what is philotimo (φιλότιμο)
Philotimo is the recognition that your behavior reflects upon you, upon your family, your community, your country, and your heritage – it’s a deep-seated awareness in the heart that motivates the good that a person does.
Philotimo Inspired Planning is about family and doing the right thing – what is good, right, and honorable for one’s family.
No one knows when they will die or what the future may hold. Taking positive action to address one’s mortality or incapacity requires courage and self-sacrificing love towards one’s family. Doing the right thing for your family requires asking difficult and important questions. Philotimo Inspired Planning seeks to preserve a family’s true wealth – their intellectual, spiritual and human capital, as well as, financial capital.
