Are both the same? You should have planned ahead. You should have thought about it earlier.

Hi -- In this case, just thinking about something isn't really the same as taking the action to plan for it. As Zachary stated, they're basically the same meaning, but the sentence isn't as precise. This is similar to the confusion that exists between 'anticipated' and 'expected' in English. One is passive, the other more active. Ex: I expected a large crowd for the party. I anticipated the crowd by adding more chairs. Hope this helps.
