The “Good Life”

The other day, there was an very to-the-point article published on the “Good Life”. Interesting enough to think about and reflect – are you living the “Good Life”?

The “off-the-top-of-the-head” responses many people made when asked this question are obvious and expected – – family, good friends, good health, financial security, travel. But as people thought further their answers evoke deeper needs – – love, purpose, giving back, serenity, compassion, peace, passion in life and work, balance. The list grew longer the more they reflected. The thing for each of us is to ask ourselves: – honestly – if you, me, and the people we know well, are we living the “Good Life” ?

Are those elements listed above an important part of your life?

If not, why not?

We are often told to “re-balance” our portfolios to reflect our changing financial needs – – why not the same about your life as you mature???

It is fair to say that it is a good idea to check in and, if need be, make a course correction on your way to the “Good Life”.

    Thanks for the thoughts and the pictures. I do need to course correct. Change is not always easy for me though.

  2. It is never easy for most people, but the option is to do nothing and have your life continue on the same path as it has been. We don’t do that with finances when the market tells us to change strategies – that would not be beneficial to us – now would it?
