Over my career as a planner and as an instructor of planning, I have worked with a lot of different planners from all services and several foreign countries. During that time I have seen a variety of pathologies in planning that can and need to be fixed so that planner can get the most out of their efforts.

So, this paper will address three pathologies associated with Implied Tasks.
