Fall is the best time of year. The weather turns crisp, the leaves turn color and the sports calendar turns to football season.

No well-coached football team would ever consider heading into a season without a detailed playbook. The playbook sets the overall strategy for how the team will attack its opponents and provides the tactics for how to accomplish the team’s goals. A painstaking amount of time is spent devising the playbook and practicing the plays over and over until the team operates like a well-oiled machine. All of this for a game.

In contrast, it’s striking how many lawyers approach their retirement with very little preparation. Unlike football, retirement is not a game, and the consequences for lack of preparation are much more significant.
