know your wishes. Nearly every interdiction that I do starts with a family member saying, "We should have done something about this earlier." Failing to take these steps makes it so much harder on the ones you love. Don't let time pass you by.
