You may procrastinate many things you know you must do, such as starting a diet, going to the doctor or catching up with old friends. There are many reasons why you might put off doing your taxes. It is time-consuming, confusing and the outcome may cost you money. Postponing important activities means increasing the risk that things will go badly or that you will miss your opportunity altogether and it will be too late to complete the task.
Estate planning is like that too. Fewer than 50 percent of adults have a plan in place for the end of their lives, and you may be among them. Sure, you have a lot of good reasons, and you are not alone. Your reasons are likely similar to those of most people in Arizona who still haven't made their plans. However, if something should happen to you before you create an estate plan, you may leave behind confusion and conflict for your family to suffer through.
