It isn't about being able to see many moves ahead, Martin. I admire your interest in chess but that's a misconception. It does have a little to do with anticipation, implying that, you must be able to see a bit in advance. However, as an Intermediate Player, I can say, in chess, as well as in life, it isn't about mostly about anticipation. It's about standing your ground and being able to move forward while keeping the same amount of strength to overwhelm your opponent and keeping track of your vulnerabilities (defenses).
