Why is Saudi Crown Prince always in a Hurry?

Taking sharp turns and quick decisions, The Saudi Prince Muhammad bin Salman is in the highlights these days. He has distinct and futuristic plans in his mind, and to accomplish them, the prince is working around the clock.[irp]

Thomas Friedman of New York Times had this question in mind whether Prince Muhammad will be able to make and succeed, he assumed that the Prince is doing too many things altogether, perfection may not be the criteria but yes, the initiative is great and the Prince is doing a great work for the progress of the Saudi Kingdom.

According to Friedman, someone has to pull Saudi Arabia into the 21st century and Price Mohammad bin Salman has stepped up in this job. He is trying his best to modernize the Kingdom so that Saudi Arabia can easily plunge into the modern era.

But it is not an easy task as it seems, it is not less than a challenge because Saudi Arabia includes a large group of older, more rural and more traditional Saudi citizens who are almost against to the new traditions and modernization. Pulling them into 21st century to run with the modern world is rather a war.
