If, for longer than you care to remember now, you’ve carried around the unaccomplished goal of getting your Will done or updated – make 2020 the year your resolve to make your Will. Break as many other resolutions as you want. But in this blog I must talk to you about THE one resolution you mustn’t break. So be sure you make your Will in 2020!
New Year resolutions. We’ve been making them and breaking them since time immemorial. As the ever-faithful Wikipedia points out, the ancient Babylonians did it. The Romans began each year by making promises to the god, Janus, from whom January gets its name. The Mediaeval era saw knights, at the end of each Christmas season, take the ‘peacock vow’ to reaffirm their commitment to chivalry. And we’re still making them – and breaking them – all these centuries later. But I have to talk to you about one resolution you should absolutely make – and absolutely not break. That of getting your Will done!
