An article from Forbes online says there are four tasks to complete before death:
- Estate planning- who gets what and how, who carries out the terms of your will. A surprising number of people who need to do planning postpone it, sometimes until it’s too late. Nothing is more chaotic than leaving it to the next generation to sort out.
- Life and health- prepare an advance healthcare directive or living will to explain how you want your final illness to be handled.
- Bury the hatchet- Reach out and reconcile, repair bonds that have severed.
- Bucket list- If there are things you want to do, get busy doing them.
