Something about the cold dead of winter inspires us to start turning our new year into yet another checklist: gym-worthy abs, new bedtime, cut back on XYZ, and so on. While some people find the magic formula, or simply a hidden reservoir of willpower, statistics show that not all of us actually resolve our resolutions. You know, like starting the quest for better health coverage.
Well, what good is a magic formula or a ton of willpower when our New Year’s Resolutions look like this:
We aren’t going to list the x-amount of qualities that insurance companies are looking for. We are rooting for you to become the person you want to be--whether that’s signing up for Muay Thai or switching out the cigarettes for chewing gum, or whatever it is you want/don’t want in your life. In the face of distraction, excitement, and holiday mayhem, there is only one course we can recommend and--surprise--getting an insurance quote is just an afterthought.
This is the one goal we can honestly recommend:
Prepare? Shorter lives? What do we mean?
Ever notice that we have grand plans but our execution is either spotty or excruciatingly difficult? Preparing involves a lot more than writing down “Buy milk. Get an insurance quote. Go to the gym.” Preparing means taking care of one thing, and then that one thing takes care of the rest. For example, setting out gym clothes is a lot more definite and really almost as easy as writing down “go to the gym.” Clicking on one of our insurance quote links is even easier than writing down “get an insurance quote.”
Notice how this one goal doesn’t really limit us, either. Some people are afraid of taking on too much and will indefinitely put off “excess” goals. They spend their lives planning (mental) instead of preparing (physical) and look at life like a timeline with only a few notches left (a.k.a., the short life). So they never pick up a brush, or try out the drums, or begin a collection. Or, you know, start the quest for better health coverage.
This year, don’t decide. Let your goals resolve themselves. Instead of serving that ballooning list of goals, let those goals (all the goals--the non-smoking, the martial arts, the drums, the catching up on your movie backlog, the what-have-you) serve the better narrative: the story where you, your loved ones, and your work are taken care of.
You know what insurance is really good for? It’s one decision that you make that allows you to not think about it anymore (unlike the gym and the grocery). That’s it. You’re covered. Your family’s covered. Your work’s covered. It’s not on your shoulders anymore; insurance serves you, not the other way around.
This time of year, there is celebrating to do. There’s the pressure to decide. You’ll see links and ads pushed in your face, and we know we aren’t the exception. We’d like to think that we keep things simple and friendly, though. You can start with a free, no-obligations quote and go from there. We know you’ll find what’s best for you. That’s what New Year’s resolutions are all about, anyway.
