Then yes, zone focusing (or perhaps I should say pre-focusing) would solve your problem.

There are other ways around this. If you're concerned about sharpest possible focus -- well, let's say your subject is mountains way, way, way in the distance. So now, at f/11, you might pre-focus like this:

Now the sharpest focus point is at infinity, but because you're at f/11, everything down to just under 10 feet (probably closer to 8) will still be acceptably sharp. If you don't need anything that close, you could stop down to f/8 or even f/4 and save yourself a little time.
