How many moves ahead?

Garry Kasparov the famous chess grand master was once asked how many moves ahead he was able to see.

He answered that he could not necessarily “see” the game many moves ahead. 

In fact he said, “a player looking eight moves ahead [faces] as many possible games as there are stars in the galaxy.” ( collision detection

And he concluded that grand masters are really only concerned with the next move and making sure it is the best one.

We can apply the same thinking to our business or life strategies.

It’s useful to look far into the distance and dream, but it is the next move that really counts.
