Wait by Frank Partnoy. TRY this thought experiment.

Wait by Frank Partnoy. A friend says: "Let's get together in the next couple of weeks, when you have some time on your hands. At one extreme is the billionaire investor Warren Buffett who is compared to a baseball player waiting for the right ball to hit, with no compulsion to avoid hitting the many that are thrown at him. The value of law and finance Professor Frank Partnoy's book lies in its concern with a more profound consequence of our fast culture, the effect on our decision-making. I have long held the view that the reason so many bad decisions are made in business is more a consequence of deciding too quickly rather than deciding incorrectly.

In Wait Frank Partnoy explores delay in both short and long term decisions and how understanding the former can help us better handle the latter. Remember the marshmallow experiment and its discoveries concerning decision making and self-control?

In this counterintuitive and insightful work, author Frank Partnoy weaves together findings from hundreds of scientific studies and interviews with wide-ranging experts to craft a picture of effective decision-making that runs counter to our brutally fast-paced world. Even as technology exerts new pressures to speed up our lives, it turns out that the choices we make––unconsciously and consciously, in time frames varying from milliseconds to years––benefit profoundly from delay.
