When we plan ahead for the future, we have to think about a long period of time. Sometimes it’s cheaper “in the long run” to pay a lot of money now for a good quality product, instead of something cheaper that will have to be replaced soon. A strategy, such as staying up all night to study, might work well for today, but if you keep doing it for a long time, it might not work very well.
