Look at people who solve Rubik’s cubes. Like any complex puzzle, they look at the problem from each angle (at least six in this case) before exploding into action.
This applies to many more fields than speed solving kids’ toys. To name a few:
All of the above benefit from juxtaposing deep thought with decisive action. Don’t ponder possibilities when you should be acting, and don’t act when you should be reflecting.
“If I had an hour to solve a problem I'd spend 55 minutes thinking about the problem and 5 minutes thinking about solutions.” -Albert Einstein
