What does Strategic Thinking mean?

What does strategic thinking mean or what does it mean to be a strategic thinker?

Investing time physically and mentally planning and preparing for something specific or for a broad number of activities, events and desired or expected outcomes. Considering not only the moment at hand or an immediate time frame but also the long term and the potential consequences of actions or inaction. Asking yourself a variety of questions and then searching for responses to ensure that every possible option, potential outcome and angle has been given the necessary consideration. Giving thought and consideration to others who are somehow involved in or connected to the plan and desired outcomes, to allow for their input, assistance and coordinating of schedules.
