Thanks to smart phones with cameras and videos, the paparazzi, and the Internet, there’s not much you can do anymore that isn’t subject to being scrutinized by, well, everyone. Celebrities know this all too well, which makes you wonder how they can ever leave the house at all. But Americans certainly seem to be glad that they do—if only to criticize what celebs are wearing, how they are aging, who they are eating with, and even what they are eating.
Luckily, for most of us, the scrutiny we face is not so extreme. But make no mistake… the world is watching you too—and they want to know if you will do something “worthy” with your wealth. The choices about how to distribute your possessions are only a small part of the issue. Right or wrong, the world has an expectation that you will “DO SOMETHING” with your wealth. This isn’t bad or good. It just… IS.
