What is it that makes us fiercely independent individuals say we are not ready for something? Remember when we were young and playing with friends or on the playground we heard the saying, “Get ready, get set, go”?
Once we pass age 65 or 70, we may find that managing life requires more dependence than we want to admit; our mindset is “not ready” for that. Being ready does not necessarily mean “go” – it means getting your ducks in a row. It is the “get set” part of the equation – not necessarily the need to take immediate action, but to make plans for those “what ifs.”
