What I saw once on tv somewhere, which might be a good idea if you have children later on, is that a dad wrote a book with advice for his children. You can buy these books and they have pre-printed questions and topics in them, for example about girls, drinking, driving, responsibility etc.
That way, if something happens, your child will always have something from you and will have your advice when it is growing up.
This is sometimes also done by patients with for example cancers, who are not sure if they will survive.
