Three Questions to Start Life Planning

If properly introduced and attributed to George Kinder and Kinder Institute of Life Planning, media professionals may include our signature “Three Questions” in their stories about life planning.

Question One
Imagine that you are financially secure, that you have enough money to take care of your needs, both now and in the future. The question is: How would you live your life? Would you change anything? Let yourself go: Don’t hold back on your dreams. Describe a life that is complete, that is richly yours.

Question Two
Now imagine visiting your doctor, who tells you that you have only five-to-ten years left to live. The good news is that you won’t ever feel sick. The bad news is that you will have no notice of the exact moment of your death. What will you do in the time you have remaining to live? Will you change your life – and how will you do it?

Question Three
This time your doctor shocks you with the news that you have only one day left to live. It’s not about what you would do on that day. Notice what feelings arise as you confront your full mortality. Ask yourself: What did I miss? Whom did I not get to be? What did I not get to do?
