Any action without a plan, whether implemented in a day or a century, is rushed by definition.

Or, to use the old cliche, failing to plan is planning to fail.

Politicos could learn an awful lot from bodged up IT projects - you know the ones that cause years and years of pain and leave technical debt the size of Texas just because someone rushed into the early stages without stopping to think for a few minutes.
Slogans aren't solutions.
