The Story of Your Life


All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on.

–  Henry Ellis

We recently had one of those moments when life asks you to break away and take stock of that “fine mingling”. Our very own Steve Pollock welcomed a new addition to his family – a beautiful baby girl.

We came upon the following video at a conference this past year. It speaks to this moment and gives us reason to pause and reflect on the true purpose of life. We would like to share it with you now.

Living with purpose requires engagement in reconciling the forces which enhance our lives with those that merely serve to distract. The mastery of learning what to hold on to and what to let go of is an art which Henry Havelock Ellis more eloquently shared in his famous quote.

As you give focus to your “art of living”, our purpose at Reason Financial is to enable you to make a lifetime of rational, informed, and well-reasoned financial decisions. We are fortunate to work with you, and appreciate being part of Your Reason. Thank you.
