Why We Hate Packing

Do you dread packing? Most of us do and I think it comes down to that single question that we have to ask ourselves over and over again…

What do I need to bring?

Something happens to us when we hear that, we freeze and end up starring at the suitcase for an hour and then give up and hope that someone else will pack for us. (Even though our flight leaves in a few hours.)

Enter the Packing List

I used to think that packing lists were just for big trips and vacations, not for regular business trips, especially if you do them all the time.

But think about pilots and how they perform a pre-flight checklist before every single flight and it's written down! Why? Because there are so many things to check and inspect it would be easy to forget something. So a checklist is an easy and fast way to go through a procedure and make sure you don't forget anything.

Benefits of a Packing List

In my blog post, Power of the Packing List, we reviewed just how beneficial this tool can be for us frequent fliers.

  • Prevents you from forgetting something
  • Speeds up the packing process
  • Make the list once and forget it
