50. Part of the problem with our governmet and society
The lack of long term thinking. Parties and government officials only think ahead to the next election cycle, corporations only think ahead to the yearly bottom line. Our government isn't designed for rapid change, yet the myriad of problems facing our society requires just that, rapid change. So instead, we muddle along making progress in inches at a time, while this country and world is going under measured in feet and yards at a time. And all the while, that soothing dance band is still playing.

Stop buying into this short term trap, and take a look at the bigger picture, engage in long term thinking.
