Anything that takes longer to plan than to do isn't worth doing

People used to talk about television ruining the imagination of a generation, but that was never true. Watching too much television can only be good for your imagination. You might only be able to imagine things in the vocabulary of television.

The real ruination visited upon our generation is brought to you courtesy of instant gratification. The amount of things I can do without any planning is staggering. I can go to Thailand without planning anything. Thailand is pretty far away. Go to a travel agent, buy a ticket and a travel guide. I can get almost any cd in less than three googles. Every TV show, movie, video game or album is in the internet and can be accessed with no effort. Curious fellows can get a small taster of any information without doing any research.

Planning things; setting up a structure ahead of time to complete certain objectives is not something you do. You don't need to anymore, because if your friend doesn't know the plan you can just text them anyway.

    A magician gives you a ring that, when worn, will let you see the world as it truly is.
    However, the ring will never leave your finger, and you will be unable to ever describe to another living person what you see.

    Except if you want a project to succeed you do have to plan for it.

    The things you're talking about are the various things you put on the to-do list for a plan. Simple plans don't need as much production as they used to.

    Project: Go To Thailand.

    - research Thailand
    - find a good price for airfare
    - fly there and buy some ladyboys

    This is silly.

    Why would this ever be considered a problem by any other standard of "DAMN KIDS!"

    We can plan, but not having to is not a bad thing. We can also travel places really fast and talk over long distances. RUINATION OF OUR GENERATION!

    No, going to Thailand is in. Because you will spend more time in thailand than you spent planning it.

    how about you give us an example of something you don't do any more because it requires more planning than you feel is worthwhile
