The Power of Habit

I wonder how much of short-termism is habitual?

Short-termism, sacrificing the future by acting mindlessly in the present, is my current enigma. It's everywhere. WTF can we do to re-balance things? The scope of short-term thinking is vast: organizational behavior, capitalism, the ecosystem, lack of purpose, and individual choice. Why do we do things that are stupid?

Acting as if tomorrow matters is woven into my thoughts on "workscapes," e.g. living networks of teams prospering by working ever better in pursuit of purpose.
