Strategic thinking from The Greatest

Short but sweet post from GAL here...here's the snippet I think is extremely wise:

Instead of cases just meandering forward, each day the lawyer’s required to think strategically. The lawyer has to anticipate what moves on offense need to occur in order to achieve the result. The lawyer has tremendous incentive to achieve that result sooner, rather than later. This is because hours of time now count against him/her in contrast to the hourly billing approach where hours count against the client.

Isn't that true? "Meandering" is a great adjective to describe hourly billing; I'm guilty sometimes.
