When Jordan Grumet was a child, his dad died unexpectedly.
That was decades ago.
Jordan is a father today, but he thinks often about the possibility of dying young.
And he wonders how to balance enjoying today vs. saving for tomorrow, given that none of us know how long we’ll be on this earth.
How do we think about our lives when the clock starts to run out?
Beyond money, what other tools can we use to live a fulfilling life?
