"The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry!" is an old and unfortunately true statement. And "best laid plans" often "go awry" for two reasons. 1) poor planning...or no planning, and 2) people don't work collaboratively to create solutions that work for all concerned. Both are a result of human error. And both are avoidable. But we all know that within families and friends differing points of view on how to solve a problem can wreck havoc on the best relationships. And that is most unfortunate, because it is different points of view that often help create the best plans. But that rarely happens without deliberate effort. And when it does happen it is cause for celebration! So...how do you plan for the future anticipating the kerfuflfes that are likely to ocurr? One way is to work with an experienced and compassionate attorney. Someone who knows the "ins and outs" of disability planning and is sensitive to your needs. The other is through a trusted 3rd party who can "step into the gap" before a conflict arises and empower individuals to recognize and solve conflict before it sinks the ship! We hope you enjoy today's episode about creating collaborative trusts as much as we enjoyed creating it for you!
