Why waste time planning when ignorance is instantaneous 0

The title here is a slight paraphrase from one of my favorite Calvin and Hobbes strips by Bill Watterson.

Calvin has to write a report for class.  He knows nothing about his topic, yet complains about what a busy guy he is, with all the important stuff he, a six-year old, has on his schedule, rather than doing some research for his report.

Hobbes rolls his eyes and sagely replies, “Right. Why waste time learning when ignorance is instantaneous.”

I think my paraphrase is apropos to all those entrepreneurs and business owners, running their companies without plans, without follow-up, without the knowledge and benefits gained from ongoing planning-vs-actual results review.

Right. Why waste time planning when ignorance is instantaneous.
