One of the biggest myths – I hear people say a lot, “When I’m dead and I’m gone, it really doesn’t matter what happens with my stuff. It’s somebody else’s problem.” But I think if you look back over living and during your life, from the time you were young or became a parent, you always left instructions for the babysitter, or if you went out of town, you left instructions for the pet-sitter, whether you were gone for an hour or a couple weeks. So I think it’s really, really important and a part of being a responsible individual that when you’re going on a trip you’re never gonna return from, that you would leave some instructions to guide the people that you love.
