Do You Carry Excess Baggage? (post by Kirk Weisler)


After 20 years of traveling professionally I have learned a lot about packing light.  And I have seen a good share of people bring along a couple of bags “just in case”stuff often paying $50 to check these bags so they’ll have a $25 item if it’s needed.  They have also told me that actually use less than 1/3rd of what they pack.  Then there’s my wife’s cousin Vanessa who somehow managed to travel to 7 countries with a back pack designed for college books.  (And she always seemed to look great as she traveled light and lived free.)

“All of us carry excess baggage around from time to time, but the wisest ones among us don’t carry it around for very long.  They get rid of it.  Some of it you have to get rid of without really solving the problem.  Some things that ought to be put in order are not put in order because you can’t control them.  Often, however, the things we carry are petty, even stupid.  If you are still mad after all these years because Aunt Clara didn’t come to your wedding reception, why don’t you grow up?  Forget it”. ~ Boyd K. Packer

So don’t carry for excess baggage yourself and don’t carry it for others!  ~ Kirk Out
