Life Events
Events occur throughout life, and some events have greater importance than others. When considering possible future events, there are several questions you may wish to answer.
  • What is the probability of this event occurring?
  • When in life is this event most likely to occur?
  • What impact will this event have on my life?
  • Is this a positive or negative event or a turning point?
Below is a list of common events that often occur during specific life stages. These may help you as you plan for the next stage in your life. At the same time, consider events that may occur in the lives of your parents and your children, as what happens in their lives may impact your life as well.
