Most of the high-income Americans who took a recent life planning survey told the survey team that they’re good at just about everything.
But some admitted that they’re not as organized as they could be.

Everplans runs an online document vault service, which can help people save and organize photos and documents.
It commissioned a survey, of about 1,000 U.S. adults, that was conducted in late April.
The goal was to see how COVID-19 is affecting the participants’ efforts to plan for the unexpected.
Abby Schneiderman, Everplans’ chief executive officer, said in a comment included in the survey report release announcement that preparing for the unexpected helps people regain a sense of control when the unexpected happens.
The survey findings, and the COVID-19 crisis, “are a reminder of how important it is for all of us to be well-prepared for unexpected events,” Schneiderman said.
One section of the Everplans survey report breaks out the answers by household income.
Everplans attracted about 205 participants in the top income category, for people with $100,000 or more in annual household income.
The survey team presented a list of five major preparation activities and asked the participants, “For each of the following you are responsible for, how well would you say you do them?”
