Feeling stuck between knowing and not knowing can be disconcerting, especially when the dichotomy is stark. Looking back, perhaps we’ve come to terms with the economic, social, and global health events of 2020, reaching an understanding of what happened and where we stand. Maybe that’s comfortable right now. Looking ahead, we’re setting our expectations for 2021. Sure, we can base those on well-vetted assumptions and informed decisions, and we can hope, but we can’t know. That’s uncomfortable. In such times, fall back on your principles. You’ve expressed them in your whole-life financial plan, so rely on it and what we know about connecting our money and our values to guide you through inevitable change.
