It might be absolutely fantastic, except for the fact that you get it -wrong- so much of the time. You have to be adequately skilled at anticipating consequences in order for chess to teach you that you should. If you're pretty poor at guessing what somebody will do (or if your opponents are sufficiently unpredictable), it can easily teach you the opposite; don't bother wasting time planning things that won't happen.
