The conflict between short-term thinking and long-term thinking can be heated and adversarial.
They can also be very important. Because neither perspective is absolutely right or wrong, just different, with different sets of priorities, each represents truth for one group, and misguided, misinformed, illogical ideas for another.
On this episode of my podcast, Let’s Know Things, I discuss this dichotomy using several different examples, ranging from the conflict between a tech-sector billionaire and an online journalism behemoth to the difficulties in choosing between the convenience of now versus the ideological purity of later.
