  1. Good financial planning requires systems and processes that are customized to the personalities of individual clients.
  2. Financial planning and estate planning are exercises in risk management.
  3. Customization to a client’s personality means recognizing and implementing methodologies for dealing with cognitive dissonance and biases, not avoiding them.
  4. The primary goal of financial planning is to establish economic resilience, to protect one’s lifestyle and the lifestyles of those you care about.
  5. Everything is contextual – financial and investment decisions aren’t made in a vacuum.
