The debt of thinking & planning

As we go through our daily activities it seems we often don’t have enough time for thinking & planning. Most of the tasks are things we need to do today; a problem we need to solve now. A few of what we do are plans and preparation for a future issues. It seems we tend to like giving responsibilities of our future to other entities so that we can have fun now.

The problem with that is the outcome or solution we get is determined not by ourselves but by someone else. It seems we are often addressing things that needs immediate attention or damage control. It is often hard to do the work that will contribute to the result of something in a few months time. It seems like most of us don’t have time for planning. We are in a constant damage control mode.

Are we all running a big debt of thinking and planning?

If I had an hour to solve a problem I’d spend 55 minutes thinking about the problem and 5 minutes thinking about solutions. ~ Albert Einstein
