Pick and Choose Your Battles

In life the smartest move you can make is to pick and choose your battles. It is not always easy but it is the best approach. There are indivivduals who will argue and fight over almost anything. They are the people who feel it is imperative that they are always right and know all the answers. If you have the audacity to disagree, an argument ensues. These are the individuals who are impertent, rude, and insolent just to mention a few acts of their behavior. If you decide to fight with a person, always make sure you have all of your data and you are absolutely sure you are right. Many people argue about small items and then when something huge arises, they are completely lost. Let me give you an example which is from my everyday life. A clien’ts parent may pass away. One of his or her children is in charge. However, no one cares and the arguments begin. Now this is a large battle. If the beneficiaries have argued about the small things such as inexpensive items in the home, by the time they reach the serious issues, they are at a loss. Plus, you must include the fact that the Successor Trustee of the Trust or the Executor of the Will, will have little or no patience and will not tolerate their behavior.  The fact that people squabble about minor issues is foolish and a waste of time. When confronted with a major issue, they are not only at a loss but whomever is handling a situation will literally have no patience and will do the bare minimum. Not to mention, if they can find a way they will eliminate the beneficiary’s gift.  As teenagers we learned early on to pick and choose our battles. If we wanted to use the family car, we learned not to squabble about curfews.  Using the car was a priority. Do you pick and choose your battles so that in the long run it makes your life easier?
