Ted Williams may have been the most focused hitter to ever play major league baseball. His .344 career batting average and 521 home runs prove that the precise strategy he used to predict what pitch might come next and the precision he brought to the plate clearly worked for him. He was also the last player to ever hit .400 for a full season, finishing up at .406 after going 6-for-8 in a season-ending doubleheader—games he decided to play even though sitting out would have protected his exact .400 average.
Now that’s focus on an end goal. And if you are reading this, I bet you also know a lot about focus. It’s probably a big part of what helped you become successful and stay successful.
Yet, when it comes to wealth planning, few seem to understand that when your focus is off (even just a little) from where it needs to be, it can damage both your estate and your legacy. Too much planning is executed with a focus on tax advantages and not enough on life and family planning. This approach is just not working.
You’ve got too much on the line to lose your focus now. So what can you do? The first step is to talk to an expert who can show you how to combine the focus you need with the results you want.
Wealth is more than money. Don’t just plan for your future, live it right now. Pass it on and share the insights like this that you find valuable.
