I discovered some very insightful work from a fellow financial planner, Ashby Daniels, out of the Pittsburg area. He formerly authored a blog (no longer active) where he talked about making risk tradeoffs and I thought this was a useful quote for all those nearing retirement:
“A risk that is temporary can’t matter that much in the grand scheme of a 30-year retirement.”
Keep that in perspective as current events unfold now and always.

An abundance of caution by Seth Godin
Favorite quote –
“We can always make a risk ever smaller. But the cost is that we will increase other risks. Please don’t avoid appropriate caution…”
