Great post by the author. If we look at the airline industry, their excellent safety record is based on checks, checks, checks. Until the checklist is not complete the aircraft cannot take off.

Many years ago, I remember while on a trip our car stopped and after finding out that it had run out of fuel, father and the driver had to walk a few kilometers to get a plastic can of diesel from the village we had just passed.
