If this year has taught us anything, it is that life is uncertain. Through this lens, I have started to abandon some conservative personal finance principles. This summer, I went against the adage of "staying the course" with retirement and sold some stocks. I also bought a house in what can be considered a risky environment. To date, I have no regrets.
In my latest move away from what many financial experts preach, I have forgone the aspiration of leaving a financial legacy.
