Do you think of things before they happen; or do you simply react to everyone's move?
To be several moves ahead is difficult in chess. In real life, its nearly impossible. Thats how I see it anyway. But I do like chess metaphors!
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.

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).
I hope this helps!
