ONE Make a start. Think about what priorities you have for your family and your practice and make a list; what do you need to do to make them a reality? Above all, make a decision to get your affairs in order; stop telling yourself you haven't got time or it'll keep until later. Get it off your 'to do' list and enjoy the feeling of satisfaction and peace of mind.
TWO Using your priorities, identify the top issues that are worrying you and need solving. Identify what sort of solution might be most appropriate, such as insurances, preparing a will, or sorting out the ownership of your property.

THREE What's next for your career? Are you pushing at the door of partnership? Do you need to borrow? What is the offer likely to be and does it work for you financially?
FOUR Are you thinking of popping the question? Do you need a prenuptial agreement or a living together agreement? Have you been married before and need to look after your children? Get down on paper a list of what your assets are and where to find them: property, accounts, investments etc. and what each asset is approximately worth.

FIVE Thinking about having children? What do you need to do to ensure they're provided for when you're gone? Are there any special circumstances, such as a disability, that you need to consider?
SIX If you have a business, could you expand, merge with another practice or join a collaborative network? What corporate structure or governance agreement do you need? How do you overcome the 'boiling frogs' feeling and offer an attractive employment proposition?
