How To Save Time - Create a Kit

Does getting ready for a fun activity sometimes seem like so much work you forgo the fun altogether? If youíre anything like me, the activities you enjoy often involve gathering supplies - ugh, right? Hiking is a good example. For a day on the trails you need a backpack, water bottle, sunscreen, bug repellant, snacks, first aid supplies, a compass, extra socks, and maybe more. Having to gather all of these things each and every time you want to take a hike can be a huge time waster. Plus, when you start gathering from scratch there's always a significant possibility you'll accidentally leave something behind.

That risk is probably OK if you hike once or twice a year, but if you go multiple times a season you can save yourself a whole lot of hassle by putting together a hiking kit. The good news, kits can made for any activity. They save time and energy, helping you get out the door and on your way in a stress free, efficient manner.

For summer fun you may want to keep a beach kit. Moms with little ones may want a park outing kit. If you have kids in sports you may want a game watching kit. I belong to a number of civic organizations, for each of those I have a created simple kit. When it's time for a meeting I don't have to worry about gathering up the right stuff, I just grab the appropriate kit and head off with confidence knowing I have all I need.

Here are a few guidelines for creating kits.

The bottom line - a kit is an organizing tool that makes it easy to do an activity. Investing a little time up front creating a kit will allow you to embark on that activity at the drop of a hat. Now that's fun!
