Keeping the future in mind is vital for long-term health. No matter if we're talking about personal vices or managing a business, everything we do now affects us down the road. The challenges of putting out fires today, filling orders today, making profits today, all seem to place tomorrow on the backburner. Of course, every company plans for the future in some capacity -- monthly and yearly forecasts, strategic meetings, investigating new revenue streams, establishing long term goals, etc. But what many overlook is planning for the distant future. We're talking about five, 10, 15 years down the line. And according to Forbes' piece, "Why Organizations Have To Think About The Day After Tomorrow," many companies are putting themselves at risk by not dedicating enough time in this area.
