A Quote by Gustav Metzman on business, difficulty, future, men, planning, and time

Most business men generally are so busy coping with immediate and piecemeal matters that there is a lamentable tendency to let the "long run" or future take care of itself. We often are so busy "putting out fires," so to speak, that we find it difficult to do the planning that would prevent those fires from occurring in the first place. As a prominent educator has expressed it, Americans generally "spend so much time on things that are urgent that we have none left to spend on those that are important."
