In many circumstances, speed is not only of the essence, it is critical. It’s only superior being is timing.
As I move my belongings from one home to another I am reminded of this fact. My possessions are few outside of a bed, a tv, a bookshelf along with clothing and a few miscellaneous items (BJJ medals, guns, ammo, etc).

My travels only reinforce this fact as I carefully pack a uniform and a few days clothes/essentials, allowing me to zip through airports and get to my destination in a timely fashion.
Despite our advances as a human race, some things will never change. Such as the simple beauty of the fact that “less really is more”.
