Well, this Financial Planner has new perspectives on risk and the idea of trust after this morning.
First, I was at the chiropractor’s office this morning and he adjusted my neck. So while I was lying down, my head completely in his hands, he made a quick motion to adjust my neck, which means he took my head and turned it very quickly. It’s quite a feeling, and probably not a whole lot different than the motion needed to break my neck.
I told him that my clients take a leap of faith when I make investments for them or plan their estates, but that I had just literally put my head in his hands. Apparently, I must trust him a lot to take that risk! That risk has already paid off, as I feel much better.
The second thing that gave me a new perspective was that I got a call a little later from my oldest daughter, who just turned 16. Today she passed the test for her driver’s permit. The risks and trust issues involved in that are only beginning..
