Or maybe I was just thinking he needed to grow up!
"Forward thinking and prudence" is footnoted with "e.g. paying taxes, insurance, complying with the law - not necessarily doing it all yourself, but clearly pass responsibility over to your wife." (And I think his wonderful wife actually does take care of that sort of thing for him. )
What constitutes growing up?
GOOD DECISION MAKING
- identifying possible sets of action.
- possible sets of outcome.
INDEPENDENT & RATIONAL THINKING
- developing helpful habits.
- providing/protecting - forward thinking & prudence.
- good driver.
I can think of so many people - and not all of them young- that I wish would grow up this way, but it doesn't seem to be the fashion these days. Sigh....
